BASICS

QR Codes
By Carlos Rodriquez Perez
Imagine you’re a malware developer, and you are looking for new techniques to spread your malware, you’re tired of thinking and suddenly you have an idea, why not include my trojan in a QR Code? This is the question that many cyberdelinquents ask to themselves, is very easy to pass a trojan by an application for our smatphone, for example an X-Ray Reader (fake of course), once we have read the fraudulent code, the malware disburdens himself and attack, usually the attack consists in a malware that is installed in our smatphone, once installed is dedicated to ilegal activities, such as sending SMS to a payment service that takes advantages of the attacker.

Popularly QR Codes have found their application in encoding URLs, visiting cards, addresses and various forms of advertisement data on posters. Along with its great uses, QR codes have also many potential risks due to the vulnerabilities around its design and hence prying threat vectors would always be after exploiting those vulnerabilities.

QR Codes: Convenience or Minefield?
By David Nordell CEO of New Global Markets
Imagine that you are walking in the street in the town where you live. You need to find a new place to live, and don’t really want to use an estate agent, because they usually lie about the places they have available, and charge a commission too. But you pass a tree with a sheet of paper stapled to the bark, reading “beautiful two-room apartment, lots of light, modern kitchen and bathroom … no agents.”

QR Codes – Hacking, cracking and other security considerations
By V. Michael Balas, Founder and CEO at VitreoQR, LLC
On March 6th of 1992, the world waited for the Michaelangelo Computer Virus to strike hundreds of thousands of computers across the planet. The threat was so great this one computer event received massive and widespread media attention in virtually every indus-trialized country. Ultimately, the virus did little actual damage but its media coverage fright-ened the world into a more pro-active position regarding protection from such attacks. The antivirus software industry now had its first truly legitimate example of the need for antivi-rus software. John McAfee was well on his way to making millions.
