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.

Recent changes:
version 2.2 - maintenance release
version 2.1 - fixes an issue with the Android Device Inventory

All secure and patched Have been using this app since first version on the first android that came about. This will patch your phone and let you know if it has passed all the test where you may be vulnerable. For the ones commenting on it scaning your phone after installing well It's supposed to scan your phone! That's what it does in order to patch and check for malware and vulnerabilities. GESHHHH...

Don't trust this app anymore I just installed the update and with no interaction from me, it opened itself, and started scanning. I don't trust this app as far as I could throw it anymore.
