jczarnyat April 05,2015 Wasn't that impressed by this video. Didn't learn anything new that is not common sense at this point. I'd say if you were looking into getting into the cutting edge of computer forensics mobile would be the place to be, and you will probably be in high demand for the foreseeable future.
connellytat April 07,2015 I think Trend Micro is using some Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) to sell mobile protection software. The odds of getting malware through official software channels such as Google Play or the iTunes App Store are extremely low now. A bigger risk than malware is data loss by losing the phone. I'm not saying what he is suggesting doesn't happen, but 130,000 unique malicious apps in a year isn't really that much compared to PC estimates of 70-80k new threats per day.
gmazurat April 09,2015 Everyone with a smartphone is a target. The advice at the end is sound, especially sticking to official distribution channels. Open Source platforms i.e. android, generally offer more useful and innovative apps. However, with added functionality comes additional risk. The android open source model is the target of more attacsk. Android is the target of well over 90% of smart phone attacks, most of it in the Eastern European market. Best bet is do your research before downloading an app, or go with a platform with more secure distribution model...or buy some Trend Micro smartphone security app.
Ahmedat April 23,2015 o yes everything is in smartphones know, that why hackers are moving towards building these kind of techniques to hit mobile phones and yes everybody know how to use smartphone but surely not much people know how to protect themselves against mobile hackers.
