Google ha confirmado la nueva versión de Android, haciendo su presentación ante la versión KTU84P.
KitKat es el comienzo de una estrategia de Google para llevar la última versión de Android a todos los dispositivos Android, tanto si son de gama alta o baja.
Tras analizar casi 400.000 aplicaciones alojadas en la Google Play Store para comprobar si Heartbleed afectaba a estas aplicaciones Android, la empresa Tred Micro asegura que aproximadamente 1300 de estas aplicaciones son vulnerables al bug.
“Las aplicaciones móviles, nos guste o no, son tan vulnerables a Heartbleed como lo son las páginas web (además de las aplicaciones de navegador móvil, de compra online, banca o apps de licitación). Esto se debe al hecho de que la mayoría de las apps ofrecen la posibilidad de comprar desde la aplicación, pues es una forma segura de conseguir más víctimas con esta vulnerabilidad“, explica Veo Zhang, un especialista en amenazas móviles.
Android consigue cada día 1,5 millones de activaciones de dispositivos, cifra que ha crecido en 1,4 millones/día desde el pasado mes. La compañía cree que superará 1.000 millones de dispositivos Android al final del año.
Convertido en dispositivo elegido por fabricantes y usuarios, fabricantes ven en él la posibilidad de aumentar sus ventas y usuarios se decantan por un sistema operativo de código abierto con más de 700.000 aplicaciones en Google Play (y colaboración de 320 operadores de 160 países )

El investigador de seguridad Dmitri Alperovitch ha alertado sobre un fallo de seguridad en Android que permitiría a los hackers hacerse con el control total de los dispositivos. El fallo se explota a través del envío de mensajes o correos electrónicos que se hacen pasar por fuentes fiables pero que contienen enlaces maliciosos. Al infectarse los equipos, los hackers podrían controlar totalmente los dispositivos.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has died at age 56. Apple.com currently shows a solitary photo of Jobs (see above) and simply says, “Steve Jobs 1955-2011.”
A statement from Jobs’ family reads, in full:
“Steve died peacefully today surrounded by his family.
In his public life, Steve was known as a visionary; in his private life, he cherished his family. We are thankful to the many people who have shared their wishes and prayers during the last year of Steve’s illness; a website will be provided for those who wish to offer tributes and memories.
We are grateful for the support and kindness of those who share our feelings for Steve. We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief.”
Jobs has been instrumental in many of Apple’s hit products, stretching back to 1976 with the Apple I, all the way to the modern-day iPhone and iPad. He revealed to Apple employees in 2004 that he’d been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and underwent a liver transplant in 2009. In late August of this year, Jobs stepped down as CEO of Apple.
He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Laurene, and their three children. Jobs also has a fourth child from a past relationship named Lisa, after whom he named Apple’s “Lisa” computer in 1983.
Apple’s board of directors has issued the following statement:
“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.
Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.
His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.”
Another statement on Apple’s website at apple.com/stevejobs reads:
“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of use who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org”
New Apple CEO Tim Cook sent the following e-mail to Apple employees:
I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.
Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
We are planning a celebration of Steve’s extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email email@example.com.
No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Laurene and his children during this difficult time.
Microsoft chairman Bill Gateshas issued the following statement:“I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.
Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.
The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.
For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.”
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has issued the following statement:
“Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.”
Google co-founder Sergey Brin has issued the following statement:
“From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration for vision and leadership, we needed to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in person the few times we have met. On behalf of all of us at Google and more broadly in technology, you will be missed very much. My condolences to family, friends, and colleagues at Apple.”
Google co-founder Larry Page has issued the following statement:
“I am very, very sad to hear the news about Steve. He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me. He was very kind to reach out to me as I became CEO of Google and spend time offering his advice and knowledge even though he was not at all well. My thoughts and Google’s are with his family and the whole Apple family.”
