Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Androids leaking bank account logins and private data

Android apps leak private data, reveal bank account logins, and fail security

Hey, Android users: You may want to think twice before making those money transfers, posting embarrassing social updates, or taking naughty pics. A group has created a fake Wi-Fi hotspot and attack tool to spy on data being sent via Android apps, successfully capturing bank account logins, disabling security programs, and injecting codes into the data streams of popular apps used by millions. Fortunately, the group was just a bunch of researchers investigating security systems. But the results proved startling and are going viral on the Web. They showed nearly 8 percent of the apps tested (the most used ones in the Google Play store) had poor scrambling systems that couldn't prevent "man-in-the-middle" attacks and leaked private data. [Source BBC News - Android apps 'leak' personal details]

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.
