    A new report from security researchers suggests a new trojan preying on Android users. It is first detected by ESET in November 2018, the malware combines the capabilities of a remotely controlled banking Trojan with a novel misuse of Android Accessibility services, to target users of the official PayPal app. Once it is launched, the malicious app terminates without offering any functionality and hides its icon. The malware’s first function is stealing money from its victims; PayPal account holders. However, it requires the activation of a malicious Accessibility service. This request is presented to the user as being from the innocuous-sounding “Enable statistics” service. If the official PayPal app is installed on the compromised device, the malware displays a notification alert prompting the user to launch it. Once the user opens the PayPal app and logs in, the malicious accessibility service becomes active and mimics the user’s clicks to send money to the attacker’s PayPal address. The whole process takes about 5 seconds, and for an unsuspecting user, there is no feasible way to intervene in time. Since the malware does not rely on stealing PayPal login credentials, it instead waits for users to log into the official PayPal app themselves, it also bypasses PayPal’s two-factor authentication (2FA). The ...

    Google, until now allowed free photo and videos to be uploaded to Photos services as long as they are compressed. However, the company is changing it now, as of December 6th, videos in unsupported formats are no longer included in the free storage.  In the Google support site, the company added the following note: "videos uploaded after December 6, 2018, take up storage space." Google Photos supports almost any video format which includes .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and .mkv files. Since it is on the unsupported video page, your files are likely still free. Rare video formats like VOB or RAW video from a high-end camera will take up storage space going forward. It is also likely that Photos users are tinkering with the file containers to make large, non-video files look like videos. Something of this kind that might have counted as free storage in the past but no more. Source

    According to IDC, worldwide smartphone shipments are expected to decline by 3% in 2018 before returning to low single-digit growth in 2019 and through 2022. Despite the on-going US-China trade war, IDC says that it believes that continued developments from emerging markets, combined with potential around 5G and new product form factors, will bring the smartphone market back to positive growth. Smartphone shipments are expected to drop to 1.42 billion units in 2018, down from 1.47 billion in 2017. The YoY growth in shipments will be around 2.6% in 2019. The smartphone shipments are forecast to reach 1.57 billion units in 2022. The China market, which represented 30% of total smartphone shipments in 2017, is finally showing signs of recovery. The U.S. is also forecast to return to positive growth in 2019 after experiencing a decline in 2018. The slow revival of China was one of the reasons for low growth in Q3 2018 and this slowdown will persist into Q1 2019 as the market is expected to drop by 3% in Q4 2018. Furthermore, the recently lifted U.S. ban on ZTE had an impact on shipments in Q3 2018 and created a sizable gap that is yet to be filled heading into ...
