Researchers Warn Almost all Android Devices Prone to Attack Allowing Hackers to Steal Personal Information
Last week, security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski made some hefty claims that iOS devices are vulnerable to attack due to undocumented surveillance services that Apple has included in its mobile operating system. Apple quickly refuted the claim and made those services more transparent for those suspicious of their intent.
This week, Bluebox Security came out with a report claiming that Android phones are vulnerable to attack through an uninspected certification process, which allows hackers to access payment history, account credentials, emails, and more.
The way both companies handled the accusations are completely different. Although each has a valid reason for why they approached the issue the way they did.
