A new vulnerability makes Android-smartphone in the “vegetable” – BBC News

In a mobile “OSes” Google found the second week a critical vulnerability. It allows hackers to place the device, in fact, in a vegetative state. Having caught, Android-smartphone becomes silent and stop responding to user commands.

According to experts from the company Trend Micro, “hole” is contained in a component that is responsible for processing a multimedia container Matroska (MKV). Attackers can exploit this vulnerability in two ways: through an application with malicious code placed in a distorted MKV-file or Web page, which is built specially crafted MKV-video.

“The first method may cause long-term consequences for the device : an application with built-in MKV-file runs automatically, resulting in a ‘flight’ operating system each time the device is switched on, “- said the expert. On Android-smartphone, turn off all sounds and ringtones, and calls can not be accepted or rejected. Moreover, if the device is locked, it is impossible to unlock.

The effects caused by infection through the Web page, reversible: to restore the gadget to its normal state, it must be restarted. According to experts, the vulnerability affects all versions of Android since 4.3 (Jelly Bean), including the newest, 5.1.1 (Lollipop). According to statistics from Google Play in June, is more than half of all Android-devices in the world.

A few days ago in the Android found another “extremely dangerous” mistake, which is subject to a billion gadgets. It allows attackers to gain control over the device by sending a “bad” MMS-message with an attached image or melody. At the same time the victim is not required to take any action – the user only has to read “ememesku” to catch.

Scientists have found a gap in the Android OS on a billion smartphones – Interfax

Moscow. On 30 July. INTERFAX.RU – Experts of the American company Zimperium discovered a vulnerability in the operating system Android, which allows hackers to easily gain access to about a billion smart phones using this OS, reports Deutsche Welle.

To infect a smartphone hackers need to know the phone number of the owner. This number is through messenger Hangouts or MMS multimedia message is sent a video clip containing malicious code. In Zimperium claim that is not necessarily the owner of the phone even open a message – then infected smartphone happens automatically.

The source of vulnerability is the basic tool of the Android system to play multimedia files called Stagefright, he said in an interview with Forbes specialist company Zimperium Joshua Drake.

The problem – in the basic principle Stagefright, automatically loads attached to incoming messages videos. From the actions of the user there is already little depends. Moreover, the malware got into the smartphone can then delete all incoming message from the “Inbox”.

Through got phone code of the attacker can gain control over those parts of the system, which has access Stagefright: store audio and video, pictures, a wireless Bluetooth connection to the phone. Chance of and access to other units of the smartphone, including a camera and a microphone.

How to tell the experts Zimperium, vulnerability, they opened in April of this year and immediately informed the manufacturer of Android, to Google. The Google reacted quickly: the company immediately sent out protection against malicious virus maker of smartphones on Android.

The spread of “patches” to the operating system or newer versions for specific brands of smartphones – quite a long process, and monitoring of Forbes yet “no smartphone manufacturers in the Android system update is not distributed to the underlying vulnerability.” This means that out of danger right now there are only very old devices with system version lower than 2.2.

In Google urged not to dramatize the event and noted that in April, known cases of infection through the vulnerability was not, but the way things are today, – is unknown.

Android smartphone owners to recommended settings SMS-application to disable automatic downloading of MMS-messages and, if possible, not to use the messenger Hangouts. Detailed information on the fight against vulnerability is expected in early August on a dedicated developer conference in Las Vegas.

According to IDC, more than 80% of smartphones worldwide run on OS Android.

ICQ has found differences between the users of iOS and Android – Ferra

The team messenger ICQ figured out how to use the messenger owners of iPhone and Android-smartphone: what devices pose ICQ, any wallpaper and stickers choose how often the call by video link. Differences between iOS and Android users were more than similarities.


The most popular iOS-smartphone among users of ICQ has become iPhone 5s. The second and third positions were placed iPhone 4s and iPhone 6. ICQ users on Android smartphones Samsung fans turned out line Galaxy: often they use Samsung Galaxy S3, in second place Samsung Galaxy S4. Troika closes Motorola Moto G XT1033 Claro Dual.

