Google has pulled the popular CamScanner app from its Play Store after it was discovered that it was spreading malware.

Kaspersky discovered that the app – which was installed more than 100 million times – contained an advertising library with a malicious dropper component.

The component was detected as “Trojan-Dropper.AndroidOS.Necro.n” and was designed to download and launch a payload from malicious servers.

CamScanner was a popular app among Android users which allowed them to scan documents with their smartphone camera and save the content to a PDF document.

The app had 1.8 million reviews, most of which were positive. However, a recent influx of negative reviews pointed to problems with the app’s user experience which prompted Kaspersky to investigate the software.

Facebook’s Libra offers up to $10000 to bug bounty hunters

An example of a “critical” vulnerability, would be a “Virtual Machine flaw that allows the execution of a Move smart contract to be altered.” Facebook …

Facebook’s Libra Association announced yesterday the launch of its public bug bounty program. The details, outlined in ablog post, said the program is designed to “strengthen the security of the blockchain” before Libra’s projected launch sometime next year.

The program will be hosted on popular bug bounty platformHackerOne, and “enables developers to submit bugs and alert the association to security and privacy issues and vulnerabilities to help ensure a scalable, reliable, and secure launch.” As of July 2018, HackerOne’s network has some 200,000 members. It’s used by large companies, including Starbucks, Spotify, and the European Commission.

The association wants hackers to guard against forks, transaction tampering, block tampering, validator compromises, denials of service and double-spending.

The discovery of even “the most subtle” bugs will be rewarded, and bounty hunters can get up to $10,000 for finding “critical” issues on the testnet. An example of a “critical” vulnerability, would be a “Virtual Machine flaw that allows the execution of a Move smart contract to be altered.” Facebook has the final say about the threat level, and their decisions are non-appealable.

But there are rewards for smaller issues too: The discovery of “high” threat vulnerabilities pay out $5,000, “medium” threats pay out $1,500, and “low” threats pay out $500. Libra aims to pay out within 14 days of a threat being reported. To date, just one bounty’s been paid out to hackerMichael Xu—$1,500 for a “medium threat.”

To further encourage bounty hunters, the program will cherry-pick examples of bugs and issues found–and hopefully fixed–to incentivize others to rummage through Libra’s code. The announcement also claimed the project will have an outreach program to encourage the academic community to help identify potential problems.

The bug bounty program should help to keep hackers from breaching Libra when it goes live on Facebook’s WhatsApp and Messenger platforms next year. Before then, however, Facebook has to find a way of stopping regulators from derailing the project before it even begins. Unluckily for Facebook, these ‘bugs’ are much harder to squash.

IBM AI Platform Watson To Help Indian Companies Keep User Data Safe From Breaches

IBM is providing its AI platform Watson to Indian companies to protect against data breaches. The threat of cybersecurity is increasing, IBM’s security …
IBM's Watson To Protect Indian Users’ Data As Data Breach Reaches IndiaIBM's Watson To Protect Indian Users’ Data As Data Breach Reaches India

Cybersecurity is becoming a big issue globally with new data breaches emerging. The threat has been affecting India enterprises as they’re rapidly digitising their services. These companies have been witnessing a rise in data breaches and exposure of confidential information.

IBM is trying to turn this into a business opportunity. The New York-based tech giant has started providing its artificial intelligence (AI) platform Watson to detect, assess and resolve issues of data threats without relying on the physical workforce.

Vaidyanathan Iyer, security software leader of IBM India, said India is digitising at breakneck speed because of faster digitisation. Therefore facing more security threats.

“The average total cost of a data breach in India is INR 13 Cr, which represents an increase of 7.29% from the prior year,” he added.

The technology is said to be an effective tool replacing the team of tech experts with just one AI. IBM, also known as the Big Blue, has been working with various small and medium businesses and enterprises in the country to install Watson embedded products and services for end-to-end cybersecurity management.

What Makes Up The Market For IBM’s Security Services?

IBM has been growing in double digits in India and expects to maintain the same pace over the next few years. There has been a 50% year-on-year (YoY) increase in the adaptation of this security software solution in the first half of 2019, said the company.

IBM’s core demand is coming from various sectors like banking, financial services, insurance, government, defence and manufacturing. India’s flagship markets exchange, the Bombay Stock Exchange Ltd, is one of the customers of the company.

IBM has been working with BSE to design, build and manage cybersecurity operations centre (SOC) to safeguard the company’s assets and protect stakeholders’ data. Such centres will enable around-the-clock security event monitoring, event handling, security analysis and incident management and response.

Shivkumar Pandey, CISO of BSE, said, “The end-to-end security solutions, services and global expertise from IBM will help BSE consolidate and fortify best practices under one umbrella.”

IBM is also providing its products to SMBs for extensive endpoint security. One of the biggest reasons for the installation of Watson is due to the shortage of “skilled security teams” within their organisation to assess threats.
