  3. ProtonVPN Swiss-Based VPN Launches ProtonVPN, a VPN service by the makers of the privacy focused ProtonMail email service, is out of beta testing and now available to the public. The creators of the Swiss-based VPN service promise the same level of trust, transparency, and communication that has been fundamental to the success of ProtonMail. ProtonVPN ships with four subscription plans, of which the first is entirely free. It is limited in regards to speed, devices that you may run it on simultaneously, and the number of countries you can connect to. It is not limited in terms of bandwidth however. The first paid plan, ProtonVPN Basic, is available for 4€ per month. It lets you connect to all servers, supports connections on two devices at the same time, and offers high speed. ProtonVPN has three speed tiers right now. Low for free accounts, high for basic accounts, and highest for the Plus and Visionary subscription. The two remaining plans, ProtonVPN Plus and Visionary, for €8 and €24 offer the highest speed, five or ten devices that you may connect from simultaneously, as well as extra features such as Plus servers reserved to these plans, Secure Core which adds extra protection against VPN compromise by routing through the Secure Core Network of ProtonVPN, and Tor Server support to send all traffic through Tor with a single click. The Visionary plan on top of that includes a ProtonMail email account on top of all that. Free users get an option to join a 7 day free trial of ProtonVPN Plus. Secure Core is an interesting option, as it routes traffic through multiple servers before it leaves the ProtonVPN network. This means that anyone monitoring the exit server won't be able to detect the IP address of ProtonVNP users, nor match browser activity to that IP address. Secure servers are located in Switzerland, Iceland and Sweden only. ProtonVPN encrypts all traffic with AES-256, uses 2048-bit RSA key exchange, and HMAC with SHA256 for message authentication. Other security related features that are supported include Forward Secrecy, use of OpenVPN and IKEv2 protocols only, a strict no logging policy, DNS leak prevention, and Kill switch support. ProtonVPN supports P2P traffic on top of that. ProtonVPN comes with clients for Android and iOS, Windows, Linux and Mac. Users of the service may also configure OpenVPN by downloading OpenVPN configuration files. ProtonVPN Windows client The ProtonVPN Windows client installs without issues. You need to supply your account credentials to start using it. It displays the current connection status, and the available locations you can connect to. Once you have established a connection with a click on a country, or one of the available servers, you see additional information in the interface. This includes the connected server, IP address, up and download speed, server load, a world map with information on the server location, and session information. As far as options are concerned: you can enable the VPN Kill Switch in the options, change the default protocol from UDP to TCP, and configure auto connect options. Another interesting feature of the ProtonVNP client for Windows is support for profiles. You can create profiles, and use these profiles to connect to specific servers quickly. This includes, connecting to the fastest available server of a country. Verdict ProtonVPN is one of the best, if not the best free VPN options right now, hands down. Since you are not limited in terms of bandwidth, you can use the free account all day and night long. That's good enough for all web browsing and low speed activities that you can run on your system. You should not expect to get enough bandwidth out of the free plan to stream in 4K or download very large files quickly, but that is to be expected of a free service. It remains to be seen how well the network will handle the onrush of new users who will certainly flock to the service now that it is out of beta and available to the public. ProtonVPN Plus and Visionary seem pricey, especially when compared to services that charge less for a lifetime subscription than ProtonVPN does for six months. Still, the extra privacy and security options are one of the best options that you have when it comes to maximum privacy on the Internet. Now You: Have you tried ProtonVPN? What's your take on the service? Source

