  1. Google Begins Rolling Out Its Major Android Auto Redesign Google has started the official rollout of the Android Auto overhaul that the company announced earlier this year at the I/O 2019 event. At that point, the search giant said the refreshed Android Auto experience would go live in the summer, and albeit no specifics were provided, people familiar with the matter said the target was late June. By the looks of things, this information was accurate, as Google has now commenced the global rollout of the Android Auto redesign as part of version 4.4. However, it’s very important to note that the release takes place in stages and appears to be based on a server-side switch. In other words, not everyone is getting the overhauled Android Auto just by installing version 4.4, but users need to wait for Google to enable the update on its side.Not available for everyoneA discussion thread on redditindicates that the new AA is now available in the United Kingdom, albeit not everyone in the country seems to be getting it. There’s no clear pattern as to who receives the refreshed UI and who does not. I installed version 4.4.592344 on my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 but the overhauled AA experience isn’t yet available. Users who received the Android Auto redesign say they were asked to unplug and reconnect the phone to the car, with the new UI then showing up on their screens. The new AA version comes with a navigation bar whose functionality adapts to the running apps, and it can display buttons for controlling the media playback, navigation, and calls. The UI has been redesigned with a smaller status bar, and AA now features a notification center to display the call and message history. Source

  4. You might not have to wait for your carrier. Google's rollout of RCS chat to Android devices has been slow, and you can blame that partly on the carriers. As the next-gen texting format usually depends on networks adding support one at a time, compatibility has been patchy at best. Now, though, Google is ready to take matters into its own hands -- the internet giant will offer RCS services to Android users in the UK and France later in June, giving them an opt-in choice through the platform's Messages app. The company's Drew Rowny explained it to The Verge as a sort of peer-to-peer end run around the carrier-driven model. Rather than rely on a central server (as with Apple's iMessage), Android Messages quietly pings each participant in a chat to see if they support RCS. If they do, you get high-quality media, read receipts and other perks that come with the technology. Google does pass messages through its servers (though they're deleted as soon as they're delivered), but this is ultimately a decentralized approach that doesn't require carrier support or put full control in one party's hands -- it's the app that enables RCS. The weaknesses of RCS remain. It's not end-to-end encrypted, so it's viable for an intruder to read your messages. It's also tied to your phone number, so you don't have the iMessage-style ability to chat on non-phone devices. And when Google handles RCS, it'll need to temporarily retain attached files as well as data like the phone number and IMSI. The company said it was "committed to finding a solution" for secure chat, however, and texts won't disappear into a void if you switch to a phone that doesn't support RCS. This doesn't mean that Google has finally licked the RCS problem once and for all. It doesn't have a timetable for bringing the chat technology to other countries, and Apple hasn't shown interest in supporting RCS itself. The rollout beats waiting for providers to take action, mind you, and it might spur them to add RCS so that Google doesn't have too much power. Either way, your Android texts could become livelier in the near future. More At: [ The Verge ] Source
  5. One of the jobs of the Linux kernel—and all operating system kernels—is to manage the resources available to the system. When those resources get used up, what should it do? If the resource is RAM, there's not much choice. It's not feasible to take over the behavior of any piece of user software, understand what that software does, and make it more memory-efficient. Instead, the kernel has very little choice but to try to identify the software that is most responsible for using up the system's RAM and kill that process. The official kernel does this with its OOM (out-of-memory) killer. But, Linux descendants like Android want a little more—they want to perform a similar form of garbage collection, but while the system is still fully responsive. They want a low-memory killer that doesn't wait until the last possible moment to terminate an app. The unspoken assumption is that phone apps are not so