  1. Salutare, am tot cautat pe Google o lista cu toate device-urile android care au Hangout pre-instalat si nimic. E cineva pe aici care m-ar putea ajuta?(sau macar o lista cu android fara Hangout pre-instalat).
  2. Keychains raided, sandboxes busted, passwords p0wned, but Apple silent for six months Six university researchers have revealed deadly zero-day flaws in Apple's iOS and OS X, claiming it is possible to crack Apple's password-storing keychain, break app sandboxes, and bypass its App Store security checks. Attackers can exploit these bugs to steal passwords from installed apps, including the native email client, without being detected. The team was able to upload malware to Apple's app stores, and passed the vetting processes without triggering any alarms. That malware, when installed on a victim's Mac, raided the keychain to steal passwords for services including iCloud and the Mail app, and all those stored within Google Chrome. Lead researcher Luyi Xing told El Reg he and his team complied with Apple's request to withhold publication of the research for six months, but had not heard back as of the time of writing. They say the holes are still present in Apple's software, meaning their work will likely be consumed by miscreants looking to weaponize the work. Apple was not available for immediate comment. The Indiana University boffins Xing; Xiaolong Bai; XiaoFeng Wang; and Kai Chen joined Tongxin Li, of Peking University, and Xiaojing Liao, of Georgia Institute of Technology, to develop the research, which is detailed in a paper titled Unauthorized Cross-App Resource Access on Mac OS X and iOS. "Recently we discovered a set of surprising security vulnerabilities in Apple's Mac OS and iOS that allows a malicious app to gain unauthorised access to other apps' sensitive data such as passwords and tokens for iCloud, Mail app and all web passwords stored by Google Chrome," Xing told The Register's security desk. "Our malicious apps successfully went through Apple’s vetting process and was published on Apple’s Mac app store and iOS app store. "We completely cracked the keychain service - used to store passwords and other credentials for different Apple apps - and sandbox containers on OS X, and also identified new weaknesses within the inter-app communication mechanisms on OS X and iOS which can be used to steal confidential data from Evernote, Facebook and other high-profile apps." The team was able to raid banking credentials from Google Chrome on the latest OS X 10.10.3, using a sandboxed app to steal the system's keychain data and secret iCloud tokens, and passwords from password vaults. Photos were stolen from WeChat, and the token for popular cloud service Evernote was nabbed, allowing it to be fully compromised. "The consequences are dire," the team wrote in the paper. Some 88.6 per cent of 1,612 OS X and 200 iOS apps were found "completely exposed" to unauthorized cross-app resource access (XARA) attacks allowing malicious apps to steal otherwise secure data. Xing says he reported the flaws to Apple in October 2014. Apple security bods responded to the researchers in emails seen by El Reg expressing understanding for the gravity of the attacks, and asked for at least six months to fix the problems. In February, the Cupertino staffers requested an advanced copy of the research paper. Google's Chromium security team was more responsive, and removed keychain integration for Chrome, noting that it could likely not be solved at the application level. AgileBits, owner of popular software 1Password, said it could not find a way to ward off the attacks nor make the malware "work harder" some four months after it was warned of the vulnerabilities. ("Neither we nor Luyi Xing and his team have been able to figure out a completely reliable way to solve this problem," said AgileBits's Jeffrey Goldberg in a blog post today.) The team's work into XARA attacks is the first of its kind; Apple's app isolation mechanisms are supposed to stop malicious apps from raiding each other. The researchers found "security-critical vulnerabilities" including cross-app resource-sharing mechanisms and communications channels such as the keychain, WebSocket and Scheme. "Note that not only does our attack code circumvent the OS-level protection but it can also get through the restrictive app vetting process of the Apple Stores, completely defeating its multi-layer defense," the researchers wrote in the paper. They say almost all XARA flaws arise from Apple's cross-app resource sharing and communication mechanisms such as keychain for sharing passwords, BID based separation, and URL scheme for app invocation, which is different from how the Android system works. Their research, previously restricted to Android, would lead to a new line of work for the security community studying how the vulnerabilities affect Apple and other platforms. Here's the boffins' description of their work: Source
