The Judy Malware hits Millions of Android phones, Are you SAFE?

Judy, an auto-clicking adware, has been found on 41 apps by a Korean company.It has been found to be infecting millions of Android smartphones across the world just like the WannaCry ransomeware holding computers at ransom.
                              chef_judy                        
According to security solutions firm Check Point, the malware -- Judy -- uses infected devices to generate large amounts of fraudulent clicks on advertisements, generating revenues for the developers behind these apps.
Unlike other malwares it is not stealing your data, but it is controlling the device to carry out fraudulent activities. Judy gets control of infected devices and relies on the communication with its Command and Control server (C&C) for its operation. In addition to the clicking activity, Judy displays a large amount of advertisements, which in some cases leave users with no option but clicking on the ad itself. Although most apps have positive ratings, some of the users have noticed and reported Judy’s suspicious activities, as seen in the images below:

How long as the Judy Malware been on the Google Play Store?

Judy malware has been on the Play Store for a long time, a year to be precise. Check Point found the adware on at least 41 apps, which have been developed by a Korean company 'Kiniwini' registered on Google Play as ENISTUDIO corp. The company develops mobile apps for both Android and iOS platforms. It is mentioned on the Google Play Store as ENISTUDIO corp.
“The malicious apps reached an enormous spread between 4.5 million and 18.5 million downloads,” reads Check Point’s blog post.

What is Google doing about Judy Malware? Do these to protect your Android device and data? 

Check Point Research made a list of 41 apps which have the malware. If you have any of those apps listed above, you have to remove them immediately.  Though Google is removing infected apps from the Play Store, it is important you take other measures to protect your smartphone:
• Use an anti-virus. Though Google Play Store has a mechanism in place to check for malicious apps, even the search giant misses out on scanning malware sometimes (as in this case). So, it is imperative you invest in a good anti-virus.
• Keep your device updated. Check if your device is up-to-date with the latest software version as well as security patches.
• Always browse an unsecured network via VPN.
• Before downloading an app, check for permissions it is asking for. Remember, your privacy is at risk, each time you download a new app. If you are not comfortable with granting permissions to certain things like contacts or camera or mic, or think the app doesn’t need access to these, simply don’t download the app. 

Though Google is removing infected apps from the Play Store, it is important you take measures to protect your smartphone now!.

Intel Features the new Core i9, a Product of its new core X series

Intel recently announced the new Core X-series, the company's lead series of  desktop processors. With the introduction of this series, Intel has also introduced the new Core i9 series of processors.
                                       intel_Core X-series
Based on the new X299/LGA2066 "Basin Falls" platform, the Core X-series has nine different products, of which five are being announced today and four will be arriving later. Customers will have a choice from 4 cores to 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 cores all the way at the top, making it one of the most diverse range on the market. Almost all models will have Intel's Hyper-Threading, thereby doubling the thread count (the thread count is the number of individual application threads which can be executing simultaneously on the CPU itself. Without any additional or special hardware, this is always equal to the core count)

N.B: Each individual application running in an operating system is either single-threaded or multi-threaded (think of each thread as a "sub-application"). Single threaded applications require just one thread to run on the CPU, whereas multi-threaded applications have many sub-threads running simultaneously. Additional cores, or hyper-threading, allows more application threads to simultaneously run at once.
                                intel_Core X-series
The nine processors are split into Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X. At the bottom of the pack are the two Kaby Lake-X parts, the Core i5-7640X and the Core i7-7740X.

The Core i5-7640X has 4 cores with no Hyper-Threading. It has 4.0GHz base clock speed and Turbo Boosts up to 4.2GHz. There's 6MB L3 cache, 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and two-channel DDR4-2666 memory support. It has a TDP of 112W and is priced at $242.