  7. Android users beware! Over 800 Android apps Google Play Store are found to be infected with information-collecting malware dubbed Xavier. According to Trend Micro security experts, the malware has been pre-installed on a wide range of free Android applications, such as photo editors and wallpapers, and has been downloaded millions of times so far. The Xavier malware is in fact an ad library – an element, integrated in free apps to enable advertising as a revenue source for their developers, and often referred to as adware. But being a relatively harmless and simple piece of adware when emerged two years ago, Xavier has recently evolved to a more dangerous and sophisticated kind of malicious software. Trend Micro’s security experts say it is now capable of evading detection, remote code execution, and stealing information. In other words, the malware is smart enough to escape from being analysed by security programs, it has been designed to download remotely executable codes from a server, and it is configured to silently collect sensitive user data including email address, device id, model, OS version, country, manufacturer, SIM card operator, resolution, and installed apps. See detail: Analyzing Xavier: An Information-Stealing Ad Library on Android An example of an application on Google Play that contains an embedded Xavier ad library The highest number of reportedly infected users are from countries in South-east Asia such like Vietnam, Philippines, and Indonesia, with a smaller number of downloads from the US and Europe. The trend we see is more alarming since it is not the first time when Google Play Store is reported to host numerous malware infected apps. It actually happened twice just in the last few months: in March, when more than 100 Play Store apps tried to infect Android devices with Windows malware, and in May, when over 36 million Android devices where affected by the Judy malware. On the bright side is the fact that you still have easy ways to protect your smartphones. The rules of thumb are simple: always download your apps from trusted developers on Google Play, read the reviews before the installation, and keep your device and apps updated. Article source

  12. Hi Guys I'm interested in what people consider a standard install required to protect your android devices. What Anti Virus, What Ad blocker and any other software people install when looking to secure an Android device. Having a Windows background you get told to keep your AV up-to date and apply security patches but what applies to the Android environment?
  13. Ks Clean: Run and install: OK, OK or, er, OK? A malicious Android app that downloads itself from advertisements posted on forums strongly resists removal, security firm Zscaler warns. The dodgy Android utility poses as "Ks Clean", an Android cleaner app. Once installed, the app displays a fake system update message in which the only option presented to the user is to select the "OK" button, giving victims little immediate option other than to accept a supposed security update. As soon as the user presses "OK", the malware prompts the installation of another APK named "Update". The Update app asks for administrator privileges which, if granted, can't be revoked. The app uses the insidious mask of a "security update" to get a user to complete the installation. After that, there is nothing to stop malware from slinging pop-up ads at victims even when the user is using other apps. Users would be unable to easily uninstall the app using the traditional "Uninstall" option because it has admin rights. This is a "security update". It's for your own good and you must comply. Zscaler has identified over 300 instances of malicious APKs from this campaign affecting users in US and UK over the last two weeks, including an attack on a conspiracy forum called "GodLikeProductions". "On one such forum we found entitled 'GodLikeProductions', visitors complained about the automatically downloading app, but those messages were either removed or ignored by the forum's hosts, allowing the problem to perpetuate," Zcaler reports.

  18. This is the Essential Phone The Essential Phone, brought to us by the person who created Android, is finally ready for the spotlight. It’s an incredibly audacious and ambitious project, with an outlandish screen and the beginnings of a modular ecosystem. First, the Android phone basics: the Essential Phone costs $699 with top-of-the-line specs and features. As you can see above, it prominently features an edge-to-edge display that one-ups even the Samsung Galaxy S8 by bringing it all the way to the the top of the phone, wrapping around the front-facing selfie camera. It’s a unique take on a big screen that makes the phone stand out — and it’s smart, too. Often, the status bar at the top of an Android phone doesn’t fill that middle space with icons, so it’s efficient. The screen does leave some bezel at the bottom of the phone, but nevertheless it’s as close to the whole front of a phone being display as I’ve seen. Essential is launching the phone in the US to start, and it’s filled the phone with radios that should make it work on all major carriers, alongside usual Android flagship internals like a Qualcomm 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. And because Essential seems to be hanging its hat on the idea of shipping phones without extraneous junk (the designers don’t even put a logo on the exterior), chances seem good that there won’t be a ton of extraneous software laded on to slow the phone down. Essential is clearly planning on releasing a very well-made phone: the screen looks promising, it has no annoying logos, and it is built with a combination of titanium and ceramic so it can survive a drop test “without blemish, unlike the aluminum competitor devices.” (Those would