  3. Starbucks has rebuffed claims that its mobile app has been hacked, in the wake of reports that scores of its US customers have suffered from credit card fraud. The coffee chain’s US customers have been reporting the theft of hundreds of dollars from their credit cards, in a series of scams seemingly linked to auto top-ups on the Starbucks mobile app. Victims commonly receive emails saying the passwords and login details for Starbucks’ mobile app had been reset before receiving notice of fraudulent transactions. However, Starbucks denies its app has been hacked. In a statement, the coffee chain suggested the isolated reports of fraudulent activity on customers’ online accounts are down to password re-use or other lax security practices by its clients. Starbucks takes the obligation to protect customers’ information seriously. News reports that the Starbucks mobile app has been hacked are false. Like all major retailers, the company has safeguards in place to constantly monitor for fraudulent activity and works closely with financial institutions. To protect the integrity of these security measures, Starbucks will not disclose specific details but can assure customers their security is incredibly important and all concerns related to customer security are taken seriously. Occasionally, Starbucks receives reports from customers of unauthorized activity on their online account. This is primarily caused when criminals obtain reused names and passwords from other sites and attempt to apply that information to Starbucks. To protect their security, customers are encouraged to use different user names and passwords for different sites, especially those that keep financial information. Reports that hackers were targeting Starbucks mobile users – stealing from linked credit cards without knowing account numbers – first surfaced this week. Bob Sullivan, journalist and consumer advocate, was the the first to report on the scam. Sullivan recommends that all Starbucks consumers immediately disable auto-reload on the Starbucks mobile payments and gift cards. Criminals who obtain username and password credentials for Starbucks.com first drain a consumer’s stored value before siphoning off funds from their linked credit card. Starbucks reportedly allows consumers to move balances from one gift card to another. Hackers can also cash out by using a hijacked account to buy gift cards. These can then be sent to an arbitrary email address which can be trivially registered – without secondary confirmation – from within hijacked Starbucks accounts. In its statement, Starbucks said “customers are not responsible for charges or transfers they did not make. If a customer’s Starbucks Card is registered, their account balance is protected”, so those who have been left out of pocket will hopefully get their money back. The apparent scam appears to be limited to the US. El Reg understands that Starbucks customers in Europe and elsewhere outside North America have not been affected. Roy Tobin, a threat researcher at security software firm Webroot, recommended that consumers and businesses alike should re-examine their security practices. "Credentials leaked in previous cyber-attacks are likely to have been used to allow hackers to siphon off money from Starbucks' customers," Tobin said. "The key security take-away from this incident is the fact that as a company, your customers’ security information often doesn’t exist in a bubble. Passwords are frequently saved to browsers or documents, and are repeatedly re-used by customers across separate online accounts. Consumers should take steps to regularly change their passwords and avoid using the same password across multiple online services," he said. For businesses, the use of two-factor authentication technology can help mitigate against this class of threat, according to Tobin. "Companies must anticipate this vulnerability by implementing more rigorous security processes, making it harder for hackers to access their customers’ accounts," he added. "Best practice for mitigating this is the implementation of a two-factor authentication process that requires the user to verify their identity when logging in from a new device or location whenever financial details are accessed or used," he concluded.

  4. The mobile encryption app NQ Vault has been in the news for bad reasons. Mobile encryption apps are commonly used to prevent access to sensitive data on the phone (such as images, videos, documents and so on). These encryption apps usually offer a vault with your desired password. You can push any secret files to this vault and they would be secure, as the data present in vault is encrypted and would decrypt only when the correct password is entered. The NQ Vault app is one such mobile encryption app which boasted that it “encrypts” and secures your confidential files. All this has now become a joke and we will see why! NQ Vault allows you to pick a private passcode and “encrypts” pictures, texts, and any other data from the eyes of anyone who happens to look through your phone or device. For instance, an attacker who has access to the device should not be able to view the original files unless he knows the passcode. The idea is that even if an attacker pulls these files from the device, since they are encrypted, they would mean nothing but junk. But in case of NQ Vault, it turned out that if an attacker pulls these