How many people use encrypted apps? New reports from US research studies

novembre 24, 2017 Self Defence, Technology No Commenti
encrypted-apps-mobile

Although encrypted messaging is well-known and taken into account everywhere, there is a remarkable number of people who still perseveres to ignore the huge contribution of this kind of softwares to mobile security. In order to make things clearer, past year some researchers from Google and Carnegie Mellon Univeristy in Pittsburgh presented a study at the Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS) which held every year in Santa Clara, California. The research results showed that nearly 7% of the more than 1,500 surveyed people used to employ apps in such a way that actually wasn’t safe. This means that security app value is definitely underrated!

But even more incredible is the fact that the most of asked people adduced they made use of encrypted apps because their friends or relatives did the same, not indeed for securing their messages! Not surprisingly, the most-used apps, such as Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, or till a few months ago even WhatsApp, do not use end-to-end messaging encryption at all. Anyway it’s time to admit we’re still so far behind a full mobile security awareness.

Nevertheless nowaday there are specific mobile devices that allow a complete and automatic usage of encrypted apps without any user intervention, such as the so called encrypted cell phones which provide a total protection when it comes to communicate or use web browser, social networks, messaging platforms etc. Not only, some of the above mentioned devices are also able to protect the user against mobile phone eavesdropping or privacy breakdown. So if you are really concerned about your mobile communications as well as disdained about the ignorance that turns around these powerful protection tools, why do not try to consider using an encrypted mobile phone? It will be surely worth to attain your full mobile phone security!

How to monitor everything with an IP WiFi micro camera

novembre 10, 2017 Surveillance, Technology No Commenti
micro-spy-camera-ip-web

Micro IP cameras are widely used in audio/video surveillance field to monitor or keep an eye on places, cars, people etc. from distance. They also offer great benefits both in practicity and convenience, just think of the high cost of some wired analogue camera systems. Anyway the main purpose of a micro IP camera is to be remotely ‘reached’  by user over the Internet like a simple network peripheral (i.e. desktop client, printer, etc.). In short your only concern will be to hide it in a place so to smartly start and get audio/video files for your purpose.

Spy cameras using WiFi technology

A particular type of micro IP camera is the one that uses wireless technology for digital audio/video transmission, without any signal loss on the distance. Since it doesn’t need cables to acquire video signals, a digital WiFi camera over network is also able to afford you a maximum freedom when you are going to conceal it into objects or other tricky places.

A transmission control module with WiFi IP camera: say stop to low quality amateur video footage!

Audio/video transmission systems using WiFI IP cameras have changed over time, in order to meet the ever growing demands from security and investigation professionals. Today’s video footage through remote monitoring tools comes along with deferred monitoring, schedulable recording, as well as device-friendly management interface. One of the most effective devices for professional use is the transmitting module IP-WEB equipped with 3.7mm IP CMOS camera, 600TVL sensor and H.264 video compression. The mentioned module is very small and allows a real remote configuration so that you can, for example, schedule or manage video recordings or set the motion detection system for starting of A/V recording directly from distance. The micro camera is also reachable via mobile phone, exploiting a very intuitive and user friendly interface application in order to monitor your focused targets.

You can easily conceal the module within tiny objects, alarm or wall clocks, small appliances and so on, because of its very small dimensions. Furthermore the device is able to work in full autonomy 24 hours a day, 7 to 7, when powered by power grid, without any user intervention. You can also use additional battery modules to extend time up to 10 hours of A/V transmission in a row.

Main advantages of IP Web WiFi:

  • Micro camera very easy to conceal
  • H.264 video compression
  • Smart settings of wireless network interface, videos, alarms and file storage on micro SD card (included, 32GB)
  • Also manageable from smartphone, you do not need to have a pc
  • Supporting knowles microphone audio
  • Point-to-point (P2P) direct connection
  • Enhanced WiFi wireless connection
  • Able to record on motion, by manual or scheduled settings
  • Supports up to more simultaneous users
  • Integrated software able to view, record or manage different cameras via pc, like a real professional DVR

spy-micro-recorder-black-box

When it comes to talking about digital micro recorders, usually are meant all those spy operations used in listening to any sound or speech heard within a room. Actually a very few people know that a spy voice recorder can be also used as indoor passive listening/recording device. Let’s try to understand a bit more.