Google chairman Eric Schmidt has issued the following statement:
“Today is very sad for all of us. Steve defined a generation of style and technology that’s unlikely to be matched again. Steve was so charismatically brilliant that he inspired people to do the impossible, and he will be remembered as the greatest computer innovator in history.”President Obama has issued the following statement:
“Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.
By building one of the planet’s most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.
The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve’s wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him.”
Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger has issued the following statement:
“Steve Jobs was a great friend as well as a trusted adviser. His legacy will extend far beyond the products he created or the businesses he built. It will be the millions of people he inspired, the lives he changed, and the culture he defined. Steve was such an ‘original,’ with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started. With his passing the world has lost a rare original, Disney has lost a member of our family, and I have lost a great friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Laurene and his children during this difficult time.”
Ed Catmull and John Lasseter of Pixar said:
“Steve Jobs was an extraordinary visionary, our very dear friend and the guiding light of the Pixar family. He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined. Steve took a chance on us and believed in our crazy dream of making computer animated films; the one thing he always said was to simply ‘make it great.’ He is why Pixar turned out the way we did and his strength, integrity and love of life has made us all better people. He will forever be a part of Pixar’s DNA. Our hearts go out to his wife Laurene and their children during this incredibly difficult time.”
Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang said:
“Steve was my hero growing up. He not only gave me a lot of personal advice and encouragement, he showed all of us how innovation can change lives. I will miss him dearly, as will the world.”
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said:
“Once in a rare while, somebody comes along who doesn’t just raise the bar, they create an entirely new standard of measurement.”
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg issued the following statement:
“Tonight, America lost a genius who will be remembered with Edison and Einstein, and whose ideas will shape the world for generations to come. Again and again over the last four decades, Steve Jobs saw the future and brought it to life long before most people could even see the horizon. And Steve’s passionate belief in the power of technology to transform the way we live brought us more than smartphones and iPads: It brought knowledge and power that is reshaping the face of civilization. In New York City’s government, everyone from street construction inspectors to NYPD detectives have harnessed Apple’s products to do their jobs more efficiently and intuitively.”
Dell founder Michael Dell issued the following statement:
“Today the world lost a visionary leader, the technology industry lost an iconic legend and I lost a friend and fellow founder. The legacy of Steve Jobs will be remembered for generations to come.”
AOL co-founder Steve Case said:
“I feel honored to have known Steve Jobs. He was the most innovative entrepreneur of our generation. His legacy will live on for the ages.”
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told CNN:
“It’s like there’s a big hole left in you, and it’s very hard to go back and reflect on all the feelings… Everyone knows what he did—how much life he brought to the world. I think if he had a goal, he certainly far, far overachieved any goals he had from the start of things.
I think Steve Jobs would have had hopes and visions for the future, and he set up Apple Computer really to continue on in his dreams. And I hope that Apple always finds great leaders like him. He made a lot of people happy. How many times can you remember products from a company that just made you happy every time you used them?…
So many people are just so thankful for the life that Steve Jobs largely brought us.”
Steve Jobs, from his 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University:
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure—these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
Según los últimos datos ofrecidos por comScore MobiLens, en julio de 2011 casi uno de cada cuatro usuarios de smartphones utilizó la plataforma Google Android. Por marcas, HTC alcanza la mayor cuota de mercado entre los fabricantes de equipos originales de móviles, con un 34,6% de todos los dispositivos utilizados en la región EU5 (Francia, Alemania, Italia, España y Reino Unido), seguido de Samsung, 31,7%.
Entre los diferentes sistemas operativos, Android mostró el mayor crecimiento en este periodo, ampliando su cuota de mercado desde un 6% en julio del año pasado hasta los 22,3 puntos porcentuales en julio de 2011.
El crecimiento de Android superó al del resto de plataformas por un margen que alcanzó los 32 puntos respecto de Symbian. En cambio, el IOS de Apple y el RIM de BlackBerry ganan poco más de un punto porcentual. Sólo las plataformas Symbian y Microsoft experimentaron cambios negativos, con unas disminuciones del 16,1% y del 4,8% respectivamente.
