The free mobile internet must be seen as a result of fast growth in smartphones and mobile social network adoption in India.

One thing I admire about Facebook. The company may be struggling to justify its valuation of 100 billion dollar company, by not making much yearly revenue; but it’s quick at implementing new things. In recent times many giants connected with web business, are claiming that mobile is the next revenue generator. Facebook seems to be doing real things to bring that activity on mobiles. I see its purchase of WhatsApp under the same light. The logic is simple. If user engagement is on mobile, then why not increase one’s efforts there.

India is third largest market for Facebook after the USA and Canada, wrt the number of subscribers. The Social giant claims 112 million or 11.2 crore monthly active subscribers, which is one among the fastest growing nations for Facebook. Add to this the quickly growing Whatsapp users in India and high penetration of smartphones in India , and you get a market, which is just right for Facebook’s mobile plans. A smartphone user has high likelihood of becoming an internet user. Facebook is a young company, and believes in the philosophy, you focus on your task and money will automatically come.

Facebook has added another effort to making its mobile commerce plans a success. Facebook is all set to launch internetDOTorg in India. This is an initiative to provide mobile internet access to those who don’t have it in India. The partner here is Anil Ambani’s Reliance Communications, India’s fourth largest mobile operator.

Data Services is an area the mobile operators in India are keen to make their mark. They see it as a key revenue area. If not now, then surely in future. About 60 million subscribers of RCom don’t use data services. By partnering with Facebook, to offer limited data services though the mobile internet through the free of charge, the RCom hopes to convert free users into those who pay. It’s not some unrealistic hope, as internet is addictive. You can find even housewives in fringe cities, towns and villages topping up mobile internet, to use WhatsApp.

About Facebook internetDOTorg

It’s a partnership between Facebook and six mobile and
technology companies, namely, Ericsson, Samsung, Nokia, MediaTek, Qualcomm and
Opera Software, launched in August 2013.

The concept is aimed at extending mobile use in developing and undeveloped countries across World.

Here in India, Facebook-RCom will launch of internetDOTorg mobile application, which will provide basic mobile internet services in categories such as health, education, communication, jobs and local information free of cost.

A Botnet Violates Visa Application Process at a Polish Consulate in Belarus. Being seen as the extent of malwares in Today’s World.

ESET, researchers have uncovered a piece of malicious code dubbed Malware Agent[DOT]PYO, which has been busy targeting Polish diplomatic mission in Belarus in the last couple of weeks. The cyber-criminals were capable of building a botnet that fill out forms for some Visa applicants at a Polish consulate in Belarus automatically. Yes, a Botnet filling Visa forms.

Downloader component of MSIL[FORWARDSLASH]Agent[DOT]PYO was distributed to computers located in Belarus using the Nuclear Exploit Kit. Statistics for the redirection chain shows that more than 200,000 computers were redirected to the exploit kit in about six days. What’s more, the botnet that was uncovered itself networked almost one thousand computers. ESET has provided the information on this incident to both Polish and Belarussian branches of Computer Emergency readiness Team (CERT).

We understand that obtaining an appointment for the visa can be quite difficult at times and thus special online process is set up to have the appointment confirmed, ” says ESET researcher Sebastien Duquette adding: “Some people resorted to writing scripts to automate the process and apparently someone decided to go a step further and build a botnet specifically for the purpose of filling out the forms.” 

MSIL[FORWARDSLASH]Agent[DOT]PYO was “inserted” into the system, and four days before the opening of the registrations its downloader component was being distributed ? and only to computers located in Belarus. The fallout: more than 200,000 computers were redirected to the exploit kit in about 6 days. Over the course of 5 weeks, 925 different computers connected to the botnet.

“Surprisingly large number for a botnet with such a specific purpose,” comments Duquette.

Here are 7 Whatsapp security Tips for WhatsApp users in India, elsewhere; against WhatsApp Security Risk.