The Core i7-7740X has 4 cores and 8 threads with HT. It has 4.3GHz base clock speed and Turbo Boosts up to 4.5GHz. There's 8MB L3 cache, 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and two-channel DDR4-2666 memory support. It has a TDP of 112W and is priced at $339.
Moving on to the Skylake-X series, the base Core i7-7740X has 6 cores and 12 threads with HT. It has 3.5GHz base clock speed and Turbo Boosts up to 4.0GHz. There's 8.25MB L3 cache, 28 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and four-channel DDR4-2400 memory support. It has a TDP of 140W and is priced at $389.

The Core i7-7820X has 8 cores and 16 threads with HT. It has 3.6GHz base clock speed and Turbo Boosts up to 4.3GHz. It also has support for Intel Turbo Boost 3.0, which boosts the best core of the bunch to, in this case, 4.5GHz. There's 11MB L3 cache, 28 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and four-channel DDR4-2666 memory support. It has a TDP of 140W and is priced at $599.

Lastly, there is the Core i9-7900X, which has 10 cores and 20 threads with HT. It has 3.3GHz base clock speed, 4.3GHz Turbo Boost 2.0 clock speed and 4.5GHz Turbo Boost 3.0 clock speed. There's 13.75MB L3 cache, 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes, and four-channel DDR4-2666 memory support. It has a TDP of 140W and is priced at $999.

There are four more parts left, the i9-7920X, i9-7940X, i9-7960X, and i9-7980XE, however, not a lot of information has been revealed about them. All we know for now is that they have 12/24, 14/28, 16/32, and 18/36 core/thread count, and that they are priced at $1199, $1399, $1699, and $1999, respectively.
Further information and availability should be announced this week.

How To USE IMEI analyzer online and on Android (APK) For Free Browsing.

IMEI Analyzer is a powerful tool for IMEI Analyzing, IMEI Checking and IMEI Calculating
IMEI both ONLINE and OFFLINE. It stands for International Mobile Station Equipment Identity. The full IMEI number is 15 digits in length. You can obtain the IMEI by opening the phone's dialpad and enter *#06#. Or you can see it in the label on the back of the phone, behind the battery.
                                     imei_analyzer
- IMEI Checking:
Check whether the given IMEI (15-digit number) is valid or not by calculating the Check Digit (using Luhn algorithm) and then comparing with the Check Digit of the given IMEI. There is also the option that allow you to fetch data (Brand and Phone Model) from the popular website online.
- IMEI Calculating:
You can enter the IMEI without the Check Digit (only 14 digits) and this app will calculate the Check Digit by using Luhn algorithm.
- IMEI Analyzing:
Breakdown the IMEI into the following parts:
• Type Allocation Code (TAC)
• Reporting Body Identifier (RBI)
• Mobile Equipment Type Identifier
• Final Assembly Code (FAC)
• Serial Number
• Check Digit.

How To USE Imei analyzer on your Android Phone



Firstly, you have to download and install IMEI Analyzer.

           imei_analyzer_calculator  imei_analyzer_app

Then you can now paste the 15 digits IMEI in the space provided. So if you want to Analyze or generate a valid IMEI, you will have to delete the last digit of the 15 digits IMEI and it will now be 14 digits then tap on ANALYZE.
Then look below, your IMEI will be analysed and the phone IMEI information will also be displayed which means your FULL IMEI will be a complete 15 digits but if it says "IMEI INVALID" or "IMEI NOT CORRECT", it means your IMEI number is not complete. If your IMEI number is valid, it will say " IMEI is correct".
So you can then copy out the 15 digits and Tweak or change it. This is useful for using another device's data plan on your Android phone and getting free data bonuses.

Your Phone's IMEI number can be checked by dialing *#06#
Something special About Analyzing Imei Offline (Via Mobile App) is that it can generate a valid IMEI from the first 14 digits, by adding a valid check digit automatically. That is the last digit of an Imei.

