Cracking Bangalore Buses' Web Security - Part 2

Jul 22, 2011

Well, it’s been over two weeks and I still haven’t heard back from the guys at EAFT, so here’s the followup to Cracking Bangalore Buses’ Web Security: Part 1

  1. Press the Home key. This will take you to the main Android menu
  2. Press the Menu key. A small menu will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap “About”
  3. An about page will appear, describing the company (EAFT) whose initiative this is. At the bottom of the page is the company’s website and contact email address, both hyperlinked.
  4. Tapping on the website link will open the browser and redirect you to the company’s website WITHOUT asking for your credentials. From there, you can type any URL in the URL bar and visit that website, without there being any record of who you are
  5. Tapping on the email link will open Android’s email accounts app, where you can create a new Gmail account WITHOUT the need for an existing email address (just leave the “Secondary email address” field blank) and from there, you can send and receive emails, again without there being any record of who you are