Android por países
En julio de 2011, 19,7 millones de usuarios de EU5 utilizaron dispositivos Android. Por países en los que es más popular esta plataforma, destacan Reino Unido, 6,3 millones, Francia, 4,5 millones, y Alemania, 4 millones.
Por otra parte, son varios los países en los que HTC y Samsung lideran la cuota de dispositivos. Por ejemplo, en Reino Unido más del 50% de los dispositivos Android son de la marca HTC. En Francia, los terminales Samsung representan el 42,3%.
Jeremy Copp, vicepresidente de Europa para móvil de comScore, considera que “los operadores de redes, editores y anunciantes que busquen llegar de forma eficaz al público europeo de telefonía móvil, deben prestar mucha atención al continuo crecimiento de Android en la zona, ya que probablemente tendrá grandes implicaciones en el panorama de los medios móviles”.
Zimperium will soon release a penetration-testing app called Android Network Toolkit (Anti), ready to sniff our Wi-Fi vulnerabilities for good or evil, says Forbes. The software was shown at the DefCon hacking conference in Las Vegas, following a Black Hat security conference that featured presentations on a new DARPA Cyber-Fast Track project, the Shady RAT cyber-attack, and Facebook facial-recognition tools.
Israeli security firm Zimperium, led by hacker Itzhak (“Zuk”) Avraham, demonstrated the Android Network Toolkit (Anti) at the DefCon hacker conference in Las Vegas Aug. 5, and said it would be available on Android Market within the week, according to Andy Greenberg writing in Forbes.
The Anti app is designed as a basic, easy-to-use mobile penetration testing mechanism for searching out and demonstrating vulnerabilities in computer systems, says the story.
“We wanted to create a penetration testing tool for the masses,” Zimperium founder Avraham, pictured above right in a Forbes shot, was quoted as saying. Zimperium bills itself as a security consultancy specializing in mobile security.
Available for free, or with a $10 corporate upgrade, Anti uses Wi-Fi to find and scan open networks and identify potential target devices on the networks, says the story. Its traceroute software, meanwhile, is said to reveal the IP addresses of remote servers.
Anti options include the ability to eavesdrop on local devices or even attack via exploits collected in platforms like Metasploit or ExploitDB, says Forbes, which published the screenshot at left. While certainly useful for “white hat” security professionals who need to find vulnerabilities in order to protect resources, it could also be used by amateur spies and “black hat” malware attackers. (Professional black hats, meanwhile, likely have more sophisticated mobile tools at their disposal.)
According to Forbes, Zimperium will ask users in its terms of service to limit their hacking to white hat penetration testing. (Yeah, that should do it.)
With its automated interface, Anti is somewhat similar to the Firesheep, proof-of-concept Firefox extension released last October, says the story. Firesheep, which let amateurs easily snoop on devices on unsecured Wi-Fi networks that connect to unencrypted web pages, was downloaded more than 1.7 million times, says Forbes. Aside from enabling possible nefarious exploits, “it also helped inspire both Twitter and Facebook to encrypt traffic to their site and prevent such eavesdropping,” writes Greenberg.
Black Hat finishes up with Microsoft BlueHat prize, cyber-war warnings
As Fahmida Rashid reported from the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas early last week in a preview, the show was set to feature discussions of SSL vulnerabilities, mobile attacks, Chrome OS security gaps, and “war-texting.”
Also at Black Hat, as reported by WindowsForDevices, Microsoft announced a competition that will “reward security researchers … for developing innovative, new computer security protection technology.” The “BlueHat Prize” competition will offer a $250,000 first prize, along with $50,000 and $10,000 awards, says the story.
Zimperium lanzará una aplicación para testear la penetración de la red llamada Android Toolkit (Anti), listo para detectar vulnerabilidades en nuestro Wi-Fi, para bien o para mal, dice Forbes. El software fue presentado en la conferencia DefCon hacking en Las Vegas.