encrypted files, he could easily get the original files in a matter of seconds. It’s not about weak encryption The point is that NQ Vault doesn’t use any encryption algorithm to secure the user’s data. It just uses XOR substitution. So we are not talking about using a weak algorithm or a weak key. We are talking about having “no algorithm”. As discovered by blogger NinjaDoge24, NQ Vault just XORs the user’s file with a key and calls it “encrypted”. Breaking it step by step I tried to verify this practically, and here is how easy it turned out to be: Download and install the NQ Vault mobile app from Google Play Store on any Android device. Set your desired passcode (say 000). Select any secret file (for example apple.png). Here is the HEX representation of the apple.png file: Note: HEX is a positional numeral system base of 16. It uses sixteen distinct symbols, most often the symbols 0–9 to represent values zero to nine, and to represent values ten to fifteen. You can use HEX Viewer tool to view an image’s hex representation. 3. Now send the image to the NQ Vault using the app. This would mean the file apple.png is encrypted and should have been stored somewhere on the device. This is the message shown by NQ Vault: 4. These so called “encrypted” files are stored on the SD card at the location /mnt/sdcard/SystemAndroid/Data. How do I know this? Well just by looking at SQLite files in this case. Also at the above mentioned location, there is a text file saved by the app which says: 5. But these encrypted files are hidden from the user. So initially a simple ‘ls’ on the folder does not reveal anything. But ‘ls’ with –a attribute would reveal all the hidden files, as shown in the following screenshot. 6. The next thing is to pull out this encrypted file to the local machine. I used the adb pull command for this purpose. As seen below, the file is stored with a .bin extension. 7. Now see the HEX representation of this encrypted file: 8. Now just XOR abc.png & the encrypted file:\ 9. What this suggests is, based on the passcode selected by the user, it generates a “key” (30 in this case) and just XORs the user’s file with this key! Upon investigation, it turned out that this key value is always between 00 and ff, which means 255 possible values. As explained by NinjaDoge24, here are some of the passcodes and their corresponding key values: Thus, an attacker who has access to the encrypted files just need to brute force XOR with 255 possible values to get the original files back! It’s not over! The story is not over yet. It is also discovered that the app performs this worthless encryption only for the first 128 bits of the user’s file, and stores the rest in plain format. So it’s all out there in the raw for the attacker to see. For example, in the above example, notice that only the first 128 bits are XOR-ed, and rest of the bits remain the same. The below screenshot gives a clear idea: Notice that only the initial bits are transformed, while the rest of the file remains the same. Here is a simple script written by NinjaDoge24 that automates this whole process. Lessons learned Everyone makes mistakes, including reputed organizations such as Facebook, Google etc., and we all understand that. But this is just asking to be punished. All those millions of users who believed the claims of this software and unknowingly rated it at 4.6 will now feel cheated. The fact that CNET, PC Magazine and many other site reviews rated it highly points out another problem – it’s hard to trust the claims of an app just by looking at what it does. It is definitely not possible for review sites to perform a security audit of an app before they rate it. Companies need to realize the importance of the trust that users have in their brand and also need to remember that once lost, it’s very hard to gain it back. Source

  6. Last year at Google I/O developer event, Google launched a limited beta "App Runtime for Chrome" (ARC) project, which now expanded to run millions of Android apps within Chrome browser. Google has released a new developer tool called App Runtime for Chrome (ARC) Welder that allows Android apps to run on Chrome for Linux, Windows, and OS X systems. App Runtime for Chrome (ARC) was an early experiment specifically designed for app developers, but now anyone can download it. Google Chrome's ARC Welder app can now run any of your favorite Android apps like WhatsApp, Candy Crush, Angry Birds, all from your Chrome web browser. ARC welder tool operates via some special runtime implemented using Native Client (NaCl) in-browser binary execution tech. Native Client is a Chrome sandboxing technology that allows Chrome plugins and apps to run at near-native speeds, taking full advantage of the system's CPU and GPU. Google ported complete Android stack to Native Client, allowing Android apps to run on most major operating systems. Google ARC welder tool is based on Android 4.4, but there are some limitations: you can load only one app at a time you have to select portrait or landscape layout you need to choose, whether you want the app to run on phone- or tablet-style. LEARN HOW TO RUN ANDROID APPS IN CHROME:- Install the latest Google Chrome browser. Download and run the ARC Welder app from the Chrome Store. Add third party APK file host. After downloading APK app file to your PC, click Open. Select the mode -> "Tablet" or "Phone" -> in which you want to run your app. Finally, click the "Launch App" button. I have personally tried this tool before writing, and some of my favorite Android apps work pretty well. SOURCE
