Be Careful…YouTube might HIJACK your SmartPhone..!!!

 

Yes… Not believing .. but it’s a FACT …!!! .. Be careful …  while not watching Videos of  You Tube … BUT WHILE WATCHING  VIDEOS ON YOU TUBE   AND  KEEPING YOUR SMARTPHONE ASIDE…!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This new type of hacking is courtesy to our Voice recognition technology..

All of us aware about Apple’s SIRI and Google Now , Voice recognition has taken the control of our Smart Phones.. .. So , A muffled voice hidden in a   You Tube  video can issue commands to a nearby smartphone without you even knowing it.. And  If the hackers know the ins and outs of the voice recognition software itself aynd know its internal workings, they can create voice commands that are even harder to decipher by humans…

Logic is simple . Suppose.. If a million people watching some UEFA Euro  video with a secret message embedded, 10,000 of them might have their phone nearby. If 5,000 of those load a URL with malware on it, you have 5,000 smart phones  under an attacker’s control , very easily…

How can we prevent such things than  ? …The only  possible solution is  to    incorporate filters in such voice recognition software  to differentiate between human and computer-generated sounds…  But till than , It’s  our duty to safeguards  ourselves…
