Helo again stranger,
hehe, well, the old method was to use a fake html page to ask for some 'java
update' to view some non existent 'suuposedly' awesome, poster/pic/mvie.. on
myspace, this was written in VB but,, logged every email that clicked and,
this loaded an exe, in 2 days was 200 thousand boxes on one ircd.. this di
not last once the myspace found out.. but it was nonetheless, a BIG one...
and yes, i still have the ONLY src i know for this kind of trickter method..
it is VB :P hehe.
times are a changing... but, i see now what tyou mean... still, i just dont
know why people even INSTALL or, accept anything at a defcon meeting, ofc
someone will try to make some name, mining for data, is stealing an id
nowdays, so there would be GREat potential for one device, to connect to
some network, and rescan for other weak/known exploits... then you have an
army :)

but, intersting about 4G... i have not yet to see that haxd so, 1 point for
that but, thats prolly coz ui aint really been looking at that side of it
... and, kinda wish that some idiot would try and fool me at a defconz ....
it would be fun to watch tho... i still rember the gotse loading in corner
of pages....ahhh the old days....

nice writeup tho coderman, well researched article wich i even have to re
read :)
cheers
xd

i just dont see any usefulness to what could be done anytime, and if you
were silly enough to accept ASNY files direct dl at ANY  **COn, expect it
:P~

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.
