Mobile phone security has become an important aspect of security issues in wireless multimedia communications. In this paper, the authors focus on security issues related to mobile phone cameras. Specifically, they discover several new attacks that are based on the use of phone cameras. They implement the attacks on real phones and demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the attacks. Furthermore, they propose a lightweight defense scheme that can effectively detect these attacks. In this paper, they are going to develop an Android application such that when a user loses their phone, the spy camera could be launched via remote control and capture what the thief looks like as well as the surrounding environment.
