Hackers use malicious chip to hack shattered Android phones

24 August 2017 18

Most of the time when the screen on your smartphone shatters, you give it to a local shop to get it repaired. Did you ever think that giving it to them could lead to compromising sensitive data stored on your smartphone? Has the thought ever crossed your mind? If it has, your nightmare just may have become a reality. A study by researchers at the University of the Negev has surfaced on the internet showing how phones can be hacked at third party outlets when fixing a shattered screen. This leaves your device vulnerable to attackers who are looking to steal personal data. So how does this actually work?

It’s done through the use of a malicious chip which is embedded within the replacement device, giving full control to the attacker. What’s even scarier is the fact that it’s not done through software where anti-virus tools can remove it. It’s carried out through a physical chip which can be easily applied to the screen. The researchers at the University of the Negev even demonstrated how this could be done by hijacking a Huawei Nexus 6P smartphone and an LG G Pad 7 tablet. Notice how this can be done on a phone as well as a tablet! After hijacking the devices, the researchers showed how sensitive information such as passwords as well as downloaded apps could be seamlessly accessed. Phishing attempts were also made successfully using the above-mentioned devices.

Unfortunately, iPhone users may also be subjected to a similar attack as claimed by the researchers. This demonstration was done in order to caution manufacturers and urge them to take up more security measures on a hardware level as well. Here’s what the University of the Negev researchers had to say:

A well-motivated adversary may be fully capable of mounting such attacks in a large scale or against specific targets…System designers should consider replacement components to be outside the phone's trust boundary and design their defences accordingly.

Hackers can now use a malicious chip when repairing a smashed screen on your smartphone to gain access to all your data.

Please everyone should be careful and stop being fooled by all these brokers and account managers, they scammed me over $526,000 of my investment capital, they kept on requesting for extra funds before a withdrawal request can be accepted and processed, in the end, I lost all my money. All efforts to reach out to their customer support desk had declined, I found it very hard to move on. God so kind I followed a broadcast that teaches on how scammed victims can recover their fund, I contacted the email provided for consultation, I got feedback after some hours and I was asked to provide all legal details concerning my investment, I did exactly what they instructed me to do without delay, to my greatest surprise I was able to recover my money back including my profit which my capital generated.

In recent time, I begin to wonder why most broken relationships occur due to cheating. It’s hard to find someone who will love you wholeheartedly like you loved them. Owing to lack of self respect for their partner or lack of being contented with their partner. I’ve heard several stories from friends and colleagues how they fall off their relationship due to catching their spouse’s in the cheating acts. That was how I got a recommendation about (Remotespytech @ Gmail) com who helped me remotely access my suspecting cheating girlfriend’s in her ways. I was able to see all of her texts, calls, IG chats etc while I was away on a business trip to the UK I could see all of her activities on her phone without physical touch as if I got her phone with me.I felt this was impossible but Remotespytech made it easy and user friendly, I was able to figure out she’s dating a guy downtown all along our relationship, it’s really devastating and sad to see this but I’m finally happy I got  my peace of mind restored. I got Remotespytech referral from my friend and I got to believe after seeing many recommendations over the internet. His services are topnotched, genuine and timely,  are you in need of a similar assistance and you’ve been ripped off couple of times. Remotespytech is the real deal to reach out to and get a lasting solution to your abusive and disgraceful relationship.

I just want to say how great it is to work with Stephen Hacker and how much hope they have restored in my life. Getting my spouse messages directly on my phone was like a dream that will never become a reality(at least not anytime soon). I had unsuccessfully used other hackers with no results and no feedback, but in only a few hours of working with him, I have been able to get my life back and have a brighter future!” A very big thanks to him, my relationship is now in its best form. He’s completely amazing. Contact him via email spyservicesbesthacker@gmail.com

Even though i have discourage my friends severally about hiring a private investigator to catch their cheating partners,
i resorted to hiring one during my divorce. My husband hid his affair too well and i had no evidence to prove his infidelity
to the court so i had to go back to my friend who am grateful didn’t listen to me back then to refer me to the hacker she
is working with and i told him my problem. His service are topnotch which made working with him very easy, he got me everything
i needed within 24 hours and it was amazing, i paid upfront cause the trust was already there and i got great results because
i currently have my husband’s messages diverted to my phone, call logs, Facebook messenger, WhatsApp, instant chat, Viber, Skype,
password, retrieved all his deleted messages.The best part about his service is that you do not need any physical access or
installation to the phone you wish to hack, so it was all hell break loose for my husband when i presented the evidence in court
and i got everything i deserve. you can contact him for help via his mail donarldjacksoncyberhost@gmail.com

In 2021 I was in the worst phase of my life when i got an eviction notice and had no shelter with my 2 kids .
I urgently needed a loan to get a home but had a poor credit score, so i got denied for every loan i applied for due to my poor credit.
This situation made my life miserable till i read some good reviews about Gold credit repair and reached out to him.
I told him all i was going through and needed an urgent credit boost and in 2 weeks my credit score was improved with 250 points
and all the negatives were expunged permanently. I finally got approved for a loan to buy a home and a car for myself.
I want to use this medium to thank GOLDCREDITFIX @ GMAIL dot com.

This man is the truth! he takes the time to speak with you and answer your questions as well as help educate you on the things you need to do in order to not fall into the same spot again. he explained in detail the things he's going to do on my behalf to help with negative reports and evictions that deprived me the opportunity of getting a new home then and make sure you understand why he's doing it. And to know that he has been dealing with credit issues for over 12 years just gives me comfort, because it proves he's taken the time to educate himself on every credit related problem and is now able to assist and educate others at the same time. I'm so happy I came across such personality , You can reach him through email : CLASSICREPAIR4U@GMAIL.COM , very responsive and ready to help .
