Mobile Security for Android combats mobile threats
Posted on 16 January 2013.
Commtouch announced Mobile Security for Android, an OEM solution that offers cloud-assisted antivirus and Web security services delivered through a client SDK.


Mobile Security for Android offers proven antivirus and Web security technology backed by a global infrastructure that organizations can easily add to their products and services. It offers:
  • Detection of known and previously unseen Android malware with heuristic and hash-based scanning
  • Secure mobile browsing and prevention of mobile phishing attacks
  • Scanning of files, apps, SMS, MMS and email attachments
  • Complete flexibility with on-demand and on-access scanning.
The Mobile Security service and its client-based SDK use very little memory, bandwidth and battery time, leveraging the threat detection power of Commtouch’s global cloud infrastructure instead of client-side resources.

"There’s no question that protection against Android-specific threats is needed now more than ever,” said Helmuth Freericks, vice president of antivirus products at Commtouch. “The new offering provides OEM partners with the unique opportunity to offer integrated antivirus and Web security for Android environments. We have specifically designed the SDK to be easily integrated – allowing our partners to rapidly provide added value to customers."

Cloned, booby-trapped Dark Web sites steal bitcoins, login credentials

Apart from being a way for dissidents and journalists to do their business without being spotted and identified by "the powers that be", the Dark Web is also a place where criminals sell and buy illegal wares and services and, apparently, where they also get robbed by scammers.