be Samsung and Apple, if you’re wondering.) But nice hardware isn’t all that hard to come by on Android phones, so the company is aiming to build an ecosystem of accessories. It starts with a magnetic connector and wireless data transfer. Essential will ship a 360-degree camera that can click in to the top of the phone, and the company will also offer a charging dock. Both connect to the phone with small metal pogo pins. They won’t entirely replace USB-C for most people, but Essential is clearly hoping that they could someday. peaking of ports, there is no traditional 3.5mm headphone jack — which is a bummer. We’re told that it will ship with a headphone dongle in the box. It’s possible that other audio accessories could be made that could clip on to the magnetic accessory port. The Essential Phone also has a good take on the dual-camera systems we’ve seen on other phones. Rather than use the second lens for telephoto or bokeh, it’s using it for a monochrome sensor, just like Huawei has been doing with the P9 and P10. That second sensor will be able to take in more light than a traditional color camera, meaning it can be combined with the regular 13-megapixel for better low-light shots. The front-facing camera is in line with current expectations, too: an 8-megapixel sensor that can also capture 4K video. All that sounds great, but it ignores some key facts in the smartphone space: Apple and Samsung have it pretty locked up right now. The pessimist might say that although this phone looks incredible, it is also likely to break upon the shoals of the phone market, the same rocks that have cracked every Android phone that doesn’t have the Samsung logo emblazoned on it: carrier support, consumer interest, and lack of true differentiation. But when it comes to cracking on the rocks, Andy Rubin claims that the Essential phone’s titanium and ceramic build is better able to withstand a drop test. Presumably, Essential’s grander ambitions are equally durable — it’s impossible to look at just this phone outside the context of Essential’s other announcements: the Essential Home speaker and its Ambient OS. Even if those ambitions don’t bear out, the Essential Phone itself is exciting on its own. It’s a simple, straightforward Android device that respects the user: it’s powerful, clean, and not entirely beholden to the business whims of the giant companies that currently control the mobile and smart home markets. If nothing else, it deserves our attention because it’s coming from Andy Rubin, who knows a thing or two about doing the right thing in the smartphone world. Source
  19. Google has removed 41 Android apps from the official Play Store. The apps were infected with a new type of malware named Judy, and experts estimate the malware infected between 8.5 and 36.5 million users. According to researchers from Check Point, the apps were available on the Play Store for years, but have been clean and virus-free for most of the time. It appears that starting with April 2016, the apps were slowly updated with malicious code. The purpose of this code was to launch a browser app, load an URL, and use JavaScript to locate and click on specific banners that would bring profits to the malware's creators. One company behind most malicious apps According to Check Point, almost all malicious apps were made by a South Korean company called Kiniwini, but registered on the Google Play Store as ENISTUDIO corp. It is unclear if the company added the malicious code itself, or its servers were compromised and the code added by a third-party. Furthermore, besides the hidden ad-clicking activity, the operators of the Judy malware used it to insert intrusive ads in other apps, almost to the point that users had no possibility of viewing or interacting with the original app's content. A list of apps infected with the Judy Android malware is available here. Despite apps going through periodic reviews, Google's Play Store security system, named Bouncer, wasn't able to pick up the malware's malicious activity. Nonetheless, help is coming! Google launches new Android security services On May 17, during the Google I/O annual event, Google announced a new service called Google Play Protect. According to Google, this new service continuously scans all Android apps and user devices for malicious behavior and uses machine learning to detect any suspicious activity. Once it detects a malicious app, it removes it from the phones of all users who installed it. The new Google Play Protect service suite is currently shipping to all devices with the Google Play app installed. Source