Imagine for a while you are being forced to entrust your child to a new babysitter, to leave your loft at the mercy of unknown bricklayers or to go away for the so long-awaited weekend. Actually, in the mentioned situations, it is more suggested to rely on a spy micro camera, anyway a spy recording system can also serve the same purpose in order to put an environment under audio control. But only provided your ear is so well-trained to translate a suspect word into a noteworthy behavior.

The BLACK-BOX mini digital micro recorder is very appreciated in most similar cases, cause it has a low cheap button battery able to provide up to 150 hours of activity, which means 30/40 hours of real recording working on 11KHz sampling rate. Thanks to its tiny size (only 32x14x6 mm!) the device can be also concealed in many places i.e. small household items, drawer boxes, fake clocks etc.

Of course we are talking about of one of the best mini recorders available on the market. The reason is simple: it acts as a true “black box” for recovering of all audio recordings. After the job is done, you can in fact safely remove it from its location and upload audio files to your pc letting them start playing with your favorite audio player, better if equipped with equalizer or audio filter for a clearer listening.

BLACK-BOX mounts a sensitive microphone, able to capture audio even being at a distance of 12 meters away the sound source. It is also able to start recording automatically when getting sounds or conversations, thanks to its integrated VAS system. Additionally to those unbelievable features, this mini voice recorder uses a setup management software allowing you to adjust the recording quality and times. Not only. It may also make the recorded files inaccessible to third parties as the device is in no way recognized by another pc not having the same management interface software.

How to protect your smartphone from being tapped using encryption tools

encryption-cell-phone-tools

Defending your privacy on smartphones or other mobile devices from hackers and data thieves is not easy, actually not even impossible if you have decided to take advantage of special hardware contrivances as well as to install the right tools on. That’s the reason why we are going now to talk about all those security programs and devices which have proven a substantial effectiveness in mobile data protection: encrypted calls and text messages, safe virtual spaces, security apps, and many other defense tools that can really help you, provided you turn to competent companies which have been on the countersurveillance market for years. So our advice is always the same: beware of those unreliable vendors on the net!

Kind of data encryption softwares and anti-tapping mobile phones

Protection from illegal mobile phone data theft essentially moves in two directions:

  1. implementation of security apps running with data encryption algorithm;
  2. special mobile phones able to protect the phone from active and passive eavesdropping systems (i.e. GSM interceptor, IMSI catcher etc.).

The first group includes those kind of software/devices (eg encrypted cell phones) using an encryption system for secure sending and receiving of calls, email, SMS, and so on. In the second case we mean anti-tapping cell phones, also called stealth phones, able to protect the user by alerting him to possible interception attempts.

A defense helpful to anyone, even to optimistic people or occasional communicators!

At this point some of you maybe might reply: “Actually I don’t have important data to protect!” or: “Why do I have to use this software if I do not spend much time on cellphone?” Well, let’s just say that even when you surf the net via smartphone you are exposed to very high risks, especially if you attend social networks or visit on line shopping web sites. So again what about  mail messages affected by malicious viruses able to crash a whole mobile operating system?

In short, both whether you install them for defense or just ‘cause you never know’, a security software or an anti-tapping mobile phone will help you to keep yourself away from many risky situations. To know more about the effectiveness of this incredible kind of products take a look at this page.

Mobile phone spy software: all you need to know before starting to spy on a cell phone

settembre 20, 2017 Surveillance No Commenti
cell-phone-spy-software

Why should anyone ever want to spy on a cell phone at a distance? Well, there could be a lot of reasons for that, actually as we said so many times, to spy on someone’s mobile is illegal. However there are extreme situations, related to the personal sphere, requiring an “active” participation of the person who wants to solve a problem. Such kind of situantions can quietly benefit from a remote mobile phone monitoring software, for example, in the case of a teen involved in drug or cyberbullying problems, an elderly Alzheimer’s sufferer or just when you want to keep a place under audio control. In these and a few other circumstances linked to things or people, a mobile spy software can be considered an effective choice.

One moment, did we just say software? Yes of course, because the era of spy mobile phones working as hardware devices is actually overwhelmed! The most of mobile software applications are very easy to be installed on smartphones and this also applies to remote monitoring software.

Which cell phones are able to run a spy app?

