Security hole in Android

Posted on September 15, 2008. Filed under: android, Google, Hacks | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Yess, as if windows wasnt enough, A cool security hole has been detected in Android Mobile Platform that reveals your complete “Google credentials”. Obviously its the pre-release version that has been detected with this bug and ofcourse is out there for everyone to see in its beta form.

The credentials stated is the information entered in Google Talk application which via another query can be exploited to reveal information in plain text.

Ta ta ta ta.. lets not blllooow… this outa proportion ( author says that in “The Joker” Style which is impossible to replicate). Android remains in beta stage. Development is On.. HTC is coming up soon.

Even if its in Beta Stage, the fact that its Open Source, brings a variety of threats.
The Base Application developers need to make a very secure practical platform. Nevertheless, We’ll reserve our judgement until after the Official launch which shouldnt be too far.
