Back to school and back to a weekly schedule of In The Weeds. Thanks for sticking around and helping this InfoSec Noob learn more.

If you’ve got an android phone, here’s something you need to be aware of:

I’ve started being more bold in my real-life “hacks” as it were. Following a friendly hack of my friend’s device, she learned you could lock your cell phone. Seriously, she just trusted that no one would try to hack her phone physically. She thought a hack would always come remotely. I showed her why it was bad to not have to do it and then referred her to this article. Next lesson may be the social hack. We’ll see. In the meantime, physical security and your phone:

As in weeks past, feel free to leave a comment here about any of those articles. Let’s learn from one another. Okay, have pity on the noob and let me learn from you.

Have another great week InfoSec geeks. See you next week.
