Trustlook Introduces the First Android FakeID Vulnerability Security Scanner

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - July 31, 2014) - Trustlook Inc., a provider of innovative next-generation mobile security solutions, announces the first FakeID vulnerability detection tool, FakeID Security Scanner, which helps users detect FakeID vulnerability on Android phones and tablets.

The Android FakeID vulnerability is caused by Android's lack of a certificate-chain signature verification mechanism which could allow malware to impersonate trusted applications without any user notification. For example: attackers could access your phone's private financial data by masquerading as Google Wallet.

In order to assist users, the team at Trustlook has released its FakeID Security Scanner within just 24 hours of disclosure. The scanner can be accessed standalone on the Google Play Store (http://goo.gl/DVeROx). For additional details about FakeID you can visit the Trustlook research team blog (http://goo.gl/iHkTqp).
