Duration: 45 Min

We discuss the topic of mobile risk and espionage via compromised mobile device. viaForensics' Director of R&D Thomas Cannon recently demonstrated "Corporate Espionage via a Mobile Device" as a proof of concept attack. In this demonstration, an innocent application is leveraged to harbor malware and exfiltrate data from a mobile device. The attacker is able to remotely activate phone features such as the camera and microphone, and the device can be used to bypass corporate defenses and infiltrate a corporate network. (Register)
