FourFourSeconds ago, we reported on a bug that could be exploited by malware writers to remotely exploit the Apt security systems on a wide range of devices.
Today, we’re reporting a different type of exploit that’s even more dangerous.
Security analysts at the University of California, Berkeley have discovered that a piece of malware known as APT-20 could be embedded into devices that use Bluetooth to communicate with each other.
The bug, which was first spotted in May, allows the attacker to remotely compromise devices, including Android phones and laptops, by sending out malicious text messages.
It’s also a common way for hackers to attack the devices’ Bluetooth functionality, bypassing the Bluetooth chip on the device.
According to a report by the security firm Symantec, this particular attack vector is similar to previous versions of APT.
This particular variant of APK was first found in May and was also known as “APT2,” which stands for APT2-E.
The APT bug was first described by researchers at Trend Micro in March.
In addition to the bug described by Symantek, researchers also found that APT1 was also embedded in some phones, including the OnePlus One.
The Trend Micro researchers noted that the Aapt security system on the OnePlus 5T is vulnerable to this particular APT variant.
The researchers also discovered that the bug has a number of other flaws, including:The researchers’ research has now been publicly released and can be found in the APT Exploit Gallery .
In their analysis, the researchers have determined that the APT version of the vulnerability is vulnerable in both Android versions 4.1.2 and 4.2.
The bug has been exploited in two different ways.
In Android versions, the APK contains a file called APT_E.exe, which the researchers said is a copy of the code from the Android 4.0.3 Jelly Bean source code.
In the other way, the exploit code was used to exploit the bug on devices that don’t have Bluetooth.
According the researchers, the Android version 4.3.2 Android Nougat device can be targeted with this particular exploit code, which uses the Bluetooth protocol to send out the malicious text message.
The malware also targets the Ahta Touch smartcard reader, a device that has been used by Chinese hackers to gain access to the security systems of several Chinese telecom companies.
The Ahtan Touch smartcards are used to connect to the Huawei network, a popular Chinese internet company, and to store sensitive data on the servers.
“The malicious payload that targets the Huawei Touch smart cards in the AHTA Touch device is very similar to the previous APT exploit,” the researchers wrote.
“However, the current APT attack vector on the Huawei device has significantly changed from previous APK exploit code.”
“In addition to being able to remotely access the Huawei server and send out malicious messages, we found that the attackers also used this exploit to send malicious text to the device that connects to the server.”
Researchers say they believe the current version of APB has not been used in attacks on devices outside of China, which could have a number different reasons for not seeing the exploit.
The latest APT vulnerabilities could be a serious threat for security systems in the near future, and it’s important to take the security implications of this vulnerability seriously.
If you’re worried about your device’s security, here are a few things to keep in mind.
If you’ve been targeted by APT, don’t panic.
There’s no need to panic.
But don’t give up hope.
There are steps you can take to protect yourself.
The easiest way to protect your devices from APT attacks is to update them regularly.
Here’s how to do that.