likely to run crucial systems like heart-lung machines or nuclear fusion reactors, so one running process (more or less) doesn't really matter on an Android machine. A low-memory killer did exist in the Linux source tree until recently. It was removed, partly because of the overlap with the existing OOM code, and partly because the same functionality could be provided by a userspace process. And, one element of Linux kernel development is that if something can be done just as well in userspace, it should be done there. Sultan Alsawaf recently threw open his window, thrust his head out, and shouted, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take this anymore!" And, he re-implemented a low-memory killer for the Android kernel. He felt the userspace version was terrible and needed to be ditched. Among other things, he said, it killed too many processes and was too slow. He felt that the technical justification of migrating to the userspace dæmon had not been made clear, and an in-kernel solution was really the way to go. In Sultan's implementation, the algorithm was simple—if a memory request failed, then the process was killed—no fuss, no muss and no rough stuff. There was a unified wall of opposition to this patch. So much so that it became clear that Sultan's main purpose was not to submit the patch successfully, but to light a fire under the asses of the people maintaining the userspace version, in hopes that they might implement some of the improvements he wanted. Michal Hocko articulated his opposition to Sultan's patch very clearly—the Linux kernel would not have two separate OOM killers sitting side by side. The proper OOM killer would be implemented as well as could be, and any low-memory killers and other memory finaglers would have to exist in userspace for particular projects like Android. Suren Baghdasaryan also was certain that multiple OOM killers in the kernel source tree would be a non-starter. He invited Sultan to approach the problem from the standpoint of improving the user-space low-memory killer instead. There also were technical problems with Sultan's code. Michal felt it didn't have a broad enough scope and was really good only for a single very specific use case. And, Joel Fernandes agreed that Sultan's approach was too simple. Joel pointed out that "a transient temporary memory spike should not be a signal to kill _any_ process. The reaction to kill shouldn't be so spontaneous that unwanted tasks are killed because the system went into panic mode." Instead, he said, memory usage statistics needed to be averaged out so that a proper judgment of which process to kill could be made. So, the userspace version was indeed slow, but the slowness was by design, so the code could make subtle judgments about how to proceed. But Suren, on the other hand, agreed that the userspace code could be faster, and that the developers were working on ways to speed it up. In this way, the discussion gradually transitioned to addressing the deficiencies in the userspace implementation and finding ways to address them. To that extent, Sultan's code provided a benchmark for where the user code would like to be at some point in the future. It's not unheard of for a developer to implement a whole feature, just to make the point that an existing feature gets it wrong. And in this case, it does seem like that point has been heard. Source
  6. Shazam, the Apple-owned app that helps users identify songs playing around them, can now recognize songs you’re listening to through your headphones when using an Android phone or tablet. Acquired by Apple for $400 million last year, the company introduced a feature called ‘Pop-Up Shazam’ to its Android app recently, which when enabled, works with any other Android app to track and identify songs playing externally or internally on the phone. It’s a feature that many users have requested for years. Prior to this, when a user would chance upon a music track in say a YouTube video, they only had two inconvenient ways to shazam the song. They could either unplug the earphones from the phone and let the audio play through the built-in speakers, or draw an earpiece close to the mic of the phone. The new feature enables Shazam to track the audio signal beaming off of other apps, thereby not completely relying on just output from the surrounding and a phone’s speaker. The app is tapping the audio signal by using a persistent notification that floats around and could be dragged — like the ones from Facebook Messenger — and can be activated by a single tap. In our test, the feature worked as advertised through both wired and wireless earphones (amusingly, Apple’s AirPods) and on Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube apps. iPhone users hoping to use a similar feature will likely have to patiently wait as persistent notification isn’t something that Apple’s mobile operating system currently supports. Apple did integrate Shazam into Siri in 2014, so it is possible that it may someday explore ways to further expand songs recognition feature on its platform. Google has taken a shot at audio recognition in recent years, too, after it introduced a ‘Now Playing’ feature in its Pixel 3 series smartphone last year. If enabled, the phone actively looks for songs playing in the surrounding, identifies them and keeps a log. Source

