[video] Hacking Your Smartphone Isn't That Hard

‘Hacking smartphones’
In this video, I talk about what it means to ‘hack’ a smartphone, with a brief overview of how it can be done, in both technical and non-technical ways.

Topics addressed in this video include:

  • It’s not that difficult to hack a phone: it doesn’t necessarily require high technical skills
  • Different range of attacks: the closer you are, the easier
  • ‘Social engineering’ attack: what it means
  • Hacking a phone (technical) vs accessing a phone (not technical)
  • ‘Exploit’, numerical weapon: what it means
  • Parental control app: an example of a spy app
  • Not very difficult to hack into stuff, what is hard is not getting caught and being a ‘ghost’
  • High risk profiles vs low risk profiles
