i just dont see any usefulness to what could be done anytime, and if you

indeed. but as indicated, this system tried easy and known attacks
first (including checking for "su" on device without authorization.
did anyone click to give root to some strange app?)

only when the easy and known attacks failed did the more advanced
attacks take place. these were increasingly more interesting / novel
attacks.



but the method, is pathetically old, and, hiding behind some lame
android-root, as most of these ppl do... when i see them lever, linux, with
NO html, ill maybe like them abit :P~~

not sure what this means, but i like the idea of "NO html" ;)



meh.. so whats new... hijacking a phone botnet would be fun but,

not a botnet; a phone pilfering and surveillance network targeted at
Rio attendees.

a number of the attacks would only work and/or remain active while on
the MitM network - designed with limited scope and longevity.



i dont see
why would bother scanning for them.. when, i have and, theyre pretty
useless... well, maybe for android freaks...and, this is simple a root
exploit or, exoploit being levered, thru an LD

scanning for what? the intent was pretty clear and seemed entirely
useful to the attackers: pilfer data from phones, leverage pwnd phones
for surveillance within the conference / among attendees.