  12. Microsoft Launcher for Android Could Get Lock Screen Customization Microsoft Launcher for Android could soon get lock screen customization options, according to a hint dropped by Microsoft itself on the UserVoice feedback platform. A post requesting “lockscreen personalization” has been marked as completed by Microsoft, and as per German site DrWindows, this is in most of the cases living proof that the software giant completed development of the feature and gets ready to include it in stable releases. “Changing content on the lockscreen would be amazing. Moving the clock to the bottom, making it bigger/smaller/ digital/analog? No problem, just do it!” the feature request posted in September 2018 reads. Microsoft marked the request as completed on May 14. While Microsoft has remained completely tight-lipped on such improvements for Microsoft Launcher, bringing lock screen customization to its Android launcher isn’t necessarily a difficult thing to do.Enter Next Lock ScreenAnd this is mostly because the Redmond-based tech giant has already released a lock screen customization app called Next Lock Screen, so there’s a chance that this project could be resurrected and integrated into Microsoft Launcher. Next Lock Screen allows users to customize their lock screens with a custom unlock method, more notification options, and a personalized app launcher. Furthermore, Next Lock Screen allowed the creation of shortcuts for phone features like flashlight, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and more, while also integrating a wallpaper changer and a weather widget with automatic updates. While this lock screen customization app has been more or less abandoned, some of its features would fit Microsoft Launcher like a glove, especially because they’re already available on the lock screen. MS Launcher, for instance, already comes with a weather widget and calendar support, a built-in wallpaper changer based on the Bing wallpaper of the day and more. It remains to be seen if lock screen customization is indeed something that makes its way to the stable version of the Microsoft Launcher, but all signs seem to be suggesting this is very likely to happen. The next major beta update could bring further evidence in this regard. Source
  13. Microsoft to Retire Microsoft Office Support for Older Android Versions Microsoft Office will no longer support older versions of Android as part of a silent Microsoft change that will put the focus on the latest releases. Specifically, Microsoft says its productivity suite would only run on the four latest versions of Android, which means that your device must be on Android Marshmallow or newer. Android KitKat and Lollipop will thus be abandoned, as Microsoft needs the improvements in the latest Android versions in order to provide users with more advanced capabilities in the productivity suite. In a support document, the software giant explains that the change will come into effect on July 1, which means that users have less than a month to upgrade their devices, if possible, to continue receiving updates for the Android version of Microsoft Office. “Android: Office for Android can be installed on tablets and phones running any of the supported versions of Android and have an ARM-based or Intel x86 processor. Starting on July 1, 2019, support will be limited to only the last 4 major versions of Android,” Microsoft says. “Product functionality and feature availability may vary on older systems. For the best experience, use the latest version of any operating system specified above.”Support for other operating systemsAs far as iOS is concerned, which is the main alternative to Android, Microsoft Office requires iOS 11 or later, as the productivity suite only supports the two most recent iOS releases. “When a new version of iOS is released, Office’s Operating System requirement becomes the then-current two most recent versions: the new version of iOS and the previous version,” Microsoft says. Redmond doesn’t say anything about support for Windows 10 Mobile, but with the platform altogether going dark in December, the productivity suite is expected to be retired on Microsoft’s own mobile operating system anytime soon.

