Some bad news on the Moto X+1 came out last night through Google+ from none other than Punit Soni. When a post was made asking him if there would be a Dev Edition of the Moto X+1, the answer receive was a shocking and disappointing one. Punit Soni responded to the question quickly by saying "unfortunately no".
There was no further explanation made by Punit and the only other response he made in the post was asking if everyone participating was on VZW.
With the success of the Moto X this is a shocking turn. I'm not sure how many Dev Ed Moto X devices were sold for Verizon but I would have imagined that even more would have been sold for this time around now that people have a taste of what this device brings.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you care that no Dev Ed will be available?

We've known for a while now that there are apps on the Play Store that don't perform proper security certifications over HTTPS, leaving them, and by extension you, vulnerable to man in the middle attacks, whereby you think you're interacting with a secure app server, but are really communicating with an attacker. Using SSL certification over HTTPS is supposed to protect against this, but only when it's done properly. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have begun to compile a list of apps available in the Play Store that either don't perform proper SSL certification, or worse, don't do it at all. The list of vulnerable apps is HERE, prepare to be shocked at some of the names you see on this list.

KorBanker is a malicious Android app that has been known of by security researchers for about a year now. Rearing its ugly head primarily in Korea, KorBanker disguises itself as a legitimate banking app that, once installed, steals a user's banking credentials. Security pros who have been researching this app have recently discovered that KorBanker has also been stealing SMS messages from devices. Researchers who were conducting an analysis of one of KorBanker's command and control servers uncovered a database of text messages that included quite a few passwords and authentication codes. Passwords and codes for things like Facebook, VPN passwords, and Google two step verification codes. As previously stated, for now KorBanker has been most prevalent in Korea, however it doesn't take much of a leap of the imagination to see something like this pop up in the good ole U.S. So allow me a moment to beat on the same dead, rotten horse I've been smacking around for a while now: BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT APPS YOU INSTALL!! Especially apps that you install from sources other than the Play Store. But be careful with those too. Seriously. Read more about KorBanker HERE.

A startup based out of Purdue University has released a new battery monitoring app to the Play Store. Called Estar, this one does pretty much what you'd expect from a battery monitoring app; let you know what apps are using the most power, and allow you to shut them down. Where this one is different is that it not only offers suggestions for similar apps you can install to replace the most power hungry ones on your device, but also ranks apps in the Play Store based on their energy efficiency. So now you'll know if that new app everyone is talking about will be a power hog before you buy and install it. The battery conscious among you can grab the app HERE.

Ignore No More is an app that has been featured by several news outlets as of late. It allows parents to remotely lock their kid's phones is preset number of calls or text messages go unanswered by their children. Once the parent decides to lock down their kid's phone after getting no response, the kid's device will only be allowed to make phone calls to numbers that are saved in the "In Case of Emergency" contact list, which is where the parent's number must be stored. Once the kid stops ignoring the parent, the parent can then remotely unlock the kid's phone. Based on the reading I've done, the app doesn't sound perfect, but it does raise the question of how many of you out there are looking for and/or would use an app like this? Chime in below, and read more about this app HERE.

Hey, guess what? Security researchers have found yet another means of stealing your personal data from your phone. For a change though, it is believed that this one may affect other mobile platforms as well as Android. This one essentially boils down to a phishing type attack, in which a malicious app is able to access data from another app that is stored in shared memory. Using this particular technique, the research team who discovered this vulnerability are reporting a success rate of between 80% - 90% at accessing data from apps such as Gmail, the Chase mobile banking app, and the H&R Block mobile app, among others. Fortunately, in order for this attack to work, quite a few conditions have to be met, including the installation of a malicious app to monitor other apps on your device and user interaction with that app to allow it steal the data. Unfortunately this is yet another scary proof of concept vulnerability that could cause serious heartache if not quickly addressed. The moral of the story, as always, is be careful what apps you install on your devices. More details are HERE.

The guys of Team Codefire (IOMonster, jcase, autoprime, and PlayfulGod) have released a new root exploit that has been confirmed to work on all carrier versions of the LG G3, including the Sprint version, which up until now did not have a working root method. Called Stump Root, its about as easy as rooting gets. Simply download and install the Stump Root apk, run it, reboot when prompted, install SuperSU, uninstall the Stump Root apk, and profit. Big thanks to the guys of Team Codefire for continuing to find and exploit the vulnerabilities that allow us to have root access on our devices! Read more about Stump Root and grab the apk HERE. Standard warnings about rooting your device apply.
