Samsung Smartphones Facing Malicous Malware Attack

The disclosed attack that has the ability to wipe information from different Android devices of Samsung can also disable SIM cards from these handsets, if used in malicious web pages. Researchers who are working on the latest technology have reported this information.

Samsung Leaves Sim Cards Section VulnerableA research assistant at Berlin Technical University, Ravishankar Borgaonkar, recently commented on the data swipe technology attack, in Buenos Aires(Argentina) where an Ekoparty Conference was going on.

He commented that this attack would be launched from a particular web page by loading Unified Resource Identifier. There will be a different code reset within the inframe of the phone. If someone visits the page from any such Samsung Android device the dialer application inside automatically does a factory reset to execute that code.

Different Android devices from Samsung like S Advance, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Beam are supposed be included in the vulnerable category because all these handsets are compatible with the factory reset technology.

During the conference, the assistant researcher showed that all these devices could be forced to open links on that particular webpage if the HFC phones are touched to particular NFC tag. The technology inside will scan the code by positioning the link in a particular service message. He also added that an attacker would have the facility to include the same links in e-mails, twitter feed or in SMS to force the victim in clicking the link manually.

This vulnerability has been detected 3 months ago and it was first located in the stock dialer of the Android phones.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  27. I have a wordpress blog and I would like to remove everything (it’s hosted on my own domain and hosting) because I would like to delete my site. How can I save my blog posts in a folder or something in my documents (offline) because I don’t want to delete everything completely. Can I do that in one go, if I can even do it ? Thank you !.

  28. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate it!
