WhatsApp, Telegram Files Could be Hacked – ‘Media File Jacking’

What's App
Share

‘Media File Jacking’ is the new buzzword phrase that describes a security flaw and enables hackers to manipulate images and audio files on various platforms, and in this case ‘end-to-end encryption’ apps WhatsApp and Telegram on Android. Symantec’s Modern OS Security team explained ‘neither apps have any system in place to protect users from a Media File Jacking attack’.

“If the security flaw is exploited, a malicious attacker could misuse and manipulate sensitive information such as personal photos and videos, corporate documents, invoices, and voice memos,” wrote Software Engineer Alon Gat and Yair Amit, Vice-President and Chief Technology Officer, Modern OS Security, Symantec.

Image and payment manipulation are arguably the most damaging Media File Jacking threats. For example, in one of the most damaging Media File Jacking attacks, a malicious actor can manipulate an invoice sent by a vendor to a customer, to trick the customer into making a payment to an illegitimate account. As in the previous scenario, an app that appears to be legitimate but is in fact malicious, watches for PDF invoice files received via WhatsApp, then programmatically swaps the displayed bank account information in the invoice with that of the bad actor. The customer receives the invoice, which they were expecting to begin with, but has no knowledge that it’s been altered. By the time the trick is exposed, the money may be long gone. To make matters worse, the invoice hack could be broadly distributed in a non-targeted way, looking for any invoices to manipulate, affecting multiple victims who use IM apps like WhatsApp to conduct business, explained the team.

We detail below how to mitigate these threats:

Sixth New Assignment Announced ‘Recognition’ for our Forthcoming Book ‘Away with Words’

In January we announced a brand new Assignment section to TheAppWhisperer offering an opportunity for mobile photographers and artists to enter into a monthly assignment on a subject matter that we have individually crafted. This new section is another ground breaking topic within our community. Like so many of the sections within TheAppWhisperer, has not been done before, in this way.

Photographic images have reflected and shaped culture since the inception of the medium and this is non more so apparent than shown within mobile photography and art. The power of mobile art today is inevitably entangled with the diverse tolerances that cultures have in relation to photographs and the vast divergence within different cultures too. Over the past ten years of mobile photography and art we have all experienced great controversies in the world and still, they ensue. Mobile photography is inextricably linked to personal accountability and each member of our mobile community represents a force to relation to our continually changing cultural values, whether by challenging them or reflecting them; photography is co-creating them.

At the end of each month, we will gather the images that have been contributed and select one for an immersive critique. I will personally write this with over 1000 words. Each critique will identify the elements, contextual meaning of these elements, interpretation and conclusion. Each critique will then be published not only on TheAppWhisperer, the world’s most popular mobile photography & art website but also throughout our vast social media channels. At the end of the year, we will publish a book featuring all of these critiques. As you can appreciate each critique will take some time to create well, so we ask, if you would like to take part to donate £10 per image that you submit (there is no limit to the number of images you submit), we feel this is fair. To do this, just select the appropriate allowance at the bottom of our donation section at the end of this post.

We have just published our fourth chapter entitled ‘Beauty and Awe’ with Becky Menzies’ image. To read the previous published chapters, with Rita Colantonio, Valeria Cammeria and Peter Wilkin, please go here.

Today we are announcing our sixth Assignment with the topic entitled ‘Recognition’. Creating art, photography or otherwise, is an outlet to express our emotions. This sixth assignment can be interpreted in your art literally or metaphorically, or any other interpretations you may draw, all entries are welcome. This assignment window will close on 29 July 2019, when we will announce the new one. To take part please send your image(s) to my email address – joanne@theappwhisperer.com and/or to Instagram with this hashtag #tawrecognition. Please send £10 per image to enter this assignment via the donation table below.
