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.)

Is asking about security protocols allowed. Xfinity tv will not allow me to mirror to my tv through the app. Security protocols prevent it for some reason. Is there a way around this ? If not it's no big deal
