The Next Wave of Mobile Banking Threats Is Already Here
Mobile banking threats have been recently making an impact, both at the regional as well as
global levels. EventBot, the newly identified Android banking trojan, can be considered as a
forward leap in the evolution of mobile banking trojans. EventBot abuses Android’s
accessibility feature to access and steal valuable user information and system information. It
can also intercept SMS messages and bypass two-factor authentication mechanisms. But that
is not the only capability that makes it unique. It targets more than 200 different financial
applications like PayPal, Coinbase, Barclays, Santander UK, HSBC UK and many more., that
are commonly used in countries like the US, the UK, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, France,
Germany, Ireland, India, Austria, Australia, and Poland.
EventBot developers seem to be actively involved in its development, as there were four
different versions identified, each version bringing in new functionalities and obfuscation
techniques. This makes researchers believe that EventBot could become the next big mobile
threat. Besides the global threats like EventBot, a large number of mobile threats have been
recently observed, that are actively targeting financial institutions within a specific region.

with a highly unconventional function of inserting fake text messages into the Inbox of a
regular SMS app, along with the capability to intercept and send SMS to bypass One-TimePassword OTP based authentication.In order to prevent it, avoid downloading apps unknown
source and download apps only from the official app stores like Google Play. Pay attention to
permissions requested by apps, genuine apps should not be asking for access to SMS. Users
should also use a genuine anti-malware solution for mobile, and also keep an eye on the
changes in their devices, such as the decreased performance or battery life, which may indicate

: Does [nutritional content] or other predictor measure(s) of a cereal affect its price? We propose to research the effects of sugar content as predictor for the cost of breakfast cereal Our dependent variables will include sugar, calories and fiber content as the compare the recommended daily value. The independent variables will be generic brand cereals , non-generic brand cereals as how those manufacturers contrast with amounts of sugar, fiber and calorie. We will determine mean calories sugar and fiber per serving. Our sugar ranges respectively will be: Sugar 38 grams / day 25 grams/day Fiber ranges 20 grams /day Calories 2000/day
