Google plugs Android APK security hole, says partners have patched code

Sponsored Links

Bluebox Security unearthed a potentially devastating Android security issue last week that would allow hackers to turn legit APKs into malware. Less than a week later, Google's Android Communications Manager, Gina Scigliano, told ZD|Net that the bug has officially been squashed and that partners have received the right patches -- Samsung is already shipping devices that are inoculated against the exploit. Play by the rules by installing apps from the Google Play Store and you never have to worry, but if you want to be on the safe side, give Lookout Security a spin.
