Are you new to mobile application security testing? Market noise can make it difficult to evaluate tools and sniff out the veracity of various vendor claims. Inspired by a Department of Defense guide called “Detecting Agile BS,” we sought to provide a similar resource for security analysts, developers and managers.
To sort the wheat from the chaff, consult our blog for a list of core capabilities and key questions to ask of your prospective vendors of static and dynamic mobile appsec testing tools.
Your highlights for the week are as follows:
  • Los Angeles sues maker of the Weather Channel app
  • Discover practical examples for getting started with R2Frida
  • Google Play suspends 85 adware-laden apps
  • Analysis uncovers WhatsApp vulnerability
  • Facebook can’t be deleted from some Samsung smartphones
