NowSecure #MobSec5
The story goes that St. Patrick died on this day some 1,500 years ago. Traditionally, the Irish cancelled fasting and teetotaling for a single day during Lent – March 17 – to honor him.
Welcome to your St. Patrick’s Day edition of #MobSec5!
This week’s round-up of mobile security news includes:
  • Looking for answers about vulnerabilities in the protocol that connects cellular networks
  • Malicious music manipulates mobile motion-sensors?
  • Manufacturer of massage device that pairs with a mobile app pays for bad vibes
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend, be good, stay safe, and remain skeptical of anyone telling stories of snakes on an Irish plain tonight at the pub.
