growing number of mobile devices are in circulation across India. With this, comes a new form of cyber attack and compromise. Aatreya provides mobile device penetration testing to help keep the attackers out!
Aatreya has broad experience in security testing mobile devices. Whether it is a cell phone or tablet based resource, Aatreya security consultants have a solid foundation in identifying vulnerability and exposure in both devices and applications alike.
The programming language used to develop many iPhone and iPad applications is objective C, where as the Android platform is Linux based and uses Java. Both Apple iOS and Android are effectively miniature computers, and consequently the applications that run on them are similar to conventional thick clients or web based applications.
Many of the mobile applications use web based functions which open them up to Cross Site Scripting (XSS), Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) and session hijacking attacks. These attacks are being mutated on mobile applications to capture user displays, keystrokes and to perform tap jacking, (similar to click jacking) and screen smudging attacks. Similarly, iOS can be susceptible to buffer overflow attacks, and attackers can decompile code to identify security flaws and weaknesses.
