NowSecure #MobSec5
November has arrived and Daylight Saving Time comes to an end this weekend in the United States. Don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.
Going backwards is a familiar concept to several of the security researchers here at NowSecure who build tools to reverse engineer mobile apps and devices. Our expert team uncovers vulnerabilities and incorporates their findings into automated mobile appsec testing solutions that help customers close security gaps.
To learn more about the roles and responsibilities of a mobile security researcher, check out this interview with our own Francesco Tamagni.
Your highlights for the week are as follows:
  • Malicious app snatches personal credentials for legitimate apps
  • Wireless home camera review finds security and privacy vulnerabilities
  • Chip disconnects microphone when MacBook lid is closed
  • Spyware app exposes customer data in HTML code
  • Discover secure Android development best practices for iOS developers.
