NEW Nokia C1 May Be Able To Run On Both Windows And Android



I can’t guarantee the authenticity of Nokia’s new Android device, the Nokia C1 images, its a known fact that there have been rumors of Nokia releasing a new device any time soon. Nokia hasn’t been able to make smartphones of its own for a while now but by the end of this year, the contractual agreement with Microsoft is expiring and the company may really get back into making new smartphones.
The new renders we’ve seen suggests Nokia’s upcoming Nokia C1 it’s likely going to have an Android and Windows variants. Although this seems to be more logical, there are also speculations the device might be able to dual boot Android and Windows.

According To ,eThe rendered images found on Weibo suggests the device is going to have a customized UI running Z launcher. But then, a device having a Windows & Android variant looks rather doubtful and this is why the images can’t be totally accepted as genuine.
Nokia has made it known that it might return to smartphone production in 2016 but then, it seems we have to wait to know if this device is actually the real deal or just a concept created by a Nokia fan.
The last Android phones, Nokia X and Nokia XL, didn’t perform so well and this may be because they were just below par. Those devices were not what people were expecting and a lot of potential buyers changed their minds. There were so many devices in their price range offering better features and perform way better.
If the news of this new Nokia C1 is true, the company will definitely ensure it’s good enough to compete in the already saturated market. A lot of old Nokia users are anticipating the company’s return and would like to see them back in business.
Again, these images may be fake and the whole thing might be a well-concocted rumor after all.

Vulnerability in RCS messaging could compromise your bank details




German security company SRLabs has recently discovered a serious security breach that could replace SMS. According to their findings, the RCS protocol has a vulnerability that allows your data to be intercepted.

Hackers could exploit this vulnerability locally or remotely. Among the information they can intercept, we have unique codes that are sent by message in two-factor authentication systems.

One of the applications of these unique codes is in the authorization of bank transactions. This means that in extreme cases your bank details could be compromised due to this vulnerability.


Android messaging should improve your domain verification system

As SRLabs points out, the most popular application supporting RCS technology is currently Android Messaging. According to its findings, this application does not properly verify domains.

This means that miscreants can spoof caller ID or DNS. Something that could mislead users and provide information they shouldn’t.

Coincidentally or not, Google revealed this week that it will accredit message senders in your app. The idea is for companies to register their contact numbers with Google so that they can validate them when communicating with users. A measure that will certainly reduce the impact of this vulnerability.

What is RCS and its differences from SMS

The acronym RCS stands for Rich Communication Service. Briefly, this protocol allows messages to be sent over the internet. The SMS protocol uses cellular networks to send messages.