  20. Chrome Home is an experimental feature of Chrome for Android that makes major changes to the mobile browser when enabled. Chrome has the reputation of being a very stable browser, one that is kept more or less like it is in regards to the user interface and functionality. While that is certainly the case, Google has worked on modifications to the user interface of the browser all the time in the past. Most of these experiments are not disclosed to users of the browser, while some are launched as experiments to get feedback on them before the decision is made to roll them out to all users, or throw them in the garbage bin. Chrome Home Chrome Home is such a new feature. Unlike other interface modifications or changes in the past, it is a major one. It changes the browser's New Tab Page, but also the main toolbar of Chrome, as it moves it from the top to the bottom of the browser screen. Note that the new feature is only available in beta releases of Chrome right now (Chrome Beta, Chrome Canary, Chrome Dev) First, lets take a look at how you can enable the new Chrome Home feature: Open Google Chrome Dev on your Android device (may also work with Canary and Beta already). Type chrome://flags in the browser's address bar and tap on the submit button to load the address. Locate Chrome Home on the page. The easiest way to do that is to tap on menu, select Find on Page, and enter Chrome Home to jump to the flag right away. Tap on the default menu underneath the Chrome Home flag, and set it to enabled once the selection menu comes up. You are asked to restart Google Chrome at this point to apply the change. Note that there are two additional flags right now that you can enable: Chrome Home Expand Button -- which adds a button to Chrome Home that lets you expand the interface when you tap on it (you need to swipe otherwise). Chrome Home NTP Redesign -- enables the NTP (New Tab Page) redesign for Chrome Home. Chrome Home moves the browser's address bar to the bottom of the screen. This is a major move, considering that most browsers display the address bar at the top. Even if you don't mind the change, it is likely that you will need to grow accustomed to the new position, and that it will feel out of place in the beginning. The move of the address bar is the most visible, but not the only change that Chrome Home introduces. You can swipe up using the toolbar as your base for the motion to display the new tab page interface on the screen. This interface lists top sites (you visited) or popular sites, news, and links to Home, Downloads, Bookmarks and the browsing history. Tip: You can disable the popular sites by setting the flag "show popular sites on the New Tab Page" on chrome://flags to disabled. You can use the swipe motion to increase or decrease the size of the interface. Downloads, bookmarks and history display those directly; useful to manage downloads, open bookmarks, or manage the browsing history of Chrome for Android. (via Stadt Bremerhaven) Article source
  21. All versions of Android are affected by this vulnerability According to a group of security researchers from There's a new Android Researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology and UC Santa Barbara, there's a new Android exploit in the wild, which affects all version of Google's mobile OS. Called Cloak and Dagger, the exploit could allow hackers to steal your information by creating a malicious app that only needs to set two permissions, namely BIND ACCESSIBILITY SERVICE ("a11y") and SYSTEM ALERT WINDOW ("draw on top"), to log keystrokes and steal your passwords and other sensitive information. It's a fact that's not that easy to force users into enabling accessibility permissions, but skilled hackers can trick them into doing so, and once they activate both permissions, they'll be able to install software, steal data from installed apps, and basically take full control of your Android phone without you even knowing. "In particular, we demonstrate how such an app can launch a variety of stealthy, powerful attacks, ranging from stealing user’s login credentials and security PIN, to the silent installation of a God-mode app with all permissions enabled, leaving the victim completely unsuspecting," explained the researchers in their report. Google took the necessary steps to prevent such attacks Shortly after the researchers made this discovery, it appears that Google immediately took action and released an official statement explaining what they did to prevent such attacks for now, which appear to affect all version of the Linux-based Android operating system, including the latest Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) release. "We’ve been in close touch with the researchers and, as always, we appreciate their efforts to help keep our users safer. We have updated Google Play Protect — our security services on all Android devices with Google Play — to detect and prevent the installation of these apps. Prior to this report, we had already built new security protections into Android O that will further strengthen our protection from these issues moving forward." Android security It's very likely that the next Android update to patch the exploit, but that might take a while considering how various Android versions are distributed, so it is better that you always check what apps are installed on your mobile device and what persmisions are enabled. For more details on how the new exploit works, check out the videos below, courtesy of Yanick Fratantonio, one of the researchers involved in this publication.