  14. Tor Browser for Android Officially Launched Tor Project has just announced the release of the very first stable version of Tor Browser for Android after the public preview build that landed in the fall of 2018. The Android version of TOR Browser is based on the same approach as the original desktop sibling, and it’s supposed to block trackers, keep users protected against surveillance, resist fingerprinting, and maintain a high level of privacy using advanced systems like multi-layered encryption. “When you use Tor Browser for Android, your traffic is relayed and encrypted three times as it passes over the Tor network. The network is comprised of thousands of volunteer-run servers known as Tor relays,” Tor Project explains. The interface is as simple as it could be, and while features like the ones you typically find in browsers from Google and Mozilla are missing, it’s important to keep in mind that the purpose of Tor Browser is to keep your privacy untouched when browsing the web, regardless of website. The application is obviously available free of charge on Android, and it requires at least version 4.1 of the mobile operating system.More features to comeNeedless to say, because this is just the very first stable version of Tor Browser for Android, some features available on the desktop are yet to make their way to smartphones, albeit the development team promises fast progress in this regard. “While there are still feature gaps between the desktop and Android Tor Browser, we are confident that Tor Browser for Android provides essentially the same protections that can be found on desktop platforms,” a blog post that went live this morning reads. Tor Browser for mobile devices is exclusive to Android, and iOS version won’t be released. This is because of the iOS restrictions set by Apple on the platform. Source
  15. Fenix, which is a codename, is a new browser for Android by Mozilla that will replace the current Firefox web browser for Android eventually. Fenix is open source and interested users may follow development on the project's GitHub website. Firefox users interested in the new browser could not get it from Google Play up until now; this changed recently with the release of a preview version of the browser called Firefox Preview. Designed for beta testing and feedback, it is available to all Google Play users who sign up to participate in the testing. Firefox Preview is based on Mozilla's Android Components and GeckoView. The preview version is considered beta; it lacks some features that Mozilla wants to implement before the final release. Users should expect bugs in the preview of Firefox for Android, and Mozilla expects them to report these bugs so that they may be fixed before the final release. The release version of the new browser won't support all features of the current Firefox browser for Android. Extensions support is planned but won't be supported in early stable versions of the browser. Mozilla aims for an end of June release. Firefox users who want to test the mobile browser right now can do so right now by following these steps: Visit the following Mozilla website: https://events.mozilla.org/becomeabetatestingbughunter Join the Beta Testing Program on the site. Join the Firefox Fenix Nightly group on Google Groups: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/fenix-nightly Opt-in on Google Play to receive test builds of the mobile browser: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/org.mozilla.fenix Download the Firefox Preview browser from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mozilla.fenix The steps, with the exception of the last, won't be necessary anymore once Mozilla publishes a final version of the browser. Here are a couple of screenshots of the new browser: Firefox Preview will receive automatic updates after installation. Whether that is purely automated depends on the Play Store settings. The default setting updates applications automatically when the Android device is connected to a wireless network. You can switch that to any network or don't update automatically in the Google Play Store settings.

    The future of Firefox for Android

    Mozilla is working on a new mobile browser for Android called Fenix. The new browser is available as a development build currently. The current Firefox for Android is also available but Mozilla focuses development resources on the new Fenix browser; that's the main reason why recent Firefox for Android releases look more like extended support releases that fix bugs but don't introduce a whole lot of new features in the browser. While it was clear for some time that Mozilla planed to replace the current Firefox for Android with the new Fenix browser, it was unclear how all of that would happen. Questions that we had no answers for included for how long the legacy Firefox for Android would be supported, when we could expect a first stable release of Fenix, and how Mozilla planed to migrate users from the old mobile browser to the new. Firefox for Android future A recently published support document highlights Mozilla's plans for the current Firefox for Android and also Fenix. Mozilla's main idea is to maintain the legacy version of Firefox for Android until Fenix reaches migration readiness status. Firefox users on Android should be able to use the legacy version until Fenix is ready while Mozilla wants to minimize support costs. To achieve that goal, Firefox for Android will move to the ESR branch after the release of Firefox 68. In other words: there won't be a Firefox 69 for Android that is based on the legacy version as it will use ESR versioning instead. Timeline for legacy Firefox for Android May 14, 2019: release of Firefox 67 for Android July 9, 2019: release of Firefox 68 for Android September 3, 2019: release of Firefox 68.1 for Android (move to ESR channel) October 22, 2019: release of Firefox 68.2 for Android December 10, 2019: release of Firefox 68.3 for Android The legacy version of Firefox for Android won't receive new feature updates anymore when it moves to the ESR channel. The browser won't receive support for new web technologies anymore, nor will it receive any other feature updates. Bug fixes and security updates will be provided. The releases will follow the Firefox desktop release schedule. Mozilla has not specified a support end for the browser. It seems likely that the browser will reach end of support before mid 2020; Support ends when Fenix is ready and users of the legacy version of Firefox for Android can be migrated to the new mobile browser. Mozilla wants to make it clear that the move to ESR won't give the browser the Enterprise attribute. The main reason why the legacy browser is moved to ESR is that it allows Mozilla to maintain it with minimal effort while work on Fenix continues. The ESR version reaches end of life after Fenix is deemed migration ready by Mozilla. Source: The future of Firefox for Android (gHacks - Martin Brinkmann)
