    Thumbs up MITM attack study on Smartphones

    Hi Group,

    This is my first posting here. I hope you will like it.

    "SMobile has released a detailed report on research indicating that smartphone users are just as susceptible to man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks as PC users. This report details the results of attempts to produce MITM attacks to determine whether it is possible to intercept SSL encrypted communications between various smartphone devices and servers. Of the devices that were tested, each of the major smartphone operating systems appeared to lack the ability to natively detect and defend against MITM attacks, allowing the testing team to intercept sensitive information that should have been encrypted via SSL."

    This is the quick intro to the study we did and it can be found at :

    " Well I cannot post the link here. So I will mention the site name where you can download it from: SMobile Systems GTC blog"

    Backtrack 4 pre release was used as the attack machine. So thought of sharing the results with the Backtrack community.
    Let me know your views.

    Thanks for sharing Ronny,
    I moved your thread to the General IT section since your study is not a tutorial. Also added the link for you.
    Cheers
