Google’s Android Team to Release Security Patch

Following Sony's numerous security breach reports, Google is patching up any vulnerabilities on their Android handsets.

Due to the rise of numbers of hackers worldwide, Google’s Android team is going to release a platform fix to patch a security breach which leaves users’ personal information wide open to the hackers. Google told All Things D on Wednesday that “this fix requires no action from users and will roll out globally over the next few days.”

In a recent research conducted at the University of Ulm in Germany, it was found that almost 99% of Android handsets may be leaking its user’s login information when applications connect to Google’s servers through unencrypted WiFi networks. It then gives access to the user’s contacts, photos, calendar, and more. Handsets that are vulnerable to this sort of attack are those running the Android version 2.3.3, as well as the earlier versions.

An advice to Android users who have not yet updated or cannot update to version 2.3.4 is not to connect your handset to unsecured networks, until Google has released the said security patch.

Consider yourselves lucky that doing homework, research, shopping, dating, and Family Guy episode viewing can be done with a couple of keyboard actions and a click of a mouse. Although it does have its downsides as we’ve been introduced to the horrors of Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black.

Although the history of the internet can fill up an entire book as long as one of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings book, the Grasshopper Group managed to concoct a short and sweet infographic to somehow explain the chronology of the technology even for people with the shortest of short term attention span when it comes to reading.