  18. LastPass launched a new feature in the mobile versions of the password manager LastPass today that allows customers to recover their account under certain circumstances. Password managers help users when it comes to password use on the Internet. They provide users with tools to create and use unique passwords everywhere. The database is usually protected by a master password that the user needs to enter to decrypt the password database and access stored passwords and other information. Password managers may support other authentication options. KeePass, a popular free password manager supports key files or Windows user accounts. Users who forget the master password are in a precarious situation as it is the only option to unlock the database unless recovery options are available. LastPass Mobile Account Recovery LastPass launched a new feature called LastPass Mobile Account Recovery today that introduces an option to recovery a LastPass account in case the master password is not accepted anymore by the service. The feature is only available in the mobile LastPass applications for Android and iOS. Mobile account recovery requires a mobile device with fingerprint or Face ID authentication support. Basically, what it does is unlock an option to recover a LastPass account using the authentication method. While LastPass makes no mention how the feature works, it appears that it links biometric authentication to the LastPass account so that users of the service may reset the master password using it. It should be clear that LastPass users need to configure the feature before it becomes available. The company notes that the account recovery feature is device-specific. If you want it to be available on all devices, you need to enable it on all of them. If you are using LastPass on an Android device, you need to configure fingerprint authentication first; if you use it on an iOS device, you need to set up Face ID instead. Setup is identical afterwards: sign in to the LastPass application on the mobile device. LastPass should display a notification about the new account recovery option; if it does not, go to Menu > Settings > Security and enable the unlock feature (called Use Fingerprint to Unlock on Android, and Use Face ID on iOS), and toggle the account recovery feature afterward. Here is a video by LastPass that demonstrates the feature. If you need to reset your LastPass master password, select "forgot password" when you get to the login screen. From there, select "Recovery with Fingerprint" or "Recovery with Face ID" and authenticate using the biometric authentication option. LastPass will prompt you for a new master password that you may enter directly. You may also add a password hint. The selection of "set master password" completes the process. Closing Words LastPass recommends that customers enable the new account recovery option on their mobile devices even if they only use the desktop version of the password manager. The new option is certainly helpful in restoring an account if the master password cannot be remembered; users should take note, however, that it could also open up a new option for third-parties to gain unauthorized access to the account through coercion. Cautious users might want to stick to using the password hint option as the only resort when it comes to account recovery.

  20. PreAmo adware affects 90 million Android devices in new ad-fraud campaign Six fake apps claiming to boost the functionalities of smartphones are being used to distribute adware named ‘PreAmo’. The campaign is used to make money out of three ad agencies, namely Presage, Admob and Mopub. A fraudulent ad-clicking campaign has been found infecting 90 million Android mobiles worldwide to generate revenues. Six fake apps claiming to boost the performance of smartphones are being used to distribute adware named ‘PreAmo’. These apps have recorded to have a total of 90 million installations worldwide. What’s the purpose - According to researchers at Check Point, the campaign is used to make money out of three ad agencies, namely Presage, Admob and Mopub. What are the six fake apps - The six fraudulent packages that are pushed in the form of apps are: com.pic.mycamera – 57 million installations com.omni.cleaner – 48 million installations com.speedbooster.optimizer – 24 million installations com.rambooster.totalcleaner – 15 million installations com.cooler.smartcooler – 12 million installations com.flashlight.torch.screenlight.party – 3.4 million installations What’s new about ‘PreAmo’ - PreAmo features three unique code snippets that deal with the three ad agencies. Although the malware is not connected in terms of code, it was discovered that these three code snippets use the same res.mnexuscdn[.]com C2 server to send statistics and receive configuration. Apart from this, the three code snippets work in a similar manner: They register a listener on a banner being loaded by the ad network; Once the banner is loaded, ‘PreAmo’ uses the functionality of Android’s framework class ‘MotionEvent’ to imitate a click. How to stay safe - In order to avoid falling victim to such fraudulent ad campaigns, users should Install applications from the official app store; Always check the rating, comments and download count of an application before installing; Install a security solution from a well-known vendor; Always check links before sharing personal information.

