may girge, 15 Nov 2014Some commenter here believe that 'security by obscurity' is better. That's a wrong mindset. ... morethere is no perfect software design. Give me 1 example of a perfect unhackable open source software. can u do that?
Fidore, 15 Nov 2014Software should be secure by design. If you rely on obscurity, that implies the actual program... more+1 to that. This is the most sane and sensible comment I've come across in GSMArena.
AnonD-5197, 14 Nov 2014Just because you can read the code doesn't mean you can still hack it. Read up on how Android ... moreI dont agree. If you move in certain circles then you would know that Android leaks like a sieve and is a snap for certain people to take advantage of. Even this website has reported various urgent upgrades to Android, and Samsung's own touch to the OS given some glaring security issues. Sure there is no perfect OS though one has to accept that Blackberry is largely considered the best in the public arena. Remember the PRISM scandal of recent times. Blackberry was the only OS not mentioned.
El You, 15 Nov 2014I will rather call it BlaGaxy Series. I would rather call it "Galaxyberry" Series.

That's a wrong mindset.
It's only delaying the inevitable.

MrTruth, 15 Nov 2014So what you're saying is that you have no clue how encryptions works, because your comment is ... morePlease don't fight here. and do discussion without hatred.
as much as i know, to implement the same encryption, many developer can use different codes. and there is no perfect developer in this world. they are human, they can make mistake. for example they can mistakenly write code that can create buffer overflow, or they forget to initialize some variables then use it elsewhere in their code.
If all people can read their code and some of them find the mistake, they can use it for terrible purpose.
ih, 14 Nov 2014As long as it still fully open source, it will never be secure. No matter how good they (googl... moreSo what you're saying is that you have no clue how encryptions works, because your comment is stupid. Encryption is not becoming insecure just because you can see the source code, in fact, the principle of encryption is that the method is known and only one/all keys are secret.
You really have a lot to learn.
AnonD-5197, 14 Nov 2014Just because you can read the code doesn't mean you can still hack it. Read up on how Android ... more'Open' doesn't always make better. for security resons, "close" is the only way to go. it is better if google close some of android codes rather than open them all.
And yes.. there are no perfect codes in this world. It's too dangerous if naughty people can easily read that.
Haha. That's good. Mean samsung also accept that BlackBerry OS is the most secure os of the world. It's mean samsung also need help from BlackBerry.
Now where are people they say BlackBerry is dead. ? ? ? ?
BlackBerry alwaz rock.

Start with things like URL SQL injection and you will begin to understand basic concepts. The only malicious software that installs with user permission are trojan horses, but there is a ton of other stuff that allows a hacker to gain entry. Browser exploits, hidden admin exploits, fake USSD codes, etc, etc.
I don't know myself how exactly it is done, but at least i understand what vulnerabilities are.
I'm happy for the BlackBerry extra cash it will receive. Samuel Shaw will up its security system I suppose idk.. not a fan of Samsung but all good!! :)

Read up on how Android apps work. You'll find that without user's permission, a rogue app cannot do anything. In this sense, Android has perfect security unless the user is careless.
[deleted post]lol U need to learn English better. he was right the way he said it
AnonD-6193, 14 Nov 2014Ya, Samsung + blackberry + cynogen mod = super secure LOLNooo... u need non-secure device to use cyanogenmod. cyanogenmod can be installed on rooted phone only. Secure device cant be rooted.
