A geospatial study identifies the most vulnerable areas to COVID-19

05 June 2020 -- op-net-admin

Some Spanish areas are more likely than others to suffer a coronavirus outbreak and, therefore, would require greater protection measures against a second wave of COVID-19. The study of mobility during confinement indicates this, based on geospatial analysis. It’s been carried out by researchers from the University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) in collaboration with TAPTAP Digital, using additional data from Predicio and Tamoco.

A study analyzes pre-installed software on Android devices and its privacy risks for users

19 March 2019 -- seltime-editor

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the IMDEA Networks Institute, in collaboration with the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) at  Berkeley (USA) and Stony Brook University of New York (USA), have carried out a study that encompasses 82,000 pre-installed apps in more than 1,700 devices manufactured by 214 brands, revealing the existence of a complex ecosystem of manufacturers, mobile operators, app developers and providers, with a wide network of relationships between them. This includes specialized organizations in user monitoring and tracking and in providing Internet advertising.  Many of the pre-installed apps facilitate access to privileged data and resources, without the average user being aware of their presence or being able to uninstall them.
