Mobile Security News Update July 2011

ZIMTO (Zeus in the Mobile) hits Android. This was long overdue since Android now more or less is the strongest smartphone platform. See Axelle Apvrille blog post on Zimto for Android.

Android malware is really a rising trend (no secret there) but the malware gets more and more interesting. Mark Balanz discovered a malware that acts as an SMS relay. Such malware has interesting possibilities to say the least.

JailBreakMe 3.0 was released a couple of days ago, again a nice user-level jailbreak for all iOS devices ;-) There is a nice article from the people of the intrepidus group on how the jailbreak works. Reversing Jailbreakme.com 4.3.3.

Conferences are all covered as far as I know.