  7. Do you realize how often your smartphone is sharing your location data with various companies? It is more than 5000 times in just two weeks. That is little Shocking but True! A recent study by the security researchers from Carnegie Mellon reveals that a number of smartphone applications collect your location-related data — a lot more than you think. The security researcher released a warning against the alarming approach: "Your location [data] has been shared 5,398 times with Facebook, GO Launcher EX, Groupon and seven other [applications] in the last 14 days." During their study, researchers monitored 23 Android smartphone users for three weeks. First Week - Participants were asked to use their smartphone apps as they would normally do. Second Week - An app called App Ops was installed to monitor and manage the data those apps were using. Third Week - The team of researchers started sending a daily “privacy nudge” alert that would ping participants each time an app requested location-related data. Researchers concluded: Some apps for Android are tracking user's movements every three minutes. Some apps for Android are attempting to collect more data than it needed. Groupon, a deal-of-the-day app, requested one participant's coordinates 1,062 times in two weeks. Weather Channel, a weather report app, asked device location an average 2,000 times, or every 10 minutes. The participants were unaware of how closely they are being tracked by different apps, and many were surprised by the end results. Another participant wrote, "The number (356 times) was huge, unexpected." The research team found that privacy managing software helped manage access to data. When the members granted access to App Ops, they collectively checked their App permissions 51 times and restricted 272 permissions on 76 different apps. Just one of the participants failed to review permissions. As per users mentality, once the participants have made the changes to the app permission, they hardly looked at them after a few days. With the help of App Ops privacy app, in the span of eight days, the participants collectively reviewed app permissions 69 times, blocking 122 additional permissions on about 47 different apps. Ultimately, the team believes that if a user began getting the privacy nudges on a daily basis, they'll definitely go back to their privacy settings and restrict apps that are tracking users more closely.

  8. Yesterday at its annual F8 Developer Conference in San Francisco, Facebook officially turned its Messenger app into a Platform. Facebook's Messenger Platform allows third-party app developers to integrate their apps with Facebook messenger app. However, other popular messaging apps are already offering similar features, like Chinese WeChat, but Facebook release is much bigger than any other platform. At F8 Developer Conference, Facebook released SDK v4.0 for iOS and Android along with Graph API v2.3 that enable app developers to add new messenger platform features to their custom apps quickly. Facebook users can install these compatible third-party apps from the messenger app, which offers users to send animated GIFs, images, videos, and more content within the Facebook Messenger app easily. BOON FOR BOTH FACEBOOK AND THIRD PARTY DEVELOPERS Facebook Messenger Platform will offer third party app developers to reach out Facebook’s 600 Millions of users. So, the move will be a boon for third-party app developers. On the other hand, the move will help Facebook to integrate its messaging service directly into the vast ecosystem of Android and iOS apps. BUSINESSES ON MESSENGER The Social Networking giant also announced "Businesses on Messenger," feature that will soon let users connect directly with companies and make direct conversation, replacing the need for retailer chat windows in the process. When customers place an order for goods or services, they will be prompted to head to Facebook Messenger for communications including modifying orders, tracking orders, returning merchandise and getting answers to questions. Third party app developers who are interested in learning more and integrating their apps with the new Facebook Messenger Platform can grab the SDK on Facebook’s website. LAUNCH PARTNERS The new Messenger Platform is open to all developers, but Facebook launched 40 different apps initially with its partners, including ESPN, Giphy, Imgur, The Weather Channel and Bitmoji. The complete list of Messenger Platform launch partners are as follow: Action Movie FX Bitmoji Cleo Video Texting Clips ClipDis Ditty Dubsmash Effectify EmotionAR Emu ESPN FlipLip Voice Changer Fotor GIF Keyboard GIFJam Giphy Hook’d Imgur Imoji JibJab Kanvas Keek Legend Magisto Meme Generator Noah Camera Pic Stitch PicCollage GIF Cam PingTank Pyro!

