Autonomous technologies have been rapidly replacing the traditional manual intervention nearly in every aspect of our life. These technologies essentially require robots to carry out their automated processes. Nowadays, with the emergence of industry 4.0, robots are increasingly being remote-controlled via client-server connection, which creates uncommon vulnerabilities that allow attackers to target those robots. The development of an open source operational environment for robots, known as Robot Operating System (ROS) has come as a response to these demands. Security and privacy are crucial for the use of ROS as the chance of a compromise may lead to devastating ramifications. In this paper, an overview of ROS and the attacks targeting it are detailed and discussed. Followed by a review of the ROS security and digital investigation studies.

Mobile attack approaches can be categorized as Application Based Attacks and Frequency Based Attacks. Application based attacks are reviewed extensively in the literature. However, frequency based attacks to mobile phones are not experimented in detail. In this work, we have experimentally succeeded to attack an Android smartphone using a simple software based radio circuit. We have developed a software “Primary Mobile Hack Builder” to control Android operated cellphone as a distance. The SMS information and pictures in the cellphone can be obtained using this device. On the other hand, after launching a software into targeting cellphone, the camera of the cellphone can be controlled for taking pictures and downloading them into our computers. It was also possible to eavesdropping the conversation.
