Why Windows Phone Is The Safest Platform Among All?

20 Dec

windows phone

According to software security company F-Secure security Chief Mikko Hypponen, Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform is the safest mobile operating system available to businesses, he further told Windows Phone 8 is presently the safest mobile operating system here.

Although Apple’s iOS is also commonly known as being safe, exactly as safe as BlackBerry for business use, while Android remains a haven for cyber criminals. It seems that F-Secure is giving the “safest” award to Windows Phone 8 at the moment.

At the moment Windows Phone is the safest, there are­­­ thousands of malware for Blackberry and more malware for the iPhone and without a doubt progressively on Android. Interestingly, Hypponen anticipated that “Windows Phone is safest mobile operating system; due to its restrictive development policy should protect it from criminals for the foreseeable future. We’ve seen no malware at all targeting the platform. You want a safe & secure phone? Purchase a Windows Phone.”

Meanwhile, Android receives a bashing for being the most unsafe; firstly, because of amount of malicious Android installation files, it’s almost just double after every quarter. Secondly, because of 3rd party app stores with much has less security features as the official one, Google Play. Although, Google is said to address some of the issues with 3rd party apps/stores in the new version of Android 4.2 taste as jelly bean.

“Windows Phone’s security model inside is somehow prohibitive, I think it’s aimed to take a while before we see Windows Phone being seriously targeted.

In case of Windows Phone 8, it is quite safe at the moment, probably because of not much people are using Windows Phone 8 device. If/when Windows Phone 8 takes off; it might be become a much bigger target for malware. But still my hunch says it will stay the safest.

Google Using YouTube To Fight Back With Facebook, Who Take Advantage On The iPhone

15 Nov

google-vs-facebook

Facebook has a monstrous advantage on iPhone that Google does not, I gained experience from a source at Business Insider’s Ignition 2013 gathering without much fanfare, and this goes somehow to demonstrating Google’s sudden insistence that people use Google+ if they wish to comment on YouTube videos.

People have a tendency to stay logged into Facebook on their mobile phones. Not so Google or Google+. So as a advertiser and you need to arrive at people on their phones, the Facebook login identity will be a handy thing.

People stay logged into Facebook on both iPhone and Android frameworks, obviously. But Google’s issues are stepped up for iPhone, since iPhone doesn’t have tracking cookies – which help advertisers track your web searching habits – a great deal of Google’s search ad products don’t act too on the iPhone as they do on Android or a desktop environment. Cookies are the small bits of software that track your web scanning history so advertisers can target you with ads that appear significant.

Android does have cookies, and Google can utilize them to target you with ads when you scan for stuff on an Android phone.

Furthermore you’d feel that because 81% of smartphones are running Google’s Android framework, with cookies, that the iPhone hole wouldn’t be much of an issue. Anyhow it is.

iPhone users have a tendency to be wealthier than Android users, and ads coming on Apple’s mobile devices frequently have better ROI.

So another way for Google to develop a target-rich environment for promoters who need to reach at people on iPhone might be for additional iPhone user to log into Google+ and afterward neglect to log out.

It is coincidence; Google is currently pushing people to log into Google+ provided that they need to comment on YouTube videos. One plan here is to “civilize” YouTube, which has come to be ready with trolls and narrow minded people who comment namelessly under videos.

Anyhow Google additionally realizes that 40% of YouTube’s traffic originates from mobile devices, and mobile traffic will just build over the long time. A huge portion of the people will neglect to log out, and stay logged in semi-forever, simply the way Facebook users do.

That will expand the measure of Google+ logins accessible for focusing on iPhone – a topography controlled by Facebook.

Facebook still rules social media logins, consistent with Janrain, an organization that tracks social media information. About 45% of logins are from Facebook. However Google+ login were 33% of the crowd, Janrain says, and the gap between Facebook and Google+ is shutting.

Password is Dead! What Next For Security?

25 Oct

passwordsPasswords command our lives nowadays; they are part and package of investing time on the web. There are currently such a large number of applications, services, apparatuses and sites that requires us to log into our protected record utilizing a password that the sheer number of pass-phrases we need to recollect has spiraled totally crazy. What’s more it is dependably prudent for the best level of security to utilize a totally diverse password for every site and services.

 Clearly this is a gigantic security issue; assuming that somebody figures out how to work out that your Gmail password is ih4ve4b4dmemory and utilizes it to enter your email, they’re presumably set to attempt the same password for Facebook, Twitter and whatever possible online services you want to envision.

passwords_1

 You’ve probably recognized that when you log into a site that requires you to enter a username and password, your web browser helping offers to recall that it for you. This leads us onto the second alternative for us absent minded sorts. Of course… utilize an absurdly long and muddled password — Chrome will recollect that it for you so you never need to enter it again. Incredible!

chrome-save-password

 Then again you will interface a mobile to your record and when you head off to log in, a check codes will be conveyed to you through SMS. Your record will be unavailable until you have given this data.

So it’s clear that something better is required. Basically everybody has a mobile phone, yet this is not a perfect method of authentication. What do you do if your phone is lost or stolen? We have to consider something else. A mobile phone appears to be a great method of Identifications because something that most individuals have with them more often than not.

Apple, with the launch of the iPhone 5S chose to utilize something else that you have with you as a method of recognizable proof. It’s nothing especially new, yet the new iPhone’s unique mark onlooker is an intriguing security strategy, and it’s the kind of thing that we have to put more thought into.

iphone 5s

iPhone 5s features a fingerprint reader which could be adopted elsewhere.

