April Meeting Topic: Smartphone Hacks and Attacks
A Demonstration of Current Threats to Mobile Devices
Presenter: Daniel Hoffman, SMobile Systems

Many operate under the assumption that threats to BlackBerry's, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Android and iPhone devices don't exist. With 2 of the top 3 BlackBerry infectors and 3 of the top 4 Windows Mobile infectors being spyware, that's exactly what the hackers want you to think. The goal of malware and attacks in general have changed from simply being disruptive, to being financially motivated, non-disruptive and stealthy. By showing actual, current exploits, see how users and enterprises who are waiting to experience an infection or data loss before implementing security software for their smarthphones are placing themselves into the unsavory position of unknowingly becoming exploited and having absolutely no security software to address that exploitation.
