BBC News releases malware... on purpose
Tuesday - 8/10/2010, 8:30am EDT
- The BBC has released smartphone malware on purpose. It is an experiment to figure out just how secure smartphones really are. G-Hacks.net reports the malware takes the form of a game, but it actually spies on the smartphone owner. It gathers contacts, text messages and the phones' location...then sends all the information to a specific email address. The BBC says the malware was built using standard software toolkits, which makes it much harder to spot.
- With all of the noise about cloud computing, data center consolidation and transparent government, you could almost forget the government is under mandate to make sure networks incorporate IPv6 -- the new internet protocol that gives all sorts of security benefits. In a press release, Qwest Communications says not only is there plenty of room in the IPv6 pool, next-generation security is baked in.
