When Epic said it would skip the Google Play Store with Fortnite's Android release, it raised eyebrows among security experts. Wasn't it creating risks by encouraging gamers (some of whom didn't understand the potential dangers) to install non-Store apps? Well, it did... although not quite in the way you might have expected. Epic Games has patched a Google-discovered vulnerability in Fortnite's original Android installer that would have let intruders download and install malware. The exploit used a man-in-the-disk attack that took advantage of Epic's initially flawed storage handling to intercept download requests and load nefarious content.
