Cracking Android pattern lock in five attempts

The researchers say cracking the code could be achieved by sneakily filming a victim whilst using their device in public.

This footage would then be fed into the algorithm, which then gets to works on guessing the lock pattern within seconds.

The attackers would not even need to be close to the victim, as the team was able to steal information from up to two and a half metres away by filming on a standard smartphone camera, and from nine metres using a more advanced digital SLR camera.

Gooligan, Google Malware

 

Check Point reported at least 86 apps have been found to have traces of Gooligan, most of which appear legitimate and have been given artificially high ratings in the app store.

Once one of the infected apps is installed onto a user’s device, either from an app store or by clicking a malicious link, it begins collecting data about the device and reporting it to a command and control server—a centralized computer that issues commands to and receives reports from devices.

How to check / know if your account is hacked?

Check Point recommended in a blog post that people who suspect their devices may have been compromised (seen unusual pop-up ads on your phone lately?) should check to see whether their account has been breached by entering their email addresses at the following website: https://gooligan.checkpoint.com/.

 

New KAT sites – Alternative to KickassTorrents

KickassTorrents

 

The official KickassTorrents website (also known as Kickass Torrents, or just KAT) may be dead, but the war to keep its name alive rages on. The torrent site version of whack-a-mole is never-ending.

One apparently legitimate mirror was kickasstorrents.website, which came online courtesy of an isohunt member’s handiwork. It no longer works.

Another alternative was kat.am, referred to by many as the “official” reincarnation of the original KickassTorrents site. It too has died.

But the owner of kat.am has already launched two replacements: kickass.cd and kickass.mx. And, in contrast to other mirror sites, new torrents are being added frequently.

Another alternative is kickass.la. This site doesn’t appear to have any new torrents being uploaded, meaning it is a very basic mirror of the original.

PANAMA PAPERS – The secrets of dirty money

Panama Papers

How hundreds of journalists revealed the secrets of some of the world’s most powerful people

About the Panama Papers
By Frederik Obermaier, Bastian Obermayer, Vanessa Wormer and Wolfgang Jaschensky
Over a year ago, an anonymous source contacted the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) and submitted encrypted internal documents from Mossack Fonseca, a Panamanian law firm that sells anonymous offshore companies around the world. These shell companies enable their owners to cover up their business dealings, no matter how shady.

In the months that followed, the number of documents continued to grow far beyond the original leak. Ultimately, SZ acquired about 2.6 terabytes of data, making the leak the biggest that journalists had ever worked with. The source wanted neither financial compensation nor anything else in return, apart from a few security measures.

“The data provides rare insights into a world that can only exist in the shadows. It proves how a global industry led by major banks, legal firms, and asset management companies secretly manages the estates of the world’s rich and famous: from politicians, FIFA officials, fraudsters and drug smugglers, to celebrities and professional athletes,” according to Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The cache of 11.5 million files includes names of very popular and prominent figures. Some of the names on the list are: Alaa Mubarak (Son of Former Egyptian President), Kojo Annan (Son of former United Nations Secretary General), Ayad Allawi (Ex-Prime minister of Iraq), King Salman bin Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud (King of Saudi Arabia), Li Xiaolin (daughter of former Chinese Premier Li Peng),
