Dev and AppSec users of the Frida dynamic instrumentation toolkit will be pleased to know that the new 12.3 release boasts a crash reporting feature that provides visibility into why an app terminates.
Frida creator and NowSecure Mobile Security Researcher Ole André Vadla Ravnås details and demonstrates in this blog and embedded video how the new crash reporting feature works. Read on to find out how Frida 12.3 users and NowSecure customers alike will benefit from the enhancement.
Your highlights for the week are as follows:
  • Apple fixes FaceTime eavesdropping bug
  • Android devices are susceptible to malicious PNG files
  • Apple cracks down on apps that use session replay analytics
  • Google removes nefarious beauty camera apps from Play Store
