A new study by the University of Buffalo’s (UB) School of Engineering and Applied Sciences has found that voice-based smartphone apps such as Siri and WeChat can expose make you vulnerable to the growing security threat of voice hacking, according to a report on Phys.Org.
Using only a few minutes of audio samples, attackers can replay your voice convincingly enough to trick people and advanced digital security systems to steal money from your bank account.
A UB team of engineers have used a few tools already on smartphones, including the compass, to develop a prototype app that has proved highly accurate in blocking machine-based voice impersonation attacks.
The team will present the study this week in Atlanta at the Electrical and Electronic Engineers’ 37th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems.
