Android Found Vulnerable To Heartbleed Bug

android_heartbleed.png

It seems every day since its April 7th public release date, more information is coming to light on the Open SSL "Heartbleed" vulnerability. "Heartbleed" is the name given to a flaw found in certain versions of the OpenSSL software. Lookout Security, a major provider of Android security software, said Android phones and devices running version 4.1.1 are open to attack. While this is an older versions of Android, a little more than 30% of all Android devices are still on version 4.1.1.

The Android exploit works by injecting malicious traffic into the web browser and pulling information from the memory of any other open browser tabs. This can include secure usernames and passwords for sites like e-mail and online banking. Fortunately the way Android is developed there is no way to pull information from outside the browser, but this still opens up tens of thousands of handsets to attack.

Lookout has developed a free Android application, Heartbleed Detector, which users can install on ther Android devices. The app will scan for vulnerabilities related to Heartbleed and let you know if your device is at risk. It is recommended that anybody with Android devices running version 4.1.1 use alternative means of logging into secure sites until updates are available that fix this bug.

More information will be updated as it becomes available.

On April 7th there was a serious security flaw discovered with OpenSSL and the problem is being called “Heartbleed”. Some major companies have been affected by the security flaw including Google, AWS and Rackspace, which plan to release patches quickly to fix the issue. Any company that uses OpenSSL to terminate SSL connections could find themselves facing issues with Heartbleed. To be proactive to the growing news we’ve received statements from Peplink to inform customers that their routing platforms aren’t affected by the Heartbleed OpenSSL Flaw:

Sprint to shut down WiMAX network by end of 2015

 

sprint_logo_white.jpg

 

Sprint was the first official carrier to launch 4G service but opted to go with WiMAX instead of LTE. Unfortunately for Sprint WiMAX ultimately failed due to poor in building coverage and LTE on lower frequency bands took preference by the majority of consumers. Recently Sprint filed a 10G form with the Securities and Exchange Commission stating they’ll shut down 4G WiMAX by the end of 2015. “As a result of the Clearwire Acquisition, we expect to continue to migrate from Clearwire’s wireless broadband technology to LTE technology through the deployment of Network Vision utilizing the 2.5GHz spectrum acquired,” Sprint said in the paperwork, also mentioning they’ll be shutting down 4,300 cell sites that won’t be needed after the switch to 4G LTE.

DynDNS Free Service Shutdown

 

dyndns_logo.jpg

 

Dyn, Inc has offered DynDNS for several years and announced on Monday that their free dynamic DNS service will be disabled on May 7th, 2014. Newer customers won’t notice a change because DynDNS has been charging new customers for dynamic hosting for the last year, but grandfathered older customers that had previously signed up for free accounts. Below is a copy of the notice that is going out to long time customers still getting free DynDNS service:

“Subject: Important info about the future of your Dyn account

To our Dyn free hostname users:

For the last 15 years, all of us at Dyn have taken pride in offering you and millions of others a free version of our Dynamic DNS Pro product. What was originally a product built for a small group of users has blossomed into an exciting technology used around the world.

That is why with mixed emotions we are notifying you that in 30 days, we will be ending our free hostname program. This change in the business will allow us to invest in our customer support teams, Internet infrastructure, and platform security so that we can continue to strive to deliver an exceptional customer experience for our paying customers.

We would like to invite you to upgrade to VIP status for less than $20 -- a 25% discount good for any package of Remote Access (formerly DynDNS Pro). By doing so, you'll have access to customer support, additional hostnames, and more.

Here's how you get this done in two easy steps:

- Login to account.dyn.com.

- Click here to add Remote Access to your cart at the 25% off VIP rate. The discount will be applied upon checkout.

We thank you for your usage of Dyn through the years, and hope to continue to support you through Dyn Remote Access or other products for years to come. Visit our FAQ page or this blog post for more information.”

DynDNS was one of the most popular services for 3G mobile customers to route to IP Camera systems with a Dynamic public facing IP. Now that most customers have switched to 4G LTE dynamic hosting simply didn’t work because of the private (10.) range assigned to wireless devices. Still, for customers on older 3G accounts this means they’ll need to start spending money on DynDNS to continue using it, or look at a free alternative like noip.com for their routing needs.
