HTC held true to its promise to look into the security vulnerability
that surfaced over the weekend, an apparent glitch that allows any app requesting internet access to take a peek at a user account information, GPS location, system logs, and other potentially private data. While HTC assured us that user data isn't at risk of being harmed by its own software, a third party malware app could exploit the security flaw and cause some trouble. The outfit is already building a patch, and will ship it out in an over the air
update after a short testing period with its carrier partners. Until then? HTC
recommends steering clear of apps from publishers you don't trust. Hit the break to see the official statement.