In the matter of choice stickers owners iOS- and Android-devices in solidarity: the most popular stickers appeared on a romantic theme. At the same time with the iOS-devices often send sticker with a kiss, and Android users prefer bouquets.

As in a “camp”, and in other wallpaper default left a few percent of users: it speaks of the importance of the visual registration of messenger. But the sources for the new wallpapers are markedly different. Android users have a big “individualists” – they are more likely to choose a new background from your own photo galleries, than the owners of the iPhone and iPad (16% versus 2%). The rest use the library of backgrounds that offers ICQ.

To make a call Android- and iOS-ICQ users could be coming in different ways. Owners of iOS-devices with approximately equal frequency call for voice and video (52% and 48%, respectively). In turn, the Android users 62% prefer to see the interlocutor; to voice calls, they use significantly less (38%).

Most of the calls made through ICQ Wi-Fi. Android users a little more often users iOS (28% vs. 23%) call through 3G. But the owners of smartphones with iOS is more than recoup the expense of LTE: they are three times more likely to use to communicate the new generation network.

MMS-affected vulnerable billion Android-smartphone – BBC News

Security experts have discovered in the mobile operating system Android “extremely dangerous” error associated with the Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). It allows attackers to gain control over the device by sending a “bad” MMS-message with an attached image or melody.

The vulnerability is about a billion Android-smartphone, the experts warned us Zimpherium, calling them found a “hole” in the platform Google one of the most dangerous to date. Internet search engines have issued a “patch”, but millions of devices around the world (even new ones) using the version of Android 2.2 or higher, are still vulnerable.

The most rapid update got smart phones and tablets in a series of Nexus who work on “pure” Android and receive updates directly from Google. Nevertheless, the overwhelming majority of manufacturers and mobile operators updated its own devices, and the time depends on the model and regions. If you receive notification of available updates on your Android-device, it is recommended to install as soon as possible.

The flaw in the security system Android allows an attacker to put a message to any MMS-malicious code that activates the service Stagefright, built-in . At the same time the victim is not required to take any action – the user only has to read “ememesku” to catch.

After the service Stagefright running, the hacker can “get access to all content on the device and its resources, such as the camera,” he said. For more information about the vulnerability will be unveiled at the conference Black Hat, which will be held in Las Vegas next week.

Through MMS was possible to break almost any Android-smartphone – N + 1

Image: Zimperium zLabs

The company Zimperium, specializing in information security of mobile devices, has published a report according to which 95 percent of all devices running the Android operating system vulnerable to a critical vulnerability in a library Stagefright

Experts Zimperium zLabs already called this the biggest vulnerability of all in the history of the platform Android. At the same time, in order to exploit the vulnerability in the library Stagefright, only need to know the phone number of the victim and simply send the unit a special MMS-message. According to experts, then an attacker could take complete control of the device without any action by the user. The company estimates that vulnerability affects about 950 million units, with the greatest risk are the owners of gadgets running Android version Jelly Bean.

Zimperium reported vulnerabilities in Google, and even provided a patch, then Android Security Team I add them to the versions of the OS distributions. However, experts say zLabs, such updates will apply only to devices manufactured by Google, because most of the other companies that manufacture mobile devices for Android, use their own operating system modifications. Thus it is not possible to predict the timing to eliminate the vulnerability for all smartphones and tablets running Android.

More information about the vulnerability will be presented by experts Zimperium zLabs at conferences on information security Black Hat USA and DEF CON 23 which will be held 5 and 7 August, respectively.

A billion smartphones in danger – BBC

Discovered by researchers vulnerability threatens almost all owners of devices on Android. The number of potentially contaminated smartphones and tablets could exceed one billion.

Experts have called this vulnerability the most serious in the history of the operating system, because it is potentially available to 95% of all devices Android. This particular device for breaking attackers enough to have a phone number of the victim. They are sent via MMS video which carries the harmful code. Since the vulnerability is in the normal Android tool for playback of multimedia files called Stagefright, attackers when playing videos are able to infiltrate into the system.