  21. Google gives Android users in Europe more search, browser options To comply with a European Commission ruling, Android users in Europe will be presented with new screens offering alternatives to Chrome and Google Search. Google on Thursday outlined how it plans to give Android users in Europe more search app and browser options, in order to comply with a European Commission anti-trust ruling against it. Back in July 2018, the European Commission hit Google with a record €4.34 billion fine for its restrictions on Android device makers and network operators, charging the restrictions were meant to "cement its dominant position in general internet search." Google appealed the fine in October but a week later announced steps it would take to comply with the ruling. Then in March, the company announced it would offer more search and browser options for Android users in Europe. In a blog post Thursday, Google product manager Paul Gennai explained how it would do so: Over the next few weeks, Google will start rolling out new screens that will pop up the first time a European Android user opens Google Play after receiving an incoming update. One screen will present five options for search apps, and one screen will present five options for browsers. The lists will include any search apps or browsers that are already installed. Apps that aren't installed will be chosen based on their popularity and shown in a random order. The new screens will show up on both new and existing Android phones in Europe. If a user does choose to download any new search apps or browsers, Google will then help the user set them up. If a user downloads a search app from the screen, Google will also ask them whether they want to change Chrome's default search engine the next time they open Chrome. Meanwhile, the European Commission last month fined Google yet again, this time hitting the company with a €1.49 billion fine over contracts with third-party websites that locked out rivals from placing search ads on these sites.

  22. Google this week made it easier for Android users to enable strong 2-factor authentication (2FA) when logging into Google’s various services. The company announced that all phones running Android 7.0 and higher can now be used as Security Keys, an additional authentication layer that helps thwart phishing sites and password theft. As first disclosed by KrebsOnSecurity last summer, Google maintains it has not had any of its 85,000+ employees successfully phished on their work-related accounts since early 2017, when it began requiring all employees to use physical Security Keys in place of passwords and one-time codes. The most commonly used Security Keys are inexpensive USB-based devices that offer an alternative approach to 2FA, which requires the user to log in to a Web site using something they know (the password) and something they have (e.g. a one-time token, key fob or mobile device). But Google said starting this week, any mobile phone running Android 7.0+ (Nougat) can serve the same function as a USB-based security key. Once a user has enrolled their Android phone as a Security Key, the user will need to approve logins via a prompt sent to their phone after submitting their username and password at a Google login page. Many readers have expressed confusion or skepticism about how Security Keys can prevent users from getting hooked by phishing sites or clever man-in-the-middle attacks. This capability was described in far greater visual detail in this video last year by Christiaan Brand, product manager at Google Cloud. But the short version is that even if a user who has enrolled a Security Key for authentication tries to log in at a site pretending to be Google, the company’s systems simply refuse to request the Security Key if the user isn’t on an official Google site, and the login attempt fails. “It puts you in this mode….[in] which is there is no other way to log in apart from the Security Key,” Brand said. “No one can trick you into a downgrade attack, no one can trick you into anything different. You need to provide a security key or you don’t get into your account.” Google says built-in security keys are available on phones running Android 7.0+ (Nougat) with Google Play Services, enabling existing phones to act as users’ primary 2FA method for work (G Suite, Cloud Identity, and GCP) and personal Google accounts to sign in on a Bluetooth-enabled Chrome OS, macOS X, or Windows 10 device with a Chrome browser. The basic idea behind two-factor authentication (Google calls it “two step verification” or 2SV) is that even if thieves manage to phish or steal your password, they still cannot log in to your account unless they also hack or possess that second factor. The most common forms of 2FA require the user to supplement a password with a one-time code sent to their mobile device via an app (like Authy or Google