How To Analyze IMEI online using IMEI.info calculator


• First, go to the imei info website and paste your IMEI number in the space provided.
                            IMEI_ANALYZER_ONLINE
• Then you will see A CHECK DIGIT of the IMEI you pasted at the right hand side, that is the analyzed number. The14DIGITS IMEI on the left and the check digits make up a valid IMEI for use on any MTK android device.

Kodi App,VLC and other Media Players Now Prone to Hack by subtitles

Media players like Kodi App, PopcornTime, Stremio, and VLC, have been prone to malicious ‘attack by subtitles’. As reported by Check Point.
                          hacked by subtitles
According to the researchers, things look pretty severe:
“We estimate there are approximately 200 million video players and streamers that currently run the vulnerable software, making this one of the most widespread, easily accessed and zero-resistance vulnerability reported in recent years. (…) Each of the media players found to be vulnerable to date has millions of users, and we believe other media players could be vulnerable to similar attacks as well”.

While this is a serious breach in itself, what the Check Point announcement really picks up on is how this is an “overlooked” and relatively simple attack. As such attacks usually rely on the user doing something to initiate the malicious code. However, this attack relies on the code being initialized when subtitles accompanying video content are launched by the media player. The difference being that a user does not need to be tricked into activating a suspicious file or clicking through a link,Brilliant right?
  Starting a video which makes use of subtitles, can easily activate the code. The weight of the user’s involvement in this particular technique, is minimal compared to the traditional methods used. Likewise, even anti-virus and other security-driven software might also be prone to overlooking such files due to their generally safe nature.
                             Hacked in translation

What is the root cause?

The attack vector relies heavily on the poor state of security in the way various media players process subtitle files and the large number of subtitle formats. To begin with, there are over 25 subtitle formats in use, each with unique features and capabilities. Media players often need to parse together multiple subtitle formats to ensure coverage and provide a better user experience, with each media player using a different method. Like other, similar situations which involve fragmented software, this results in numerous distinct vulnerabilities.

Damage: By conducting attacks through subtitles, hackers can take complete control over any device running them. From this point on, the attacker can do whatever he wants with the victim’s device, whether it is a PC, a smart TV, or a mobile device. The potential damage the attacker can inflict is endless, ranging anywhere from stealing sensitive information, installing ransomware, mass Denial of Service attacks, and much more.

 Below is a video demonstration of how the attack works:



FIX:<></>
Platforms Update:<></>

PopcornTime– Created a Fixed version, however it is not yet available to download in the official website.<></>
The fixed version can be manually downloaded via the following link: 

Kodi App– Officially fixed and available to download on their website.

VLC– Officially fixed and available to download on their website.
Stremio– Officially Fixed and avilable to download on their website.

The Nokia 3310 Returns: Now available in the UK

The new Nokia 3310 is now available to buy in the UK, where it costs £50.
This new version of the 17-year-old phone caused a storm when it was announced in February, and Nokia has been riding a huge wave of fond memories ever since.    The Nokia 3310 The Nokia 3310
However, Here’s what you should know about The new Nokia 3310 before buying it.
Snake II is one of the features that made the original handset such an icon, and it is nowhere to be found on the new 3310. Instead the phone comes with a much more modern version of the game, with bright colours, obstacles and even bendy turns.
Nokia has altered the phone’s main keys too, with the large blue button, the ‘C’ button and the arrow keys replaced by a square-shaped central keypad, bordered by large ‘call’ and ‘end call’ buttons. 
If you’re considering buying the new 3310 in order to re-capture those warm, nostalgic memories from 2000, you may end up disappointed. 

Decline of SMS

The 3310 is being marketed as the perfect weekend phone or one that’s great for festivals, thanks to its tough build and long-lasting battery, which should see it last around a week between charges.
Though most modern smartphones take nano-SIM cards, you can still use your SIM in the 3310 – which takes micro-SIM cards – with the help of an adapter, and text away.
Unfortunately, not that many people use SMS anymore. WhatsApp and iMessage are the messaging platforms of choice these days, and you can’t run them on the 3310. That essentially means that, unless they know they need to contact you on SMS only, you might not receive any messages from your friends and family while using the 3310. 
That’s great if you fancy something simple, but not ideal in an emergency or if your friends’ plans change at the last minute. 

