Thu, 26 Oct 2017 01:00:00 GMT

October 26, 2017 Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web is pleased to announce the release of version 12 of its Dr.Web Security Space for Android. The software product is now equipped with a new component—Parental Control. Furthermore, its Security Auditor is now able to detect new, dangerous vulnerabilities; other modules also boast new features and upgrades. Known software issues have been resolved. Account The new version includes enhanced settings protection. Use the Account item in the application menu to password-protect access to certain Dr.Web Security Space for Android components and settings. A password will also be necessary to access the new component—Parental Control. Parental Control Thanks to the addition of Parental Control, Dr.Web Security Space for Android can now be used to restrict other users' access to the Call and SMS filter, installed applications, the URL-filter, and Dr.Web settings.

How to recover a Dr.Web Security Space for Android version 12 password

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 00:00:00 GMT

October 26, 2017

In Dr.Web Security Space for Android version 12, the application’s account information has been password-protected. This ensures that the URL filter, Call and SMS Filter, and Anti-theft are now reliably protected from having their settings tampered with—provided Parental Control is enabled and configured on a device.

Android device protection is enhanced by a single password for the Dr.Web and Anti-theft accounts.

But users often forget their passwords; that’s an inescapable truth. If you’ve forgotten your Dr.Web Security Space for Android version 12 account password, it can be recovered in three ways:

  • via an SMS;
  • via a letter sent to the user’s registered email address;
  • and if those two methods don't help, the user will be able to contact the Dr.Web technical support service.

and if those two methods don't help, the user will be able to contact the Dr.Web technical support service.

In your request specify the device IMEI (your device’s unique identifier; typically, this is a 15-digit number written in decimal digits) and attach to your request:

  • the corresponding receipt and a photo of the completed warranty certificate (if you have the device's box/packaging and the IMEI is readable, attach a photo of the box to your request);
  • proof of purchase of your Dr.Web license—an email from the eStore, a scanned copy of the payment document, or other (this is not required for trial version users).

If you won your license during a Dr.Web auction—specify your Doctor Web account login.

Find the instructions on how to recover your password in the FAQ section.

Dr.Web will tell whether Android devices have been exposed to the BlueBorne vulnerability in the Bluetooth protocol

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 00:00:00 GMT

October 26, 2017 Bluetooth is one of the most widespread communication protocols and a popular data-transfer channel used by mobile phones, computers, household appliances, electronics, children’s toys, medical devices, and cars. It provides a secure connection; however, sometimes flaws are discovered in it. A whole group of dangerous vulnerabilities surfaced recently. Cybercriminals can use them to gain full control over attacked devices, execute arbitrary code, and steal confidential information. The Security Auditor that comes with Dr.Web Security Space for Android checks whether mobile devices have been exposed to these vulnerabilities and notifies users about them in a timely manner. The detected vulnerabilities and the attack vector they use have been called BlueBorne. Security researchers have detected a problem in the components of most modern-day operation systems, including Windows, iOS, and Linux and the platforms based on its kernel, e.g., Tizen and Android. BlueBorne includes the following vulnerabilities: CVE-2017-0781, CVE-2017-0782 – Android vulnerabilities that allow applications to be launched with system privileges; CVE-2017-0785 – an Android vulnerability that can lead to the leak and theft of confidential information; CVE-2017-0783 – an Android vulnerability that facilitates Man-in-The-Middle attacks; CVE-2017-1000251 – a vulnerability in a Linux kernel component that facilitates the execution of arbitrary code; CVE-2017-1000250 – a vulnerability in a Linux kernel component that may lead to the theft of confidential information. BlueBorne allows cybercriminals to execute malicious code remotely on Android devices possessing an enabled Bluetooth transmitter by sending specially formed data packages. An attack is performed with OS kernel privileges and doesn’t require that devices be pre-paired or visibility mode enabled. For a vulnerability to be successfully exploited, it is enough for a potential victim’s device to have its Bluetooth adapter enabled and for the attacker to be within range of the transmitter. Because the processes that make Bluetooth work have elevated privileges in all operating systems, these vulnerabilities can be exploited to give criminals almost full control over an attacked object. BlueBorne vulnerabilities let cybercriminals control devices, spread malicious software among them, gain access to their data and the networks they are connected to, and perform Man-in-The-Middle attacks. These vulnerabilities pose a danger to all Android smartphones, tablets and other devices that have not had the security update dated September 9, 2017, applied to them and to devices that use Bluetooth in anything other than the Bluetooth Low Energy mode. In addition to cybercriminals using BlueBorne to carry out attacks directly, malicious programs that exploit these vulnerabilities may appear. They will be able to independently spread across Bluetooth channels from one device to another, similar to network worms. The devices most at risk are those that have not obtained security updates from the firmware manufacturers and OS developers. The Security Auditor that comes with Dr.Web Security Space detects the numerous vulnerabilities that can be present on Android smartphones and tablets. Among those vulnerabilities are the widely known Extra Field, MasterKey, Heartbleed, and a host of others. When the updated version of Auditor was released, the aforementioned BlueBorne vulnerability and SIM Toolkit (CVE-2015-3843) had already been added to it.. The SIM Toolkit error in Android lets cybercriminals intercept and fake commands sent by a SIM card to a mobile device and back. That’s why cybercriminals can execute phishing attacks using fraudulent windows and steal confidential information such as login c[...]

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 15:58:13 GMT

August 1, 2017

Doctor Web has announced the introduction of new rules governing the blocking and replacement of pirated Dr.Web key files.

Anti-piracy rules updated for Dr.Web users
