Regardless of what his lifestyle might lead others to believe, Izuku really didin't have a death wish. On that note, he was painfully aware that he was lingering in an alleyway that was only growing darker with every passing minute, next to a murder scene, with a potentially very dangerous villain about whose crimes and quirk he knew absolutely nothing.

Hacker Eva Galperin Has a Plan to Eradicate Stalkerware | WIRED
Russian security firm Kaspersky announced today that it will make a significant change to how its antivirus software treats stalkerware on Android phones, where it's far more common than on iPhones. Rather than merely flag those spy apps as suspect but label them with a confusing "not a virus" message, as it has for most breeds of stalkerware in the past, Kaspersky's software will now show its users an unmistakeable "privacy alert" for any of dozens of blacklisted apps, and then offer options to delete or quarantine them to cut off their access to sensitive information.

Hacker Eva Galperin Has a Plan to Eradicate Stalkerware
First, she's calling on the antivirus industry to finally take the threat of stalkerware seriously, after years of negligence and inaction. She'll also ask Apple to take measures to protect iPhone users from stalkerware, given that the company doesn't allow antivirus apps into its App Store. Finally, and perhaps most drastically, she says she'll call on state and federal officials to use their prosecutorial powers to indict executives of stalkerware-selling companies on hacking charges. "It would be nice to see some of these companies shut down," she says. "It would be nice to see some people go to jail."

In her talk at Kaspersky's Security Analyst Summit next week, she also plans to demand that Apple fix a problem that enables stalkerware. iPhones, she says, should alert users if they've been jailbroken—a technique that removes an iPhone's security restrictions so that users can install unofficial apps—which she says is the most common way stalkerware winds up on an iOS device. Determining if an iPhone has even been hacked in that manner has been a challenge for years, though the problem has been less severe in recent versions of iOS, for which jailbreak tools usually require the phone to be connected to a laptop and the process repeated every time the phone is rebooted.

The third and perhaps most dramatic fight Galperin plans to pick in her SAS talk will be with law enforcement. She argues that existing computer crime laws like the Wiretap Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and state-level two-party-consent recording laws apply to a significant fraction of stalkerware companies, which openly describe their products' intended use as secretly tracking cheating spouses or significant others. She names New York, California, and Washington as states where she believes attorneys general might be receptive to her calls for a crackdown. "Here are these companies. Here are the ways they’re already breaking the law," she says, summarizing her argument. "Have you considered prosecuting them? That would be cool."

Hacker Eva Galperin has a plan to eradicate stalkerware • WIRED
Andy Greenberg:
<p>"Full access to someone’s phone is essentially full access to someone’s mind," says Galperin, a security researcher who leads the Threat Lab of the digital civil liberties group the Electronic Frontier Foundation. "The people who end up with this software on their phones can become victims of physical abuse, of physical stalking. They get beaten. They can be killed. Their children can be kidnapped. It’s the small end of a very large, terrifying wedge."

Now Galperin has a plan to end that scourge for good—or at least take a serious bite out of the industry. In a talk she is scheduled to give next week at the Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit in Singapore, Galperin will lay out a list of demands: First, she's calling on the antivirus industry to finally take the threat of stalkerware seriously, after years of negligence and inaction. She'll also ask Apple to take measures to protect iPhone users from stalkerware, given that the company doesn't allow antivirus apps into its App Store. Finally, and perhaps most drastically, she says she'll call on state and federal officials to use their prosecutorial powers to indict executives of stalkerware-selling companies on hacking charges. "It would be nice to see some of these companies shut down," she says. "It would be nice to see some people go to jail."

Ahead of her talk, Galperin has notched her first win: Russian security firm Kaspersky announced today that it will make a significant change to how its antivirus software treats stalkerware on Android phones, where it's far more common than on iPhones. Rather than merely flag those spy apps as suspect but label them with a confusing "not a virus" message, as it has for most breeds of stalkerware in the past, Kaspersky's software will now show its users an unmistakeable "privacy alert" for any of dozens of blacklisted apps, and then offer options to delete or quarantine them to cut off their access to sensitive information.</p>
