The guys over at Max Mobile just let us know that they have updated their flagship software, Max Mobile Security Suite to version 9.0. Even though BlackBerry incorporates Trend Micro in scanning their third party apps for their customers in BlackBerry World, with 10.2.1, it is going to be a different game altogether. One of their biggest updates this time is the Advanced APK Scanner.
Advanced APK Scanner will allow us to scan APK files not only for malware, but also allow us to see its permission and privacy risk. It checks & displays the APK’s permissions and also the privacy risks to the user. It will then categorize the android app into 3 levels depending on its privacy risk: low, moderate and critical.