It is noteworthy that with the English «stage fright» translates as “stage fright».

Starting with Android 4.1 Google has added the so-called sandbox, which are carried out completely all the processes including the work of system applications. This was done to prevent the impact of applications on the system files, but with the help of this vulnerability is now virus may still leave the “sandbox.” The only not subject to this vulnerability devices on Android – is the system of smart phones version 2.2 and below. However, in April of smartphones it was only 0.4% of all employed.

To find out the problem was a specialist company Zimperium zLabs Joshua Drake. According to him (their causes Forbes ), their discovery experts informed Google in April this year and the company has already sent to all producers the necessary corrections in the source code. But Drake was confident that few manufacturers applied these fixes in their firmware.

According to his estimates, today there are about 950 million devices on Android, which can infect the way.

Details of the vulnerability Zimperium plans to open at BlackHat 2015 that will take place in the first days of August in Las Vegas. The main danger lies in the hole that the victim does not even know about the infection: the virus immediately removes the smartphone received MMS-message, and the user does not see it. Moreover, some smartphones virus does not appear in the pop-up notification, and instant thus the system is totally unnoticed.

Some smartphones, such as Samsung Galaxy S4, the thus obtained virus gets the same level of access to the software that processes and systems that could allow an attacker to have almost complete control over the device.

However, in general, according to Drake, the consequences from breaking is not so serious: many smartphones with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and more viruses, access the system through Stagefright, do not have the same rights as system applications . But this is enough for them to the attacker was able to get the data from your smartphone victim.

In particular, Drake said that the Nexus 6, the latest version of the software is protected from viruses that spread on such a scheme, but it is not all: patches for some of them just do not have time to Google add to the system. In turn, in HTC announced that the delivery of appropriate corrections began in July.

However, it is understood that not all manufacturers Android smartphone will be able to immediately prepare an update for their devices.

In order to understand: Android 5.0 Lollipop, published in November 2014, is now installed only on 12% of all devices on the system . It’s not that people do not want to put it, but that manufacturers still do not release an update for smartphones.

One of the ways of self-deliverance from potential threats is to obtain a root-rights and manually disable or delete Stagefright. In this case, the malicious code will not be able to start. Moreover, SMS-configured application can disable the automatic loading of MMS-messages. However, these temporary solutions and also limit the functionality of your smartphone. For this reason, a patch that blocks the ability to run Virus through Stagefright, should be installed as soon as possible.

The multimedia engine for Android found a potential security threat: Gadgets: Science and Technology: Lenta.ru – Lenta.ru

contained in the multimedia engine Stagefright vulnerabilities pose a potential threat to most smartphones on Android. This was to find a breach of information security professionals from the team reported Zimperium publication Forbes.

According to the report Zimperium, were found seven vulnerabilities that allow remote hack up to 95 percent of the phones Android. To do this, attackers need to know the telephone number of the victim and to send him a picture message (MMS). As stated by the experts, the success does not require the user to read the message and the attached file is launched – enough to MMS was made smartphone.

Victor Chebyshev, head of research of mobile threats “Kaspersky Lab”, confirmed “Feed .Ru “the danger of such holes in the OS ‘potential vulnerabilities allow execution of arbitrary code on the device from a privileged application or service (in this case Stagefright), very dangerous. This is especially true of the operating system Android, because it is physically impossible to fix promptly inform all affected devices. ” He added that in principle there is no guarantee of creating smartphone manufacturers fixes.

At the same time the effects of the operation of such vulnerabilities only depend on the intentions of virus writers, Chebyshev added: “It may just steal the information you need, and can take root in the device to for a long time to collect personal data and perform various actions. For example, to send SMS to premium numbers ».

According to experts Zimperium, on some old crackers smartphones will have full access with administrative rights. In other cases, the vulnerability could allow them access to the microphone and camera, allowing you to monitor the victim.

