Supervisor Johnson Warns of Spying through Android Based Flashlight Apps

 Supervisor Buster Johnson would like to warn the public of a new cyber threat affecting mobile devices.  According to a threat assessment report done by SnoopWall, an international counter surveillance security software company, the top 10 free flashlight apps in Android’s Google Play store contain malware that allow hackers to spy and gather personal information.  “Nearly half a billion installations of these apps have occurred causing major concern,” Supervisor Johnson, 1st Vice Chairman of the National Association of Counties Cyber Security Task Force Team, stated.  “While these apps may be a great convenience for users who need to find their house keys in the dark, they are posing a great security threat to every user who installs them,” Johnson continued. According to the report, users who install these apps are unknowingly giving hacker’s permission to locate them through GPS, read their personal information stored on the device, view personal photos and videos and even gain access to their financial information.  “Users who have installed the flashlight app and do mobile banking through their device are at a greater risk for exposure because of the vulnerability found in these apps,” Johnson said.  According to SnoopWall CEO, Gary Miliefsky, the average size of a flashlight app should be no more than 72 kilobytes.  The size of these flashlight apps are ranging anywhere from 1.2 to 5 megabytes.  “These hackers are embedding...

Arizona Gets $1.62 Back for Every $1 of Federal Tax 

A new study done by WalletHub, a personal finance social network, ranks Arizona #10 for being one of the states that is most dependent on federal funding.  According to Supervisor Buster Johnson, the ranking comes as no surprise.  “With the federal government owning nearly half of all the land in Arizona, it is no wonder our state is so dependent on funding from Uncle Sam,” Johnson stated.  According to Johnson, the combination of federally owned land and tribal land amounts to roughly 70%.  “When you add in the additional 12% that is owned by the state, Arizona taxpayers own a little over 17% of the land,” Johnson continued. According to WalletHub’s study, 39.4% of Arizona’s general fund revenues come from the federal government. “Our federal government is $17 trillion in debt.  At some point, the federal aid to states is going to have to decrease,” Johnson said.  While the state’s dependency on federal funding has significantly grown since the 1960s, the WalletHub report did note that federal taxpayers are getting a fairly good return on their investment.   According to the report, for every dollar a taxpayer sends to Washington, they are getting a return investment of $1.62.  For Mohave County taxpayers however, their return on investment is close to nothing.  “Mohave County generates roughly $21.01 per acre in property tax on private land.  On federal land, Payment In Lieu of...
