For those of you who have a Galaxy S9 or Note 9 device, you may have seen the beta program open in the United States. UU. For the OneUI 2.0 version of Android 10. According to some who have enrolled in Reddit, the iris scanner has gained the ability to be used in a wider range of applications supported by Google’s biometric API (via Android Police).

Previously, the iris scanner on the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 could really only be used to unlock your device, Samsung Pay and the Knox Secure folder. This update means that you can now use biometric data to secure and unlock apps that support Google’s biometric API, such as LastPass, Google Pay, and some banking apps.

Adding the Google Biometrics API to Android 10 versions for Galaxy S9 and Note 9 is a big benefit, but those with Galaxy S8 and Note 8 are unlikely to be able to use their own scanners. iris for more than now, as Android 10 will not reach any of the devices.

As a result, the iris scanner on both devices has become infinitely more useful than in the past. So, if you haven’t yet set up iris scanning on your Galaxy S9 or Note 9, it might be time to do that.

iOS: Here’s something silly to do on a Friday. Download Rewound and listen to your Apple Music library (streaming or ownership) through an old iPod interface with a click wheel.

A limited version is available for free, but $ 1.99 unlocks the entire application, and if you like the application after a test, you could also pay.

Rewound is an unofficial application. To be accepted in the App Store (unlike other retro iPod applications that have not been approved), the application can not include any trademark or commercial image of Apple, it can not emulate an iPod already made use. You need to upload an image of the iPod wheel yourself. Here’s how.

    Then select Mask and Download masks.
  2. A GIF will show you how to save a photo in your library. Choose Twitter or Weibo, you don’t need to have an account either.

  4. In Weibo, press and hold the download button in the upper right corner, then select Add to photos.
  5. On Twitter, touch and hold the image, then select Add to photos. Touch Done in the upper left corner.
  6. Select Add mask in Photos.

New iPhone Security Alert: iPhone Only Krampus-3PC Malware Campaign Confirmed

Published

on

There’s no question that when it comes to security, the iPhone is a great smartphone option. This is probably the reason why so many information security professionals, especially ethical hackers and security researchers, use one. However, the fact that the iPhone works from a security point of view does not mean that users are safe from attacks.

Recent errors that could allow an attacker to block it on his iPhone, the vulnerabilities that could effectively block the iPhone with a malicious iMessage and even the security vulnerabilities present in a new iPhone 11 prove it. Of course, there is no doubt that the iPhone is less prone to the type of shocking Android malware attacks that we are so used to reading.

However, that doesn’t mean iPhone users can afford to be complacent. For a long time, it was thought that the threat actors produced variants of malware specifically encoded for iOS. Now there has been a totally specific malware campaign for iPhone actively exploited in the wild.

What is the Krampus-3PC malware campaign?

According to researchers from the Media Trust security and digital operations team, the Krampus-3PC campaign is aimed at iPhone users. And iPhone users alone. Sufficiently in time for the holiday season, hence the name Krampus, the unique malware used a variety of techniques to deliver the payload and avoid being detected by conventional scanning and blocking technology.

The Media Trust DSO report found that malicious advertising, also known as an advert attack, was used to distribute Krampus-3PC malware. More than 100 popular publishing websites, including many online newspapers, are said to have inadvertently broadcast malicious advertisements from a legitimate supplier of advertising technology.

How much payload does Krampus-3PC have on iPhone users?

iPhone users who browse these sites and see these adverts would be attacked without requiring user interaction. As soon as the creative label for the malicious ad was loaded, Krampus-3PC performed several checks to ensure that the ad was hosted and published as needed. He then injected a malicious script to activate the second verification step.

This confirmed if the navigation device was an iPhone before running the payload URL. Only iPhone users received this payload which redirected them to a malicious “reward” pop-up. If it failed, the Krampus-3PC persistence took hold and triggered a secondary method of loading the loading URL in another tab of the browser. By sucking in user session data, including the cookie ID, Krampus-3PC could hijack the browser.

“If the user had other sites open like their bank or favorite online retailer,” according to the Media Trust DSO report, then Krampus-3PC could “have access to the user account.”

Mitigate the risk of operating Krampus-3PC

Although the Media Trust report chose not to name the advertising platform that served the criminals Krampus-3PC, or the publications that unintentionally showed them to its proprietary iPhone readers, it is understood that the corrupted advertiser has now been banned from this platform.

However, that doesn’t mean that the Krampus-3PC threat isn’t resurrected by using a different platform to attack iPhone users. In fact, given the levels of sophistication shown here, I would be surprised if the criminal group behind him did not seek to leverage his investment again during the final stages of the Christmas shopping season.

As such, it is therefore essential to remain on guard, especially when it comes to clicking on emerging offers. Follow industry best practices to avoid phishing scams and check out these 26 iPhone security tips from 12 experts.
