Flappy Bird Fake Versions Popping Up on Android Market

Flappy Bird

Be alerted, your child’s most recent favorite mobile game “Flappy Bird” has been pulled from the market by it’s developer, Doug Nguyen.  Since the original version has been pulled down from the market, malicious versions of this app have been created and added to the Android market to potentially exploit users.

These fake versions of “Flappy Bird” have been known to send messages to premium numbers, causing unwanted charges to your phone billing statements.  An article published by CNET further describes the vulnerability of the fake versions of this game and talks to various security experts about the impact that the malicious versions have made.  Click the link to read CNET’s article titled “Squawk!

Internet Security with Computer Forensic Expert

Check out the video below for more information on how to stay secure from this ‘ransomware’ Internet virus.


Learning about Internet threats with WIVB

This WIVB story, reported by Jordan Williams, started with a local man that was victim to a cyber attack that appeared to take control of his personal laptop.   A FBI Buffalo representative and DIGITS LLC’s Director of Computer Forensics and Investigations both provided feedback from the “ransomware” attack.  It is very important to make sure that you are aware of these type of cyber attacks.  Both representatives reinforced that it is important to call to shut down your computer right away and call a security expert, like DIGITS LLC, if you fall victim from a computer virus similar to described here.

Vulnerability Assessment in Response to Cyber Attacks

Vulnerability Assessment - web

DIGITS LLC offers a complete suite of vulnerability assessment services that enable companies to identify critical security threats.

DIGITS LLC’s President and CEO, Michael McCartney, explains that “Congressman Chris Collins, Chairman of the Small Business Subcommittee on Health and Technology, outlined statistics that show that nearly 60 percent of small businesses will close within months after a cyber-attack. A recent report shows nearly 20 percent of all cyber-attacks are targeting small firms with less than 250 employees.”

In response to this alarming trend, DIGITS LLC released a complete suite of vulnerability assessment services that assist companies to identify critical security threats that may expose their data to an unauthorized third party.

McCartney continues to explain “Many companies are poorly equipped to take on the task of identifying their infrastructure pain-points and therefore, find themselves at a high risk for cyber-attacks and data breach.”

DIGITS LLC’s experts leverage their decades of information technology, computer security and investigative experience to assist their clients in identifying security vulnerabilities and help them develop a road map for remediating those threats.  DIGITS LLC provides a 3rd party security assessment and validation that follows a proven methodology and leverages industry best practices.  These types of assessments also reduce unauthorized access, data exfiltration and data manipulation as well as assist companies to comply with regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA / HITECH and NIST.

Examples of the services provided include: External Network Perimeter Vulnerability Assessment, Internal Network Vulnerability Assessment, Active Directory Reviews, WLAN Assessments, VoIP Assessments, OS Patch Management Assessment, Device Configuration Management Review, and Source Code Review of Company Developed Applications.
