Security 1

alphadogg (971356) writes "A 16-year-old security researcher from India plans to present a malware application for Windows Phone 8 at the upcoming MalCon security conference in New Delhi, India, on Nov. 24. According to a brief description of the presentation on the MalCon website, it will show approaches and techniques for infecting Windows Phone 8 devices and will demonstrate how the prototype malware can steal contacts, upload pictures, access text messages and more. The malware's author, a high school student and security researcher, last year at MalCon presented a proof-of-concept malware program capable of interacting with Xbox Kinect devices."