Authenticator), text message, or an automated phone call. But all of these methods are susceptible to interception by various attacks. For example, thieves can intercept that one-time code by tricking your mobile provider into either swapping your mobile device’s SIM card or “porting” your mobile number to a different device. A Security Key implements a form of multi-factor authentication known as Universal 2nd Factor (U2F), which allows the user to complete the login process simply by inserting the USB device and pressing a button on the device. The key works without the need for any special software drivers. Probably the most popular maker of Security Keys is Yubico, which sells a basic U2F key for $20 (it offers regular USB versions as well as those made for devices that require USB-C connections, such as Apple’s newer Mac OS systems). Yubikey also sells more expensive U2F keys designed to work with mobile devices. A number of high-profile sites now allow users to enroll their accounts with USB- or Bluetooth-based Security Keys, including Dropbox, Facebook, Github and Twitter. If you decide to use Security Keys with your account, it’s a good idea to register a backup key and keep it in a safe place, so you can still get into your account if you loose your initial key (or phone, in Google’s case). To be sure you’re using the most robust forms of authentication at sites you entrust with sensitive data, spend a few minutes reviewing the options at twofactorauth.org, which maintains probably the most comprehensive list of which sites support 2FA, indexing each by type of site (email, gaming, finance, etc) and the type of 2FA offered (SMS, phone call, software token, etc.). Please bear in mind that if the only 2FA options offered by a site you frequent are SMS and/or phone calls, this is still better than simply relying on a password to secure your account. I should also note that Google says Android 7.0+ phones also can be used as the Security Key for people who have adopted the company’s super-paranoid Advanced Protection option. This is a far more stringent authentication process for Google properties designed specifically for users who are most likely to be targeted by sophisticated attacks, such as journalists, activists, business leaders and political campaigns. I’ve had Advanced Protection turned on since shortly after Google made it available. It wasn’t terribly difficult to set up, but it’s probably not for your casual user. For one thing, it requires users to enroll two security keys, and in the event the user loses both of those keys, Google may take days to validate your request and grant you access to your account.

  23. Google Releases Android Security Patch for April 2019 with 89 Security Fixes Google released the Android Security Patch for April 2019 in an attempt to further improve the overall security and stability of Android devices. Android Security Patch for April 2019 consists of the 2019-04-01 and 2019-04-05 security patch levels, which address a total of 89 vulnerabilities across several components, including the Android framework, Media framework, Android system, and Qualcomm components. The most sever of them all could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code by using a malicious file. “The most severe of these issues is a critical security vulnerability in Media framework that could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process. The severity assessment is based on the effect that exploiting the vulnerability would possibly have on an affected device,” reads the security bulletin.Improvements for Pixel devices In addition to patching security flaws, the Android Security Patch for April 2019 update also improves the performance and reliability of supported Pixel devices. For Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL users, it improves the voice-unlocking performance for Google Assistant and the Wi-Fi connectivity during eSIM activation for some mobile carriers. For some Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices, the update removes the screen flash when ambient display wakes. On the other hand, Pixel and Pixel XL users will notice better Bluetooth connectivity after installing the Android Security Patch for April 2019, which is now rolling out worldwide and will complete in the next few days. It is recommended that you update your Android devices to Android Security Patch for April 2019 as soon as possible. To update, simply access the system updates section in the settings of your device. If you don’t see the update yet, try again in a few hours or days. Android Security Patch for April 2019 is available now for all Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL users. Source
