Mobile phone security risks

 

  • Phishing

 

Phishing refers to that criminals lure recipients to give sensitive information (such as user name, password, account ID or credit card details) by sending a large number of fraudulent spam, SMS and instant messaging messages claiming to come from banks or other well-known institutions, and use these information to fake victims for fraudulent financial transactions, so as to obtain economic benefits.

 

  • Trojan virus

 

Trojan virus is a hacker tool based on remote control. It usually disguises itself as a package, compressed file, picture, video and other forms to lure users to download and install through web pages, e-mail and other channels. If users open such Trojan horse programs, users' mobile phones and other electronic devices will be controlled by criminals who write Trojan horse programs, As a result, information files are modified or stolen, and electronic account funds are stolen.

 

  • Pseudo base station

 

Pseudo base stations are generally composed of hosts and laptops. Criminals can search for mobile phone card information within a certain range around the equipment through pseudo base stations, impersonate any mobile phone number and forcibly send short messages such as fraud and advertising to users' mobile phones through base stations disguised as operators.

 

  • Information disclosure

 

At present, the security protection ability of some small and medium-sized websites is weak and vulnerable to hacker attacks. Therefore, the user names and passwords of many registered users are leaked. If the user's payment account is set with the same user name and password, it is very easy to embezzle.

 

  • Illegal software intrusion

 

Because mobile phones belong to individuals and are connected to the Internet, various illegal software may be installed unknowingly in the process of browsing the web and downloading applications. Some unscrupulous manufacturers automatically implant their backdoor software in the background during the process of installing mobile phone applications. These software steal and eavesdrop data information in the background unknowingly, and users do not know it, The data may have been obtained, analyzed and used.

 

  • Confidentiality is not guaranteed

 

Data security and confidentiality are not guaranteed. Generally, when using mobile applications, people are used to setting automatic login. In this way, once the mobile phone is used or lost by others, internal data or confidential information will undoubtedly be leaked.

 

  • The scope of propagation cannot be controlled

 

Because the mobile phone has the characteristics of mobile, the communication signal is very unstable. All mobile applications generally download the system data to the mobile device to save, so as to realize the consistency of the system. In this way, the documents, materials, approval documents, etc. that can only be circulated internally may be spread to any place due to the mobile phone.

 

  • Many system vulnerabilities

 

Mobile phone operating systems have many vulnerabilities and defects. Therefore, mainstream operating systems such as Android and IOS will launch a large version of the upgrade plan in less than a year. Mobile APP generally cannot be modified and updated in time. If there are security vulnerabilities, it will cause losses to information security.