Today the mobile app market is turning out to be prosperous and there is no reason to not presume that this kind of business will always get better in the future. It is indeed estimated that mobile applications will see an unprecedented exponential growth in the coming years, so we also suppose manufacturers will review their development standards trough a continuous software upgrade. Mobile monitoring apps follow the same logic in terms of development, reliability, and niche utility.

Before we go through the main features of a mobile spy software, we would like you to focus on the following points:

  • Spy mobile phones are normal smartphones working with all those factory functions allowing the user to communicate or surf the net;
  • A spy phone app must be necessarily installed on the latest smartphone running Android, iOS or Blackberry operating system;
  • The cell phone on which the spy application has been installed must be owned by the person to be monitored.

How does spy phone software work?

Forget all those hard operations started through continuous and constant monitoring of target! The new spy software management is completely automatic and the target cell phone control is very simple: actually just you need to operate via browser from any place in the world. Once logged the user will visualize a dashboard including many menus such as: list and voice recording of incoming and outgoing calls, audio monitoring records even in real time, displaying of any SMS, email, or social conversation occurring on the phone. There will be also shown all taken and/or received photos, Internet history, contact list as well as spy cell phone GPS location.

Why is it important to rely on companies which have been working in the surveillance industry for years?

On the Internet you can find a lot of companies which boast the outstanding qualities of their own spy software. So be careful because, apart the reliability of few vendors who have been on the market for the past few years, the most spy software providers market applications which do not do what promised, or worse, do not work at all. Also beware those suppliers who offer “miraculous” solutions at very low prices! Common sense suggests, in these cases, to contact companies which have a minimum of reputation and commercial credibility around the world. Thus we warmly suggest you to be away from the scammers!

How to choose the best spy bugs without getting tricked

settembre 7, 2017 Surveillance, Technology No Commenti
gsm-listening-spy-bugs

Lately searching for a valid product on the Internet has become a very difficult task. For example, in the case of spy bug transmitters or any other electronic device commonly used in the investigation field, you will note that along with those few old companies, come also across a lot of makeshift vendors. Not only. Some links on Google point to broken, dated, or even worse, inappropriate content.

And what about price instead? Also in this case, let’s draw a veil over: spy bugs, bug transmitters, micro cameras and other professional monitoring devices are sold at the cost of just a few cups of coffee. This does not really appeal the professionals looking for a product of quality! But let’s see now how to stay afloat in this ocean of approximation and commercial fraud, so that you will not be cheated anymore in the future.

Before launching a search on the Internet in order to find the best spy bugs on the market, actually avoiding true “toys”, it will be enough to keep in mind the following three simple steps:

  1. Make sure the vendor is really located on the territory, that means whether it has a shop or at least an office. But above all, ask yourself: how long does the company work in this field? Since reputation and reliability are very important when you are going to purchase a product on the web.
  2. Do not be dazzled by very low prices and super-convenient deals, since in the investigation field the cost is actually related to what is the real worth of the product, much more than in other commercial areas.
  3. Then ask yourself honestly: does the supplier have the ability to help me in the product implemantation or installation? Can he undertake to assist me with an effective after sales service? In case of a negative responses, give it up, because you might purchase a product which won’t ever be used.

Actually we are aware some of you will continue to ignore the above advice. But in this case do not say we didn’t ewarn you.

Protect yourself from illegal cell phone tapping!

safe-antitapping-cell-phone-stealth

If you are used to networking in search of easy solutions against the unauthorized phone tapping issue, you may be disappointed. Just like that, because the overwhelming problem of phone privacy, especially that one which concerns mobile network, has long since exceeded the limits, so much to induce public opinion to wonder whether it is still correct to talk about data confidentiality today. However, until to spy on each other are the world’s governments, it might not bother you at all, but what if you suddenly realize that the interceptor is the same fellow you cordially greets every morning with your best smile ever?

Maybe we are going a little bit too far. However, concerning business world, sometimes the problem proves to be dramatically real. Actually it is not uncommon to find glaring examples of unauthorized cell phone tapping in case of entrepreneurs spied on by evil competitors or business partners, as well as politicians tapped during electoral campaigns, or even manufacturing executives robbed of industrial, military or government secrets. Then you have been warned! Out there hidden in the ocean of bits and voice data, someone could be listening to your mobile conversations!

How does a mobile phone tapping operation carry out?

In intelligence field there are some equipments, such as the GSM Interceptor, which simply pretend to look like a GSM cell phone bridge, so that your cell phone will connect through the spy device instead of directly connect itself to the cell phone bridge operator. In other words, you come true the condition technically called “man in the middle”.