Tips to protect you from WhatsApp Security RiskWhatsApp is growing fast. particularly in countries like India. A significant part of user engagement on Facebook, must surely have shifted to WhatsApp. when seen from that perspective, Facebook’s acquisition of Whatsapp, around the same time last year, appears to had risen from the same shift. Facebook must had though, if Whatsapp is the next most engaging network, then why not buy it. Now we are hearing that WhatsApp has not remained free; Whatsapp users in India and elsewhere will have to pay to use the Service. Lets not digress too much. Coming back to the topic, the Security maker ESET has provided some Whatsapp security tips to Whatsapp users. The tips to prevent Whatsapp security risk are a must, acknowledging the presence of more than 700 million monthly active members one the personal chat network, sending a combined total of 30 billion messages a month. That’s an enormous volume of personal information being communicated, and even though WhatsApp now encrypts all of its messages and data, it pays to be secure with your chats. Below are 7 security Tips to protect you from WhatsApp Security Risk.

 1. Lock WhatsApp

One of the best WhatsApp security tips is the protection against first Whatsapp security risk. It’s to protect your Whatsapp data and user profile. Protect the Whatsapp with a password or PIN. WhatsApp itself doesn’t offer such a function, but there are third-party apps that do. It might seem cumbersome but if you lose your phone, it’s going to prevent anyone else accessing your chats. That apart, Whatsapp is a personal chat messenger. Messenger and Chat Lock, Lock for WhatsApp and Secure Chat are three Android apps that do just that.

2. Block WhatsApp photos from appearing in photoroll

It’s fair to assume that your WhatsApp conversations might occasionally take on a distinctly ‘personal’ note. If you’re sharing images with your significant other, the last thing you want is for those images to appear in your general photostream, popping up when you let a friend swipe through your holiday snaps. This is a major Whatsapp security risk, if not to the app itself, but to the relationship.

On iPhone, it’s easy to fix this privacy leak: Go into your phone’s Settings menu >> then ‘Privacy’ >>’Photos’ >> and deselect WhatsApp from the list of apps whose images are fed into the photostream.

Android users will have to get under the hood a little bit. Using a file explorer app like ES File Explorer, find WhatsApp’s ‘Images’ and ‘Videos’ folders. Create a file within each called ‘.nomedia’. That will stop Android’s Gallery from scanning the folder.

Secondly, if you exclude WhatsApp images from your photoroll, and lock the app as above, it provides another layer of security if your phone is stolen or hacked into – but it won’t be a 100% bulletproof solution to one of Whatsapp security risk (s).

3. Hide ‘last seen’ timestamp

Not sure you want people to know when you’re coming on and offline? It may not seem like vital information, but if a scammer already knows some other things about you, adding that last piece of contextual information could prove useful to them – whether you’re awake or not; at home or overseas; coming out of the cinema or getting off a flight. Or you just might not want contacts – especially colleagues, or your boss – to know you’re checking WhatsApp at your desk.  A major Whatsapp secuity risk (whatsapp related risk) if you use it in office. You can disable or restrict who sees your ‘last seen’ time in WhatsApp’s ‘Profile'; ‘Privacy’ menu, in Android, iOS, Windows or Blackberry. Be aware though, if you turn it off, you won’t be able to see other users’ ‘last seen’ times either.

4. Restrict access to profile picture

Is your profile photo one you’ve used elsewhere – on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter? Maybe it’s even on your company’s website somewhere. If it is, and your WhatsApp sharing is public, anyone you’ve ever spoken to – even if you’ve just replied to an unwanted message – can download your pic from your WhatsApp profile and, using Google Image search, very quickly find out more about you. Set profile picture sharing to “contacts only” in the Privacy menu.

5. Watch out for scams

WhatsApp itself will never contact you through the app. Also, WhatsApp does not send emails about chats, voice messages, payment, changes, photos, or videos, unless you email their help and support to begin with. Anything offering a free subscription, claiming to be from WhatsApp or encouraging you to follow links in order to safeguard your account is definitely a scam and not to be trusted.

6. Deactivate WhatsApp if you lose your phone

WhatsApp offers users simple and effective security tips to keep control of your account if your phone is lost or stolen. As well as locking your SIM card through your network provider, WhatsApp recommends that you immediately activate WhatsApp with the same phone number on a different phone, with a replacement SIM. The app can only be used by one number on one device at a time, so by doing so you instantly block it from being used on your old phone. If that’s not possible, WhatsApp can deactivate your account.

7. Be careful what you talk about

Last but not least, use the same common sense you would with any form of digital communication. Don’t send personal information if you can possibly avoid it – addresses, phone numbers, email addresses – and never send your bank, social security or credit card details, or your passport or other identification details.