Storage

The Nokia 3310 now has a 2-megapixel camera around the back, which is capable of capturing grainy, yet strangely satisfying, pictures. 
However, it offers very little internal storage, which you’ll fill up with less than ten pictures. Unless you don’t want any images on the phone at all, you’ll definitely need to buy more storage.
The good news is that microSD cards are pretty cheap these days, and the 3310 lets you expand storage by up to 32GB.

Price

It may seem strange to criticise a £50 phone for being too expensive, but Nokia happens to also be selling a device called the Nokia 150
It’s really similar to the 3310 in terms of functionality, but costs just £30. However, Nokia knows full well that the 150 is nowhere near as attractive, playful or distinctive as the 3310.
The Nokia 3310 has a story behind it, and that’s its main selling point. If you have a spare £50 burning a hole in your pocket, buy it.

13 Great Tools To schedule instagram posts

According to AdWeek, 28% of time spent online is on social networking. Here are some instances when it is appropriate to schedule Instagram posts ahead of time.


Conferences: If you’re attending or running a conference, schedule out a few updates to post during the conference, such as Instagram videos that pertain to certain sessions. Record special messages to your followers to tell them what you’re doing and that you will share more information afterwards.

Travel: Will you be on an airplane without WiFi or traveling to a location that doesn’t have the best Internet connection? Record videos or share photos of some of the places at your destination. To get your followers involved, share the location and ask for recommendations in the comments. When you get to a reliable connection, respond to your audience.
Large Blocks of Down Time: If you know you’re taking a break from your Instagram audience for a few hours (at the gym, a doctor’s appointment, taking an exam, or meeting), don’t leave your audience hanging. schedule Instagram posts so you can continue to add value for your followers. Then schedule them on Instagram.

Content Promotion: Pull out snippets from your blog posts or product you are promoting  to use in an Instagram update. This is similar to a drip campaign, but done through Instagram. The goal is to provide a valuable piece of information for your audience and to drive them back to your website to read the full article.

The top thirteen are detailed below.
As a word of caution: if you manage more than one Instagram post, always double check you are signed into the correct Instagram account before clicking Share within the Instagram app.

1. Buffer

                        buffer_social_media
An incredibly intuitive but powerful app, Buffer allows you to automatically schedule your social media updates to all the major social networks (including Instagram, obviously) in advance. If you’re using the free plan, you can schedule up to 10 posts for each social network. If you want more, you’ll have to upgrade.
If you find an image you want to post to Instagram, you can schedule this via Buffer’s web app, mobile app (iOS, Android), or Chrome extension).
Upload your photo or video to Buffer, write out your caption, add some popular emojis and hashtags, then schedule the post. When the time to post comes around, you’ll receive a notification from the Buffer app on your smartphone. Hit Open in Instagram, and the image along with the caption will be copied to Instagram ready for you to edit, tag people, and post.

2. Publish (Formerly TakeOff)

                     Publish_instagram_posts
With over 1 million users, Publish (free on Web, iOS, Android, and as a Chrome extension) works in a similar way to Buffer, but you can only schedule to Instagram and Twitter.
Once you’ve prepared a post in Publish and selected which accounts you want the post to be sent to (Twitter and/or Instagram), you’re then given three options. You can either publish the post now, schedule it for a specific time, or have Publish pick a time for you. Publish claims its automatically-picked times are geared toward when most of your followers are online.
When the time comes to post, you’ll be sent a reminder on your phone (provided you have installed the app). Click on the reminder, and Instagram will open, displaying your image. Your caption will have been copied to your clipboard ready to paste to Instagram.

