Risky Business #116 -- Veracode's Chris Eng talks Blackberry spyware
This week's show is hosted by Vigabyte and sponsored by Sophos. You'll hear from Sophos's Paul Ducklin later on in the show in this week's sponsor interview.
This week's feature interview is with Chris Eng of Veracode, and we'll be chatting about his analysis of a nasty bit of blackberry spyware that was pushed out to all blackberry users on UAE-based carrier Etisalat.
And of course we're joined by Adam Boileau for a discussion of the week's news.
Chris Eng's interview was awesome! Good stuff indeed. Chris said that they spent only a short amount of time on the BB spyware from Etisalat. I spent a little time on it as well and did a paper on it. You can find it here: http://chirashi.zensay.com/whitepapers I installed the spyware on the BB simulator and on my own Bold to examine it in action, including simulating the server that the spyware would send the intercepted data to.
LOL'd @ this story - i think the best way to describe this premature WAP push release is "a total cluster-f*ck !" Keep up the good work Pat.
