Security startup Bluebox Security has raised $18 million in a round of Series B funding to advance its vision for mobile security. Total funding for Bluebox Security now stands at $27.5 million.
Bluebox rose to public notoriety in the summer of 2013 with the disclosure of what is known as the Android Master Key vulnerability—a flaw that potentially could have left nearly all Android users at risk. The company is also noteworthy because of its executive team, which includes Jeff Forristal as the chief technology officer. Forristal was once best known by his hacker alias Rain Forrest Puppy and for being one of the first security researchers to discuss SQL Injection vulnerabilities.