The team sent to Google the necessary patches to fix bugs. They were sent in April and early May 2015. The Google patches installed in the current version of Android, which is then sent out to companies manufacturing devices. But as manufacturers slowly release a firmware update, 95 percent of smartphones remain vulnerable to attacks. However, the necessary updates have been installed in the Google Nexus smartphone and 6 Blackphone company Silent Circle. It is also not subject to attack devices using older versions of Android (up to 2.2).

In addition, the vulnerability of affected browser Mozilla Firefox (versions for Android, Windows and Mac), and the operating system Firefox OS, because they used a version Stagefright. The patch is added to them in the May update.

The experts promised to elaborate on the gaps found in the Black Hat Security Conference on August 5.

Arbour №48: about Samsung and transition to Tizen instead of Android | android.mobile-review.com – first – Mobile-review.com – Mobile-review

Back in June last year and remember the excitement in the network in connection with the release of the smartphone Samsung Z-based Tizen. In today’s Pavilion your attention is invited to the view that if Android will end its existence if it refuses from the largest producer and seller of equipment, whose contribution to the development of the OS quite a weight.

 1-aTGiG-CQ2t70xLannaCCYg

The desire to escape from the Samsung Google ecosystem within your operating system on their devices no longer a secret. First, Tizen appears in some of the cells. Then, Android «made way» Tizen hours Galaxy Gear 2. This is followed by the announcement of an update for first-generation Gear, which marks the transition back to the Tizen on Android. And to top it all advertised Samsung Z, positioned as a premium smart phone is the first phone company based Tizen. Like this. Samsung laid the foundation for the transition from the Android Tizen.

 1-LD36ZRPkISQwjBoK2AVUmQ

You, as a user, will not notice any difference between the machines in part visual component. Samsung has been able to prove their ability to maintain the appearance of Android (rather, his version of Android), and Tizen – a clear confirmation. We need to try hard to find significant differences. Whatever it was, we do not have a developed Tizen ecosystem. It will be a significant stumbling block in the process of convincing developers to create products for the unpopular OS. Still, the launch can give support to Android-platform applications.

Samsung is slowly but surely trying to slip out of the “iron grip» Google. It said the phone is a kind of beta tests performed for the understanding of the consumers’ perception of the OS Tizen. The path to complete the transition to Android is still a long. “The iron hand» Google does not facilitate this process.

Here are some excerpts from the said material. Samsung can not make any promises developers who rely entirely on Google. Any rumors about the failure of the Samsung Android will be premature, because is not available any information about the issuance of the appropriate licenses or the creation of API «cloud” messenger. The reason for this may become inaccessible in the event of API Google “migration» Samsung to Tizen. Also, in case of such a step, like a public demonstration hostile attitude to the Samsung Android, the company permanently excluded from the Open Handset Alliance. Of course, if Samsung wants to go back to Android, it will be possible with the fork, but, again, this was prevented by lack of access to services API and Google, as well, therefore, to the whole ecosystem of applications. So, if the transition is made, the back will not return.

 1-8Nw1gKMQzBslN8fRU8ZXQg

If we consider the unlikely scenario that Samsung will be able to create a successful system applications and switch completely to Tizen, it can be concluded that this would not mean the decline of Android. Some believe that Samsung is one of the pillars of the operating system, and if it is not in the ecosystem of Android, the operating system will collapse. This is not true. At least, not until the end.

Yes, Samsung produces the most commercially successful devices based on Android, and some users believe that the Samsung = Android, as well as PC = Windows. The impact on Samsung Android significantly, so failure would be a blow for the latter. This is the most say. But this does not mean that Android will be destroyed. OS is restored, Samsung takes place other manufacturer capable of producing smart phones are better than Samsung, for example, HTC, Android, and its evolution will continue at the same rate. We must not forget that the world Android is very, very broad and is not limited to Samsung, even successful, but only a milestone on the way. On the market – millions of devices on Android, and Samsung share is not so big.

In a cheap price segment alone leads Android, iOS the same is not present, and Windows Phone can not cope with the competition. Here is dominated by players such as Motorola, at the time, as Samsung does not have many sales in this range. Then comes the mid-price segment, where the situation is similar, except in the face of competitors Motorola devices range Nexus, offering high-end characteristics of the average cost. Control Samsung has the top-end segment, but is now back in full view of HTC, LG and Sony.

