Bluebox Security Scanner

Bluebox Security Scanner


July 2014: Now includes scanning for Fake ID vulnerability!

The Bluebox Security Scanner will scan your device to determine:
- If your system is vulnerable or patched to any of the "Fake ID" or "Master Key" security flaws affecting most Android devices
- If your system settings allow 'Untrusted Sources' application installs
- If any installed application on your device is trying to maliciously take advantage of any of the 'Master Key' security flaws

Further details of the Android "Fake ID" and "Master Key" security flaws are available at:
- http://bluebox.com/technical/android-fake-id-vulnerability/
- http://www.bluebox.com/blog/technical/uncovering-android-master-key-that-makes-99-of-devices-vulnerable/


Effectively addressing a vulnerability requires three steps:
1) Google produces a generic code fix
2) Android phone manufacturers then incorporate that fix into a firmware update for various phones
3) Carriers then distribute the final update, which ensures your phone is safe

As regards Fake ID, Google has provided the generic code fix to the phone manufacturers who are working with the carriers to distribute the updates. This scanner will help track when that finally happens. Alternatively, contact customer support at your phone manufacturer or carrier a realtime update.

The Bluebox "Master key" Security Scanner will scan your device to determine: - If your system is vulnerable or patched to any of the "master key" security flaws affecting most Android devices (there are multiple 'master key' flaws at this point) - If your system settings allow 'Untrusted Sources' application installs - If any installed application on your device is trying to maliciously take advantage of any of the 'master key' security flaws

Thank you, team Bluebox! It's very nice to know that a team had put in some of their extra work time to find such a loophole in Android's security. Also to make an app exclusively for its users to check if their Android is patched with the update or not.

Unintrusive, at least I can't speak as to the effectiveness of mobile AV, as I generally consider the entire industry to be largely snakeoil and FUD, but at least this app is unintrusive and has some configuration checks that give you an idea of whether you might have missed an important setting. As for whether it's any good at catching mobile malware... I'm not too sure.
