Newly found security breach would affect 99% of Android devices




A new security breach has been uncovered by bluebox researchers. According to the research the new breach would affect 99% of Android phones and tablets. Specifically, the trojan discovered by the company would be able to infect any Android device from Android 1.6 and up.


Curiously enough, the only smartphone that is supposedly immune to the Trojan is the Samsung Galaxy S4. In essence, any developer that would wish to do harm could very easily modify the code of an APK without breaking the digital signature allowing by this method for the installation of a Trojan leaving the user unaware of its existence.

The trojan would then be able to control the operating system as well as the apps that the user has installed. For those of you who don't know. A trojan is a type of computer virus that enters your computer and allows the programmer to remotely control the virus so that he/she can do whatever he/she wants with your device and the information contained within such device.

Apparently Google Engineers would be hard at work to solve this problem. However, when engadget contacted the Mountain View company for their view on the subject, they got the typical "no comment", a tad harsh considering the magnitud of the problem.
