What Apps Are Not Safe

Mobile apps can be a nightmare for IT. There are millions of them, and most were developed without any concern for security. Some IT organizations have tried to counter potential threats from mobile apps by blacklisting programs they deem risky, but that's not always effective. Here are the top pitfalls of blacklisting, and alternative approaches to controlling the chaos that can result when a company's employees are working on mobile devices connected to the company network. An analysis by Appthority of the blacklists of its enterprise customers is revealing. In its analysis, Appthority ranks risk on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest risk. Eight of the apps in the Android top 10 had a risk score of 9, primarily because they contained malware. The other two apps-Boyfriend Tracker and Chicken Puzzle-scored a 6 because of data issues or privacy concerns. The seven riskiest apps scored a 7. Their sins included sending SMS messages or sensitive data without encryption.

Three programs-Pokémon GO, Plex, and Device Alive-scored a 6 because they did things such as access address books and cameras without permission and tracked a phone user's location. While these 20 apps were the most commonly blacklisted, there were plenty more in Appthority's list of 100 enterprise apps that were as risky or riskier to use. Many of those apps ask for permissions that can be a prelude to risky behavior-the ability to read and send text messages, for example, or access a phone's camera, microphone, and address book. Leigh-Anne Galloway, cybersecurity resilience lead at Positive Technologies, said the proof was in the permissions. The sheer volume of apps available to users can make blacklisting problematic. Georgia Weidman, CEO of Shevirah, a provider of tools for assessing and managing mobile device risk. What's more, one enterprise's risky app is another's anointed app. We can't look at every application deeply enough to say yes or no definitively about whether its risky behavior is due to a sloppy developer or someone with malicious intent, she added.

One of the riskiest apps for an enterprise may not appear on any top 10 list at all: email.

Making matters worse, employees often use productivity apps without IT's knowledge. Referred to as shadow IT, this practice has become prevalent within the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) culture, where people use their personal devices and download apps without informing IT, explained Michela Menting, digital security research director at ABI Research. This is not always done maliciously by the employee, she said. Often they do this in good faith, to increase their productivity or facilitate their work in some way, she said. By keeping IT in the dark, mobile users broaden the attack surface available to an organization's adversaries. Devon Kerr, principal threat researcher at Endgame, a maker of cybersecurity solutions for enterprises. One of the riskiest apps for an enterprise may not appear on any top 10 list at all: email. Email is risky for two reasons. Corporate credentials are needed to access a mailbox, and email is used to share a lot of sensitive corporate information. If emails or credentials are stored somewhere other than on a device or are accessible to a third party, in any way, the business is at significant risk, said Matt Hathaway, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Uptycs. For external programs, whitelisting should extend beyond email apps to all external mobile apps, added Positive Technologies' Galloway. Another approach is to host all applications accessible to a user's phone. Then when employees attempt to access corporate resources, they can do so only through the hosted apps.

39;s ability to control risky apps is limited.

That essentially makes the phone act like a remote desktop client. Daniel Kennedy, research director for information security and networking at 451 Research. , said that in a true BYOD environment, IT's ability to control risky apps is limited. Enterprise mobility management or mobile device management tools provide part of the answer by allowing for capabilities on employee-owned devices, such as access revocation, conditional access, data wipe, additional authentication, and data separation, he said. Gautam Aggarwal, CMO and head of products at NSS Labs, a security testing, enterprise research, and threat analysis company, agreed that keeping a tight rein on access is a key to reducing mobile app risk. That kind of visibility can be obtained through the use of security information and event management (SIEM) software. SIEMs collect information from multiple network sources and analyze that data for potential or existing threats. The tools monitor network activity and can generate alerts when suspicious activity is encountered, said Avast researcher Martin Hron. To fully address mobile threats, though, a SIEM may need additional help. For example, some tools can track security issues on mobile devices and make that information available to a SIEM through APIs. This allows the SIEM to centralize both device monitoring and incident response. SIEMs can help detect malicious activity from mobile apps if the company also uses an enterprise mobility management solution, which accumulates mobile device data, Positive Technologies' Galloway explained.

Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.

When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.
