Posted: August 23, 2010 – 9:17 am | Author: | Filed under: Mobile Security

Earlier this year, I put up a couple of posts about an issue in the official Foursquare clients, for Android and Blackberry (and, by extension, iPhone), surrounding transmission of user credentials. The gist was that user credentials were sent “in the clear” and thus subject to interception by attackers (chiefly over WiFi). Most of the analysis focused on […]

I had the opportunity to take a very interesting Android Forensics course last week offered by ViaForensics.

higB here..  I’ll keep my post mostly about the culture Amanda did a great job making sure we were in the Palace tower (not the stinky Forum tower).

Hey, Corey here, I’ll get the Intrepidus Group con wrap up started, followed by some more posts from the crew. The IG gang spent last week out in Vegas for the annual BlackHat and DefCon trips.