  24. Android banking trojan ‘Gustuff’ targets over 100 banking apps and 32 cryptocurrency apps Gustuff Android banking trojan uses social engineering techniques to trick device owners into giving access to the Android Accessibility service. Instead of phishing banking account credentials and then stealing funds, this ATS service allows the trojan to directly make fund transfers from the infected user’s device. A new Android banking trojan dubbed ‘Gustuff’ is gaining momentum by Android users in recent months. Why it matters - This trojan is capable of phishing credentials and stealing funds from over 100 banking apps and 32 cryptocurrency apps. Who are its targets? Gustuff has the ability to target international banks such as Bank of America, Bank of Scotland, J.P.Morgan, Wells Fargo, Capital One, TD Bank, and PNC Bank. The Android banking trojan can also target cryptocurrency apps such as BitPay, Cryptopay, Coinbase, and Bitcoin Wallet. It can also steal credentials from various Android payment apps and messaging apps such as PayPal, Western Union, eBay, Walmart, Skype, WhatsApp, Gett Taxi, Revolut, and more. What are its capabilities? This trojan can disable Google Play Protect security feature of the Google Play Store. Gustuff can collect data such as documents, photos, and videos from infected apps. It has the ability to reset an Android device to factory settings. Besides, this Android banking trojan is capable of displaying custom push notifications disguised as an app. Upon clicking the notification, it either opens a webpage containing a phishing form that asks for credentials or opens a legitimate app, where the trojan auto-fills transaction forms and auto-approves fund transfers via the Accessibility service. How does it exploit the Android Accessibility service Researchers from Group-IB cybersecurity firm noted that the Gustuff Android banking trojan uses social engineering techniques to trick device owners into giving access to the Android Accessibility service. Accessibility service is for users with disabilities and it can automate various UI interactions and tap screen items on users’ behalf. Gustuff trojan exploits this service and runs Automatic Transfer Service (ATS). Instead of stealing banking account credentials and then stealing funds, this ATS service allows the trojan to directly make fund transfers from the infected user’s device. Using the Android Accessibility service, Gustuff implements an ATS system on the user’s device. The ATS implemented on the user’s device will open the apps and fills in the required details and credentials. It then auto-approves the fund transfer on its own. “Gustuff's unique feature is that it is capable of performing ATS with the help of the Accessibility Service. The fact that Gustuff uses [an] ATS makes it even more advanced than Anubis and RedAlert,” Rustam Mirkasymov, Head of Dynamic Analysis of Malware Department at Group-IB told ZDNet. Worth noting Group-IB researchers noted that Gustuff was never deployed inside apps that are available for download in the Google Play Store. The only way attackers distribute Gustuff is via SMS spam message that includes links to the trojan’s APK installation file. Source
  25. Google Will Let Android Users Choose Their Browser Out of the Box Google has announced a series of changes for Android users in Europe in response to the latest antitrust concerns raised by the European Commission. Users will be allowed to choose what browser and search engine they want to use on Android out of the box. Currently, Android devices come with Google Chrome pre-installed and Google set as the default search engine, but in the near future, this is all going to change, Google says. While details on the browsers that would be offered to users haven’t been provided, today’s announcement is clearly good news for other browser developers, like Mozilla.Change possibly coming later this yearAt the same time, Microsoft is likely to significantly benefit from this change, as the company has launched an Android version of Microsoft Edge browser and is also the owner of Bing, the main alternative to Google search. “Now we’ll also do more to ensure that Android phone owners know about the wide choice of browsers and search engines available to download to their phones. This will involve asking users of existing and new Android devices in Europe which browser and search apps they would like to use,” Kent Walker, SVP of Global Affairs, explains. There are no specifics as to when this change is going to take place for Android, but Google says both new and existing users will be asked to choose their preferred browser and search engine. Google is the second tech giant to provide users with a choice of browsers out of the box after Microsoft was forced by the European Commission to do the same in Windows. Internet Explorerwas pre-installed in all versions of Windows, but following this decision, European users were also allowed to set other browsers as default when running the operating system the first time.
