ImmuniWeb Mobile App Scanner – Specifics

Starting from its Web interface, we’ll look at this tool and then dive deeper, describing what ImmuniWeb Mobile App Scanner can do and how to use it. So let’s kick off. Compatibility with the network

.662 Since this is a web-based service, it can be used on almost all platforms. Being platform-agnostic, it achieves the highest level of compatibility between application and device. Our point:. To use the ImmuniWeb Mobile App Scanner you simply need a Web browser. This means you can use it on any computer which is connected to the Internet. There are two ways to submit an application for testing. You can import your mobile app from the Google Play Store, or search an existing app. This can be achieved theoretically on any computer because iOs users need to upload their software. MacOs however seems to be the preferred platform if you want to check the software as easily as possible. User Interface

.663 This is a highly technical solution which digs deep into your app’s code. Yet even for non-developers, the software is incredibly easy to use. Our point:. After opening your browser’s ImmuniWeb Mobile App Scanner, you’ll be greeted with a fairly simple interface. At the top of the page you’ll find five tabs already open with the ‘ Front ‘ tab. Through searching the available tabs you can discover what this service can do to test the pricing structure and also provide your input. The remainder of the ‘ Index ‘ tab page provides useful information and overviews of the applications reviewed beforehand. You can filter this list first by searching for the highest or lowest scores. Then there’s a segment highlighting applications with discovered malware. You will now see two pie charts illustrating the weakest points of all the scanned applications, as well as a rundown of encryption figures.

.665 The software drills through submitted apps quite deeply. The findings define problem areas precisely which is a tremendous benefit. Our rating: 9.5/10. We’ll be doing a sample test to show you just how the ImmuniWeb Mobile App Scanner functions. We’ll check WhatsApp for Android which is one of the platform’s most popular apps. Here’s how the whole procedure went: We will check the latest version of WhatsApp Messenger that has already been found on the Google Play Store. Therefore we will type ‘ WhatsApp ‘ at the top of the page in the search field; at the top of the page we can see some basic information such as the name version I d of the application and when the test began and ended. There’s also a good summary that tells us that 2 highly dangerous vulnerabilities have been found. WhatsApp has 23 problem areas in total 7 of which are low risk and 5 of which are medium risk. .666 You can check three results tabs: Mobile Application Activity Mobile Application Review, and Mobile Application Communications. The first one lists the access to various parts of Android for the program. For example, we can see that WhatsApp has the ability to access your camera and location from your microphone and record audio contacts from storage messaging devices. .667 Now a second tab is the most important part of this test: Mobile Application Review. What’s problematic in terms of WhatsApp is that this device can access external storage that potentially dangerous applications can also access. That brings with it a risk of corruption and manipulation of data. The software also includes potentially sensitive hardcoded data which is easy to extract. The final tab gives a list of sources of incoming and outgoing data and their protection. For WhatsApp ImmuniWeb Mobile App Scanner announced that it has found a number of malicious websites. To get a complete picture of the protection of your application you also need to make sure that there are no issues with its backend. That type of testing is not available here however. You need to sign up for this type of testing for ImmuniWeb Mobile (premium-priced).

All of the applications were produced by the same studio called “Tools4Tv,” and over 8 million times were collectively downloaded by people who wanted to find a way to control their TV air conditioning units and other home electronic devices. What really goes against the current trends that adware and malware developers want these apps to be extraordinarily polished were all completely fake featuring none of the promised features. But due to their form consumers could easily deduce that the missing features could very well be ascribed to incompatibility with their devices keeping the apps installed on their phones for longer so that they can test them out with other electronics. This allowed the apps to push advertisements to the devices being infected and make money for their developer. 9 Fake # ware apps found on Google Play with more than 8 million installations. Unwanted code is concealed in non-functioning apps that once launched hide from the view of the user and display ads. All these apps are fake without any promised functionality. Pic.twitter.com / Lc0N2BuUwv — Lukas Stefanko (@LukasStefanko) January 11, 2019 One important thing for developers to remember is that Play Store user feedback should be taken into account even before downloading an app and figuring out what its own functionality is. For example, the most popular of the adware apps listed above had 57000 reviews averaging a rating of 3.8 with many reviewers warning that the app is just adware and nothing more. While fake reviews are always a possibility and a classic tactic for scammers to try to alter reality when an app gets enough downloads, it’s bound to get a large pool of honest feedback that shape a true picture of what it is today.There’s a new batch of apps on Google Play that posed as remote control apps but was really just adware, according to a study by Lukas Stefanko a malware researcher at Eset.
