    BlackBerry Gets Its First Trojan 

    Varun Srivastava, the Business Development Head at APPIN Security Group that just happens to be a leading player in ethical hacking and information security, has recently come out with a Whitepaper on what causes hacking of BlackBerry phones, whether it is secure/ lawfully interceptible, and how can it be avoided. Needless to say, BlackBerry users are probably fretting right about now, as most offices these days issue some of their executives, especially the ones that are constantly traveling, with Blackberry handsets.

    Android 


    When I came back to my hectic days of work after my long holiday break (hope you guys know what “a ten day break” means to we IT people), I heard about Android, the open handset project. I have been to mobile app world for quite some time and it thrilled me a bit. I am not ready to give you my perspective on that, but can give you some good content references.

    Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. This early look at the Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications on the Android platform using the Java programming language.

    Top mobile applications of 2007 

    Fierce Mobile Content - Top Mobile Apps 2007 

    Fierce Mobile Content announced the Top mobile applications of 2007.

    What a difference a year makes. When FierceMobileContent inaugurated its Top App Awards in the autumn of 2006, the emphasis was squarely on the entertainment and multimedia applications then revolutionizing the mobile platform. Twelve months later, mobile subscribers have evolved from consumers to prosumers, and instead of watching video clips and listening to music, they’re socializing, shopping and searching. Content consumption is out and content creation is in–after all, why watch videos when you can upload your own?

    PushRegistry SMS Listener 

    I have attached a small code snippet which implements an SMS listener. For more details on PushRegistry click here. This will invoke notifyIncomingMessage() of the MessageListener. This code will not create a permanent entry in the registry, but will listen to the specified port as long as the application is alive.

    package subin.rnd.mobile.game;
    
    import javax.microedition.io.Connector;
    import javax.wireless.messaging.MessageConnection;
    import javax.wireless.messaging.MessageListener;
    import javax.wireless.messaging.TextMessage;
    
    public class SmsListener
    implements MessageListener
    {
        private int port;
        private MessageConnection messageConnection;
    
        public SmsListener(int port)
        {
            try
            {
                this.messageConnection = (MessageConnection) Connector.open("sms://:" + port);
                this.messageConnection.setMessageListener(this);
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                System.out.println("Exception: " + e);
            }
        }
    
        public void notifyIncomingMessage(MessageConnection messageConnection)
        {
            System.out.println("Recieved SMS from " + messageConnection);
    
            new Thread()
            {
                MessageConnection conn;
                Thread set(MessageConnection conn)
                {
                    this.conn = conn;
                    return (this);
                }
                public void run()
                {
                    try
                    {
                        TextMessage msg = (TextMessage) conn.receive();
                        System.out.println("Recieved SMS: " + msg.getPayloadText());
                    }
                    catch (Exception e)
                    {
                        System.out.println("SMS recieve Exception " + e);
                    }
                }
            }.set(messageConnection).start();
        }
    }