  23. See details this investigation: Ztorg: money for infecting your smartphone An eight-month-long investigation by Roman Unuchek, a security researcher at Kaspersky Lab, has uncovered one of the most complex malware distribution schemes seen to date on the Android malware scene. According to Unuchek, for the last year, the criminal group behind the Ztorg Android trojan has been using so-called "rewards apps," to deliver malware on the devices of unsuspecting users. These "rewards apps" are Android apps that provide money to users who install apps from their collection. A user using a rewards app usually earns a commission of a few US cents if he installs an app on his device. The more apps they install, the more money they earn, which they can then use to buy game coins or access to commercial apps. These apps are usually managed by advertising companies who get paid by app developers who want to make sure their app reaches as many devices as possible. Rewards apps are some of the few app types that allow everyone to get what they want. The user gets money, the app maker gets installs, and the advertiser gets his pay-per-install fee. Rewards apps delivered applications infected with Ztorg According to Unuchek, some of the rewards apps available through the Play Store have delivered apps installed with the Ztorg malware. The researcher says that not all apps delivered through rewards apps are infected with malware, but once in a while, these services push trojanized apps. Unuchek discovered this distribution method by accident, as he was initially looking at how the Ztorg malware was evolving, after he was the first one to spot the malware in September 2016, disguised as a Pokemon Go guide app. As he found new Android apps infected with Ztorg on the official Play Store, the researcher noticed that these apps were growing in popularity in huge increments, sometime doubling the number of installs overnight. One rewards app deletes malware offer and denies everything By some clever sleuthing, Unuchek tracked down the source of these installs to rewards apps such as Appcoins, SuperPocket, or Make money-Earn gift cards. The researcher says that when he contacted developers behind the Appcoins rewards app to inquire from where the advertising offer for the Ztorg-infected app came from, Appcoins devs "deleted the [app install] offer and answered [Unuchek] by saying there was no malware and that they had done nothing wrong." Certainly not the response the researcher was expecting, which raises plenty of questions about the intentions and professionalism of the people running these services. Three apps infected with Ztorg spotted each month Furthermore, the researcher found other interesting things. For example, Unuchek discovered some shared infrastructure between the Ztorg gang and the Gooligan Android malware, first spotted in November 2016. Furthermore, almost all Ztorg-infected Android apps spread through these rewards apps were registered by developers that used emails with Vietnamese names. "Every month after I started tracking this Trojan in September 2016 I was able to find and report at least three new infected apps on Google Play," Unuchek writes in the conclusion of his investigation. "The most recent apps that I found were uploaded in April 2017, but I’m sure there will be more soon." Apps infected with Ztorg are incredibly dangerous, because once the user launches this app into execution, the trojan uses rooting exploits to get admin privileges on the user's device. Until now, researchers spotted Ztorg using these admin privileges to show ads, but the malware could do much more harm if its authors ever desired. Article source

  25. Blancco Technology Group has just released a study on the State of Mobile Device Performance and Health, revealing that Android smartphones fail fewer times than Apple’s iPhone. The study shows that in the first quarter of 2017, Android smartphones recorded a failure rate of 50%. By contrast, iPhones had a failure rate of 68%, while during the previous quarter, 47% of Android devices experienced various failures, compared to 62% for iOS in the fourth quarter of 2016. The failure rate refers to “devices that had excessive performance issues that could not be resolved,” Blancco’s study reveals. The data was collected from millions of Android and iOS mobile devices that “were brought into mobile carriers and device manufacturers for diagnostics testing in North America, Europe and Asia during the first quarter of 2017.” Apps on iOS crash three times more than on Android The study reveals that applications running on iPhones have a tendency to crash almost three times more than on Android phones. The failure rate for crashing apps reaches 28% of all failures on iOS in the first quarter, while the rate is just 10% on Android smartphones. Facebook is among the apps that crash the most on iOS and Android. Android performance issues Other issues that affected iPhone users were overheating with a rate of 3%, together with GPS problems, 0.5%. By contrast, Android users complained about problems connected to weak carrier signal - 6%, as well as camera malfunctions - 3%. Among models with the highest failure rates, Blancco’s study identifies the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The former has a failure rate that increased from 3% in Q4 to 10% in the first quarter of this year, while the iPhone 7 Plus has a rate of 11% in Q1, higher than the 3% rate in Q4 2016. Samsung’s Galaxy S7 has the highest failure rate among Android-running phones included in the study, with 9%, and it’s followed by the Galaxy S7 edge with 8% and Galaxy S5 with 5%. It’s worth mentioning that these iPhone and Android models are among the highest selling on the market, which partially explains the high failure rates, considering that a large portion of people are actually using them. iOS performance issues Source