History-of-the-Samsung-Galaxy-S-Series-Infographic

The success of Samsung is due to the success of the first device in the line of Galaxy, which became the first full-fledged competitor iPhone. Galaxy S2 was the work on the bugs, and also became a success. S3 followed it instantly became a hit and then often served many examples of what Android – it’s great. The situation began to take an undesirable turn for the company with the release of S4. The unit does not become a breakthrough in terms of innovation, and was only filled with questionable features that nobody used. Its body is repeated S3, by which people at that time already tired, eight-processor became a publicity stunt – in fact, at the same time work can only 4 cores. Yes, the unit bought a lot, but did not have the enthusiasm and excitement typical of previous announcements ruler Galaxy. And then came S5, which for the most part the same fate as S4, especially in terms of complaints. People waited a complete redesign, with a metal housing and Quad HD screen, something new. At this stage, many have turned away from Samsung and HTC, and appealed to the LG, issuing interesting devices with interesting features.

To summarize this passage, Android Samsung will not be gone without, because the other players are increasing their influence and are ready to take the vacant “throne” and lead the Android-motion. The argument in favor of full transition to Tizen not seen anything at having a good reason. First, Samsung will need to attract developers to develop to create a thriving ecosystem of applications. To do this, in turn, want to create their own API, providing an easy porting of applications between Android and Tizen.

By analogy with the first Galaxy has proven its capacity to fight with the iPhone, and to become a full-fledged Tizen competitor Android, people buy these devices. Each of these tasks is comparable to the labors of Hercules, and there is no certainty that they have the power of Samsung. That’s why Samsung will not be solved for a long time to give up Android.

The original article

Elir: good retrospective, which helps to see the changes occurring in the market. Samsung managed to bring the situation under control, revise the design of their devices, and released a series of commercially successful vehicles. As for the Tizen, for most it is still something akin to the experiment. One of the features of Android is the lack of a monopoly in terms of production equipment, so the failure of one of the manufacturers of the use of the OS will be filled activity of another player. My opinion coincides with the author, the rejection of Android in favor of Tizen is unlikely, however, that does not stop to consider running as an independent project. In your opinion, dear readers, some of the “new” operating system could potentially compete with Android in the fight for the consumer?

Minimalism interface for such a program – it is one of the main criteria in this aTorrent minimalism achieved. We are met by a light “light” interface with a small advertising banner at the top. This location is ideally advertising, as the sidebar is on the top panel and the setup program, so no, let the finger hits the “best offer.”
 

In general, the program is clearly borrowed from the engine, as well as Holo- interface. Where do we just not have seen: in notebooks, financial managers, and even eReader. As if there was not a decision to pop the left sidebar has all the usual, so for plagiarism will not blame the developers. Moreover, the very thing that is not overloaded with unnecessary buttons doubles. It’s simple – all torrents downloading, distribution, completed, active and inactive torrents.
 

The upper right corner beyond the traditional keys for the search ” start / stop the download, “and Magnet links, presented the traditional” three points “. Here you can find an offer to buy pro-version for 153 rubles (which means to get rid of advertising and install the application on the “ancient» Android), visit the developer page to Facebook, write to them and set up the program. By the way, here you can put a checkbox next to “exit the program upon completion of downloads.” Do not say anything, convenient option, especially if you are working with torrents on mobile devices.
 

 281x450 32 KB. Big one: 800x1280 93 KB
 281x450 17 KB. Big one: 800x1280 57 KB

What As for the settings, then there is nothing superfluous. Choose light Holo-topic, language, autostart, and a folder for downloads by default. It is worth noting that if you put a check on startup aTorrent, it will run as a service, not as a program. Such an approach could indeed ensure the stability of the torrent client without interruption, as autostart program is sometimes some reason did not occur (although it was planned in the same IO-Scheduler 3C Toolbox).