3. Later (formerly Latergramme)

                  Later_instagram
Later is a platform more aimed at the professional marketer or Instagram power-user than the layperson.
On the free and paid accounts, you can bulk upload tons of media at once (including from Dropbox or Google Drive) ready to deal with later. Note that you can only schedule 30 posts per month on the free account.
From within Later, you can also search for other Instagram posts based on username or hashtag. Any posts you like can be saved to your media list, ready to be scheduled on your own account (get the authors permission first!)
Once you’ve scheduled your posts on the visual web calendar, including crafting a caption designed to increase likes and comments, you’ll receive a notification on your phone when it’s time to publish. You can then post the image via Instagram.

With the Latergramme mobile app you can create and schedule Instagram posts.
Where Latergramme differs from ScheduGram is that instead of scheduling and posting updates to Instagram for you, they will remind you when it’s time to post.
It’s then up to you to approve and post them from their web app or mobile app.

4. Hootsuite

                     hootsuite_for_instagram
A powerful social media management suite, Hootsuite is used by over 10 million professionals. With their free account, you can manage up to three profiles, including Instagram. If you need to manage more accounts than that, you’ll have to upgrade to the $10 per month plan.

When the scheduled time comes, click on the push notification. This will open the Hootsuite app where you can make any final changes to the post. Then click Open in Instagram to copy that information across to the Instagram app. The image will display automatically, the caption will be copied to your phone’s clipboard ready to paste. make any final adjustments (such as applying a filter), then publish the post.

You can also try Mass Planner for five days to see if it meets your needs.

11. Autogrammer

                           autogrammer_for_instagram
One last Instagram scheduler is Autogrammer.
Autogrammer provides similar functionality to the other Instagram scheduling tools mentioned.
With Autogrammer, you can:
Schedule your Instagram posts
Manage multiple accounts
Edit photos (crop, filter, rotate, color correct)
Bulk upload images
Autogrammer costs $19 per month per Instagram account, which can add up quickly if you need to schedule updates to multiple Instagram accounts,
One thing that they don’t do is let you upload videos.
If Instagram videos are important to your business, you might want to look at some of the other tools such as ScheduGram or Latergramme as they let you do more on Instagram.
Autogrammer is $19 per month per Instagram account.
There is a 7-day trial of Autogrammer if you want to test out the Instagram tool to see if it meets your needs.

12. Sprout Social
                      sproutsocial_instagram_scheduler
Sprout Social. Makes it easy to upload your image, finalize your content and schedule it. Simply schedule your post from Sprout, and when it’s time to post you’ll receive a push notification from the mobile app.
When you get the notification, tap the “Share on Instagram” mobile button to send the post to the native Instagram app. There you simply paste the caption (which is automatically copied to your clipboard after you tap to share) and make your final edits to the post.

13. Busy

                            busy_instagram_scheduler                   
Instagram publishing for agencies & professionals. Upload your media and schedule a time — it does the rest.
Schedule months ahead, or make last-minute changes — in real-time. Our calendar gives you a weekly overview of what you have planned.
You simply drag photos or videos off your media pool right onto the calendar, type a caption and your post is scheduled.

I’ve tested some of the apps mentioned in this article, and they all worked like a charm. Which you choose to use will of course depend on your budget, how much of an Instagram-power user you are, and how many social media profiles you want to manage.

Android users can now Browse websites free with chrome without internet access: here's how

                               Google_chrome_android

• Chrome for Android now lets you save entire websites for reading later.
• It is perfect for people who want to read where a connection isn't available, like on the subway.

Google released an update for its  Android chrome browser users on Monday that allows them to save entire Websites in Chrome for reading later.

With just one single long press, you can save a site and then read it when you're offline or you run out of data or free wifi access , up in a plane, or anywhere else where you're far from a network.

• First make sure you have the latest version of Chrome from the Google Play Store.
  
• Next, open up Chrome and head to a website with a list of stories you might want to read later, like www.digitalbog.com.
