Wondering how secure your Android smartphone is? Well, a 9-year-old cyber security expert has demonstrated how hackers could steal contacts, call logs and messages within just 15 minutes.
Speaking at the Security B-sides Conference last week, Harmony School of Science third-grader Reuben Paul took to the stage to promote safer smartphone security. His Keynote speech stressed the importance of being extra careful when downloading apps, showing how even seemingly safe software can be used by cyber criminals to access sensitive data and snoop on your location.
“If a child can do it then a regular hacker can do it… so I just want everybody to be aware [and to] be more careful when you download games and stuff like that,” he said.
