Hi! I've read about the Google Glass vulnerability, that is based on the exploiting of the malicious QR code. I'd like to know how does it work and if there is a way to protect myself from that, because I'd like to buy a pair of those glasses, when they will reach the market.

Hello, Paul!

We at jammer-store.com are aware of the problem and inspecting it right now. If you are a fan of Google Glass, you probably know that there is a lack of input methods for Google Glass and in order to configure it properly you will have to use special QR codes. But such a code is a simple way to encrypt information and in a matter of fact that information can be malicious. That's where the vulnerability, discovered by Lookout company was hiding.

Using a malicious QR code they were able to force Glass to connect their Wi-Fi hotspot and then they've simply used Wi-Fi protocol vulnerabilities to monitor and intercept all the data, that Glass sends and receives form the outer world. Than, with help of SSLstrip they have managed to gain access to network traffic, including messages, emails, video hangouts, etc.

Modern mobile gadgets are vulnerable, indeed, but Google has already fixed that problem. Exploit worked, because Glass has executed QR codes without user's notice, new fix made Glass to notify users about the execution of QR code. That's not a 100% fix, because malicious code still can be executed, and the data you have on your smartphone may be in danger. That's why we recommend to use Bluetooth signal jammer, to be able to block connection between Glass and your smartphone, when you really need that.

Thanks for your question, I hope, I've managed to help.
