Editor of World-Renowned Security Magazine Appreciates K7 Speakers

November 7th, 2014

In a nice gesture, the editor of the acclaimed Virus Bulletin magazine has blogged about the presentation of our reserve speaker duo who were meant to present a paper and a short demo, in the event of an absent speaker at the 2014 Virus Bulletin International Conference held recently in Seattle, USA.

VB2014 has already been discussed, highlighting the presentation by K7’s Gregory Panakkal. Nevertheless, this post is dedicated to the reserve speakers from K7 Threat Control Lab, Samir Mody, Senior Manager and V.Dhanalakshmi, Senior Threat Researcher.

Their paper, “Early launch Android malware: your phone is 0wned”, demonstrates the difficulties in
removing an active Android ransomware, “’Koler/Simple Locker”, infection that prevents a user from
uninstalling it. It also proposes a new framework which Google could induct to help mobile security vendors defeat Android malware strategies.