Zimperium empresa israelí de seguridad , dirigido por Itzhak hackers (“Zuk”) Abraham, demostró el Android Red Toolkit (anti) en la conferencia de hackers DefCon en Las Vegas el 5 de agosto y dijo que estaría disponible en Android Market dentro de la semana.
La aplicación contra está diseñada como una base, fácil de utilizar para realizar pruebas de penetración móvil para buscar y demostrar las vulnerabilidades en los sistemas informáticos.
“Queríamos crear una herramienta de test de penetración para las masas” . Zimperium se anuncia como una consultora de seguridad especializada en seguridad móvil.
Disponible de forma gratuita, o con una actualización de $ 10 profesional, Anti utiliza Wi-Fi para encontrar y analizar las redes abiertas e identificar posibles dispositivos de destino en las redes. Su software es capaz de revelar las direcciones IP de servidores remotos.
Además, incluye la posibilidad de escuchar en los dispositivos locales o incluso realizar ataques a través de exploits recogidos en plataformas como Metasploit o ExploitDB.
Una aplicación útil para los profesionales de “white hat” para encontrar las vulnerabilidades y proteger los recursos, así como para los espías aficionados y atacantes “black hat”.
De acuerdo con Forbes , Zimperium solicita a los usuarios en sus “condiciones de servicio”, aceptar que utilizarán el software para pruebas “white hat”.
Con su interfaz automatizada, es algo similar a laFiresheep , que permiten a los aficionados, de forma sencilla, espiar los dispositivos de garantía redes Wi-Fi que se conectan a páginas web sin encriptar y que se ha descargado más de 1,7 millones de veces.
Como Fahmida Rashid informó de la conferencia de seguridad Black Hat en Las Vegas la semana pasada al principio de una vista previa, el programa fue establecido en función de las discusiones de las vulnerabilidades de SSL, los ataques móviles, las brechas de seguridad de Chrome OS, y la “guerra contra los mensajes de texto”.
También en Black Hat, según lo informado por WindowsForDevices, Microsoft anunció un concurso que va a “premiar los investigadores de seguridad … para el desarrollo de tecnologías innovadoras de computación para la protección.” El “Premio BlueHat” ofrecerá un premio de $ 250,000 en primer lugar, junto con premios de $ 50.000 y $ 10.000 respectivamente.

Two weeks ago, I received my new H3000 Android phone. The mobile device has the following features:
I’m newbie on Android and smartphones, however I began to touch, connect to Internet, run apps, share mp3 through bluetooth and install / uninstall applications on a few minutes. I was surprised at the simplicity, ease of use and the fun.
When I went into the Android market I was amazed for the lot of apps available and most of them were free for users. I think that feature allows user test apps and then they can decide to purchase pro/premium versions.
There are very fun apps, useful apps and strange or weird apps. If you don’t believe me, please go to Android market and browse the categories or search for any word and you can see for yourself.
Here I bring you a few list of my favorite apps:
Now I’m developing my own apps and soon you can download and install to your own phone.
If you want to develop your own apps go to App Inventor and see the powerful of thisapp/service.
See you soon my new Android friend.
NONICK is an International Conference on Internet Trends that is held every year in Bilbao, Spain. It includes panel discussions, barcamp-style workshops, a startup competition and a night party. The 3rd edition of nonick will take place on 17 and 18 June 2011 in the EiTB headquarters in Bilbao.
Nonick stands for no nick. This is because, at this event, Internet users are expected to act, for once, without their nicks. As international event, nonick’s main language is English, the common world language. Panel discussions, competitions and the party will be held in English. For open workshops any language can be used, at the choice of the workshop organizer.
Startup 2.0 2011 is a European contest for Mobile Applications. Founded in 2007, this non-profit event is a competition for startups that use 2.0 technologies whose objectives are to promote and reward the European startups (either created or willing to do so in the future) that work in the field.
An international jury and Internet users will vote for the best 5 social networks. During nonick, these 5 selected startups will present their projects for 5 minutes (each) and people will vote to select the winner.