The fingerprint spectator and NFC devices are at present being utilized to control access to mobile phones, yet there is no excuse for why this ought not be augmented into different regions, for example website security. Expanding amounts of individuals are beginning to understand the confinements and security issues connected with accepted passwords.

The mission explanation is honestly simple:

We push client authentication that doesn’t require us to recollect anything. We’re finding more approaches to utilize the Internet, and we need better approaches to recognize ourselves. It ought to be not difficult to log into each site we utilize now and to enlist at each new site we need to include. We decline to depend on our remembrances for security, and rather demand gauges that make it simple to stay safe and keep our information private.

nfc device

NFC devices such as the Nymi bracelet could offer an alternative to passwords.

How would you feel about passwords? Is it accurate to say that they are something you have gotten used to, or do you finds them a fundamental abhorrence that you’d get a kick out of the chance to replace? Do you surmise that two- or three -variable verification is the route ahead or is there any importance?

Boot –To- Gecko (B2G) Attack, Probability of Facing by Firefox OS with HTML5

27 Sep

firefox_os_The Firefox OS, another competitor in mobile operating systems, will probably see HTML5-identified strike and attacks on a vital operating system process. Firefox OS is assembled around HTML5; the most recent form of the open standard web programming language that is intended to be more intuitive and multimedia neighborly. Some mobile phone operators are now delivering devices with the Firefox OS, which originates from Mozilla, the charitable association behind the Firefox desktop program.

 Mozilla’s Firefox OS looks to test the strength of Google and Apple’s, Android and iOS operating systems. Firefox OS is designed for high-execution, minimal effort phones running apps utilizing the HTML5 web modifying language.

Firefox OS acquires much from the Firefox mobile browser and Gecko application model, which is utilized to render Web pages and show applications. The platform that support Firefox OS, called Boot to Gecko (B2G), gets 95 percent of its code from the mobile browser and Gecko, as per Mozilla.

 The mobile OS utilizes a Linux kernel, which then bangs into the Gecko run time. The highest layer of the technology stack, called Gaia, produces the interface seen by clients. As additional individuals utilize smartphones, attackers and hackers are progressively searching for approaches to endeavor mobile units.

hack“Despite the fact that the Firefox OS may not enjoy the business sector of the Android OS, the utilization of HTML5 is step by step picking up traction around clients (Amazon likewise acknowledges HTML5 for its apps),”. “Subsequently, paying little mind to OS, we can want that as additional applications and sites will utilize HTML5, we can anticipate that such assaults will expand in the future.

B2G holds a methodology inside the OS that authorizes authorizations conceded to applications and counteracts unapproved demands by those applications. A few applications can solicit more authorization; however those appeals must be checked and marked by an app store. The B2G process has high benefits and vets those petition. Mozilla has affirmed B2G is a conceivable attack vector.

“Provided that this process is misused, an attacker can acquire abnormal amount benefits (like root access)”.

A powerlessness discovered a month ago, which was really altered sometime during repairing an alternate blemish in June 2013, made the B2G process to crash. It could have permitted an attacker to run discretionary code on a device with the same high benefits as the B2G process.

User Wants Android, iOS Apps-Is It Downside For Windows Developers?

13 Sep

Windows applications developers moving into the mobile domain must handle the actuality that the platform users need are possibly Windows.

win-app-android

The question rotated around developer’s confidence in the Windows environment, and if not long from now has harmed Microsoft’s reputation. With the response that “The dominant part say they will at present be focusing on Windows desktop development, and that is a need for business that is not set to go anyplace soon.” But one thing that have been creeping up truly in the course of the most recent not many years is the development of Apple and Android, and seeing the diverse shape components of devices. It’s these different structure components which are pressing on to be disruptive to the industry; with laptop sales slowing, and the ascent of mobile hardware for example tablets, developers feel the requirement to underpin this new device too.

A report discharged entitled “Entering the Brave New World of Mobile Apps” underlines both the interest Windows developers are confronting for mobile software ramming and the actuality that the two platforms generally popular by their users are Google Android and Apple iOS, not Windows platforms, which rank 3rd  and 4th  in the review. The report was written by Dimensional Research and Participants incorporated 1,337 persons included in Windows desktop application development, either as engineers, developers, or improvement managers.

The review discovered that 85 percent of respondents had asks for mobile applications, which include mobile competencies for existing applications, new apps inside and out, or replacing existing mobile frameworks. Android was the most solicited platform, with 83 percent getting demands for it, accompanied by iOS (67 percent); Windows Phone (33 percent), Windows RT (13 percent), and RIM Blackberry (14 percent).

In the mean time, 92 percent of respondents reported having worries about building mobile apps, incorporating a need for new development skills, the high expenses of creating for various platforms, and lacking tooling. Eighty-five percent said native applications are best, and 74 percent discovered HTML 5 and JavaScript-based development testing because of issues like entering device characteristics and deficient language proficiency. Ninety-five percent see worth in as a concern point source code for desktop and mobile apps. As an answer in this vein, supporting numerous mobile platforms incorporating Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac OS.

Something which I directly considered amazing in the research was Android is the most solicited platform to have apps for. There’s more money which gets used in Apple’s App Store; yet a great deal of getting onto the Android platform  is much simpler, there is no forthright expense, it’s actually a couple of taps and you’re an Android developer and off you go.
