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

Bluebox scanner Did not know this app or any app could do such a thing it says that it does. I suppose it's very useful, but as the man said in the video, a third party had developed the idea. I also know that all apps require many firewalls to be reconfigured if Google wants to use them. That being said, no app would ever be totally secure. Just my opinion. I'm sure it does work better then most. I've yet to ask about bluebox SSL.

Stagefright? Why no check for the HUGE Stagefright security issue that was discovered MONTHS ago?

Review: Bluebox Security Scanner. So far, it does what it says but it needs a share button so I can paste it to Google Keep.