  11. Security researchers at IBM have uncovered a bug in cloud storage service provider Dropbox's software development kit (SDK) that potentially leaves millions of Android users open to attack. Researchers at IBM's X-Force Application Security Research warned that the 'DroppedIn' flaw affects many applications using the Dropbox SDK. "It allows attackers to connect applications on mobile devices to a Dropbox account they control," explained vice president of IBM Security Caleb Barlow. "This vulnerability may affect any Android app that uses the Dropbox SDK versions 1.5.4 to 1.6.1, and can be exploited locally using malware and remotely using drive-by techniques." A Dropbox spokesperson told V3 the firm issued an update fixing the flaw in December 2014 and added it could only be exploited in "very specific circumstances" on devices where the main Dropbox Android app was not installed. Barlow said despite the assurances hackers could still steal data from vulnerable systems without the patch. "The vulnerability allows attackers to execute malicious code during the log-in process that allows them to access the random number, called a 'nonce', that Dropbox uses as part of the authentication process," he said. "Once the attacker has the nonce, they can enter an access token that is also used to identify a user and then upload or download files into/from the victim's vulnerable app to the attacker's Dropbox account." He added to fully fix the problem application developers will have to install the SDK patch. "There are many apps that rely on the Dropbox SDK, including Yahoo Mail, Microsoft Office Mobile, AgileBits 1Password, and several productivity, photo editing/sharing tools," he said. "Application developers that use the Android Dropbox SDK need to upgrade their version to at least 1.6.2 or above ASAP which is where the patch for this vulnerability exists." The Dropbox spokesperson moved to allay these concerns telling V3 "most Android app developers using our SDK have updated their apps so users don't need to do anything." The news follows reports that application developers are failing to install critical security updates. Researchers at McAfee reported in February that a number of "popular" applications still do not include critical patches for the high-profile BERserk and Heartbleed Secure Sockets Layer flaws. Source
  12. Android phones can be tracked without using their GPS or wi-fi data by studying their power use over time, a study has found. A smartphone uses more power the further away it is from a cellular base and the more obstacles are in its way as it reaches for a signal. Additional power use by other activities could be factored out with algorithms, the researchers found. They created an app designed to collect data about power consumption. "The malicious app has neither permission to access the GPS nor other location providers (eg cellular or wi-fi network)," the team - Yan Michalevsky, Dan Boneh and Aaron Schulman, from the computer science department at Stanford University, along with Gabi Nakibly, from Rafael Ltd - wrote in their paper. "We only assume permission for network connectivity and access to the power data. "These are very common permissions for an application, and are unlikely to raise suspicion on the part of the victim." There are 179 apps currently available on Android app store Google Play that request this information, the team add. Activity such as listening to music, activating maps, taking voice calls or using social media all drain the battery but this can be discounted due to "machine learning", the report says. "Intuitively the reason why all this noise does not mislead our algorithms is that the noise is not correlated with the phone's location," it says. "Therefore a sufficiently long power measurement (several minutes) enables the learning algorithm to 'see' through the noise." The tests were carried out on phones using the 3G network but did not measure signal strength as that data is protected by the device. 'Stuffed with sensors' "With mobile devices now becoming ubiquitous, it is troubling that we are seeing so many ways in which they can be used to track us," said cyber-security expert Prof Alan Woodward, from Surrey University. "I think people sometimes forget that smartphones are stuffed full of sensors from gyroscopes and GPS to the more obvious microphones and cameras. "This latest work shows that even that basic characteristics (power consumption) has the potential to invade privacy if monitored in the right way," he added. "We are approaching the point where the only safe way to use your phone is to pull the battery out - and not all phones let you do that." Source
  13. Several reports from the popular news websites had suggested that WhatsApp, the widely popular messaging application, is working on a new version of its instant messaging client, called WhatsApp PLUS, in order to provide its users a lot of handy new features. However the news seems to be completely fake!! WhatsApp Plus has already been launched a long ago and is not at all genuine as it is not associated with the Facebook-owned WhatsApp. Many users claimed to have already used WhatsApp Plus before. The latest news reports insist that WhatsApp Plus will bring 700 new themes and more number of emoticons, as well as will provide users with an option to change the font, and color among other things in an attempt to make the app look and feel more personalized. Moreover, the app will provide better privacy compared to the existing one. But, here you need to have a second thought. If we talk about better privacy, the only genuine report about WhatsApp came late last year, when WhatsApp partnered with Open Whisper Systems, a collaborative open source project to offer end-to-end encryption in its Android client. But, that was also with the same label, WhatsApp. The domain of WhatsApp Plus wasn't registered by WhatsApp, Inc, according to the Whois information of the alleged Whatsapp website. In order to find links to shady websites, BGR reports that they decompiled the WhatsApp Plus APK file circulating around the web, which revealed that the "app is communicating with illegitimate sources." Beware those who find the app genuine and interesting to download. There are many fake and malicious messaging apps that trick users to download and install, what could potentially be a malware. WhatsApp Plus is also not a genuine, but an effort by unauthorised websites to trick people into downloading it. We will strongly advise people to not download WhatsApp Plus, or any app that claims to be a new rather different version of WhatsApp. It has been confirmed that WhatsApp hasn’t launched any such app. The app could be a malware that can trouble your phone and downloading an alternative, would be laying your privacy and security at risk.
