In light of the seriousness of security, I want to keep this forum as clean as possible. I will be working harder in the future to do so.

What belongs:
Discussions of
~ of vulnerabilities & potential vulnerabilities, with detail.
~ of vulnerability research
~ of exploit development
~ of reverse engineering
~ of application security
~ of physical device security
~ of theoretical attacks/vulnerabilities, with detail.
~ any serious security matter
detailed guides on security matters
etc

What does NOT belong:
Copy pasted articles, with no linked source or citation
promotion of apps
promotion of services
simple how to guides (like how to use a VPN on Android)
Questions on how to unlock a device
etc

Absolutely no FUD, nor conspiracy theory posts will be allowed. Please include citations, or strong evidence when making a post that may appear to be FUD or a conspiracy theory type post.

If you have questions as to if a post is appropriate, please either ask in reply to this post, or PM me.

Bash bug
Hello, I just read this article on The Verge: http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/24/68...g-security-for

What could be the implications for Android users?

For example, my phone appears to be vulnerable, according to the test from the article.
I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Express GT-I8730 running latest CyanogenMod 11 (September 21) from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2#post53616202

Hope this one transcends the conspiracy level as I've not done any background research. Just wanted to share as it seems legitimate. Somewhat older but I guess still valid. Shouldn't all developers move to Replicant or at least close the backdoor mentioned in this article?

Would it be okay to cross-post an "I'm a dumbass, what do I do now" question here from http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-...ivs-s-t2927813 ?

tl;dr- I ran something as root that smells of malware, how do I recover from this? (Good news is that only my system and recovery were unlocked, not the other firmware parts.)