Untraceable anti-tapping mobile Stealth Phone: the real solution to finally get rid of these dangerous individuals

The undetectable mobile Stealth Phone is a normal GSM cell phone specially designed to protect you from any physical onsite mobile tapping. Not only. It also allows you to send or receive encrypted SMS available between two or more Stealth Phones, providing the user with a full-fledged defense against the pirates of phone privacy.

A Stealth Phone basically works on three levels:

  1. Checking and verification of connection between the cell phone and the network operator used
  2. Change of IMEI code (the univocal identification code of every mobile phones). When the IMEI changes actually it is as if you have got a new cell phone in your hands!
  3. Sending and receiving of encrypted text messages. This really provides a secure SMS communication channel.

In the light of what we just said, you should not be surprised that this awesome mobile phone has quickly become a standard in security of corporate, military, political or private mobile communications. So what more do you want from a smart device wich also warns you in time to block any cell phone tapping attempt?

How to prevent wireless data theft from your contactless credit card (and not only)

contactless-payment-card

If you are used to pay for your purchases with a contactless card, be careful: your money could be in a serious danger! The blame is on the new electronic pickpockets of contactless cards, who are skilled in money data theft from wireless card without you noticing it. Does that sound like a fake? Read the following words and judge by yourself.

That’s what usually happens: let’s see, you are in queue in a very crowded place, for e.g. at the supermarket, on the tram, at the airport… Suddenly someone approaches you. Due to habitual circumstances you would never imagine the guy behind you actually wants to steal money from your contactless card by using his RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) scanner, similar to a POS device. A scanner of this kind is really able to retrieve data from any credit or debit card when placed at a certain distance; the same case may concern those smartphones equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, more frequently used to make wireless payments. What is the result? Well, the next time you’ll draw up your account statement you will realize you have been irredeemably stolen!

If you’re still not convinced of that watch the video below.

 

At risk not only payment cards

As you have seen in the video, not only payment cards are at risk. Data fraud and identity theft can be also interest many other personal items such as passports, access control badges, digital identity cards, or coded keys. However the risk of wireless theft becomes very significant when you are in an unsafe busy place.

A practical ultimate solution

anti-rfid-protection-sleevesOne of the most effective solutions to counteract the contactless card piracy is using of special anti-RFID sleeves, such as those provided by Endoacustica Europe, the only ones working like a real Faraday cage. Just think they are able to shield the contactless card chip reading. The protection of your payment card or digital document thus becomes almost total, avoiding any anxiety or worrying. The mentioned sleeves are available in many shapes and colors and are also made of special non-foldable material, customizable with your personal or corporate logo.

Worrying escalation of cyber crime around the world. Which are the most affected economical sectors?

cyber-crime

According to the Global Threat Intelligence Report 2017 of NTT Security Group, dealing with the cybercrime trend analysis, in recent years the cyber piracy concerning companies has been increased somewhat. Which are the most affected economical sectors? First of all finance and public administration with a 14% per head of total. Then we find manufacturing companies (13%), retail (11%), education and business (10%), non-profit (7%) technology, health and gaming (5%), transport and insurance (2%). In the end, hospitality and recreation with the 1%.

The report in question is related on the monitoring of thousands of business companies owned by the group which detected over 3.5 trillion logs and 6.2 billion attacks led against companies. The three most affected nations are the United States (63%), Britain (4%), and China (3%), hit by attacks of phishing, email fraud, DDoS and social engineering operations. However the most worrying thing is the total number of attacks: 6 billion a year, which would be roughly 16 million and over daily! A foolish situation which would destabilize even the most pessimistic security analyst.

Thus anyone should reflect on the importance of protecting its own company. But CEOs and business executives are not only worried about computer security. Let’s consider for instance the case of the unauthorized mobile phone tapping. In fact this practice is equally growing all over the world and is used to steal very important corporate informations. Anyway there are some special mobile phones able to protect calls and messages by means of call encryption, or by attempting alarm tapping notices as well as to change IMEI code, as effectively happens about the untraceable GSM and undetectable mobile phone Stealth Phone.

In short, if your company is sailing in these dangerous waters, do not alarm: you can always get out of it adopting effective counter-surveillance instruments. Before it’s too late.
