When it comes to security, privacy and privacy rights, there’s a new battleground in the smartphone wars.
A hacker known only as “Sebastian” has recently released a tool that allows users to remotely access a smartphone without the user knowing.
The hack was discovered by security researcher Daniela Vincenzo from security firm Errata Labs.
She said the tool allows anyone to remotely hack a smartphone, even if they don’t have the password.
“We’re talking about the ability to take control of a phone remotely,” Vincengo told the BBC.
The tool was developed by a team of security researchers who called themselves the Sceptics Team. “
What you’re going to do is you’re downloading this tool and you’re able to log in and see what the app does.”
The tool was developed by a team of security researchers who called themselves the Sceptics Team.
It’s not the first time a hacker has released such a tool.
Last year, security researcher Jeremy Stoltz, who also worked for the UK’s Serious Fraud Office, revealed a tool called “Sophos” that allowed anyone to take over a device without a password.
He said that in addition to the “sophos mode,” it was also capable of “sideloading” the app.
“It’s basically a Trojan horse, a malware Trojan horse,” Stoltzz said.
“They can do a Trojan-horse that they could take over the phone and basically make all your stuff on the phone private.”
The Sceptic Team, however, did not provide details of how the tool was able to access a phone without the owner knowing.
“This is a new one that we’re aware of and we’re not going to share more details until we have more information,” said a spokesperson for Netflix, the company responsible for streaming Netflix content.
Netflix did not respond to requests for comment from The Verge.
The Septics Team also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“I think the point that’s been lost in all of this is that the real issue here is about the privacy and the security of your device,” Viscenzo said.
The hacker has also been known to make the tool available to anyone.
A tweet from the Septic Team stated, “We don’t want to give away our sources and secrets.”
It is unclear whether the hacker will be able to get ahold of the tool and take control over a phone.
Viscengo is also warning users that “Safeguarding your data and privacy is the only way to be safe.”
