Today we held an event on Twitter called “Ask Flexilis!” where we took any and all questions people on Twitter had on anything mobile, whether it was about the Carriers, Handset makers, new technologies, security, new about mobile and current events in mobile, or even questions about Flexilis.
Posted below is the transcript from the event, Enjoy!
Q: @heisenthought: ”What kind of mobile attacks do you guys worry about the most?“
A: @flexilis: “Any attack really. “If it threatens your data, your livelyhood, or your mobile experience we want to be there to stop it. The current iPhone vulnerability is one of the big ones right now, hopefully apple provides a fix soon”
Q: @jgrubbs: “will you be adding the ability to edit my contacts via the web that are then re-synced back to my phone?”
A: @flexilis: “It’s something we’re looking in to, our focus so far has been more backup than sync, & we’re making sure we’re doing that right first.”
Q: @tlrobinson: “How do you go about finding vulnerabilities in phones?”
A: @flexilis: “our security researchers are some of the best. they sift through the code, test it all in a million ways and more, they rock!”
