    Can a malware message be crafted that creates push/toast notification?


    I believe push notifications are not tracked. This evening I received a toast popup from what appears to be a malware author who has gleaned what appears to be a decade-old password and username. The message body was something like "This is the hacker who discovered your pwd" with strange characters intermingled in the message. Of course, I am bothered a bit but not amazed that a very old password is floating around the internet, but I am surprised and concerned that the toast notification was able to be sent directly to my windows account. It seems only trusted applications and the O/S itself can do so, and checking which ones were open, I noticed only Outlook 2016, which can and does send toast notifications. However, I didn't find any corresponding emails with this purported sender (something like "Tild1 K0nrad" ) in recent emails.


    Any ideas what may have caused it?


    Thanks in advance,

    Alex

    about WP7 push notification

    hi guys,

    i can use toast push notification to call up my application, but I have a question about this.

    When application start, how could I distinguish the application is call up by the push notification or call up by human click the application?



    Thanks all.

    Can a malware message be crafted that creates push/toast notification?

    Push/toast notifications on WM10 not working

    I use a Lumia 550 with Windows 10 Mobile. On the phone there were the preinstalled apps "MSN Nachrichten" und "MSN Finanzen".

    In theses apps I engaged the push notification on the first of January this year. Unfortunately I havn' got any notifications yet.

    So I looked into the adjustmants menu for Notifications and Infos. Under the topic Show notifications of apps I found a list of apps with a key beside in ON-Position. The APPs "MSN Nachrichten" and "MSN Finanzen" are not listet there. I assume, that this
    has an impact to the problem. Push Notifications on the listed apps are working, e.g. "Outlook-Mail" and "Outlook calendar".

    Appreciate any help.

    Systeminformation of my phone: Windows 10 Mobile, Version 1511, Build 10.0.10586.29
