LONDON, July 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Specialists have discovered a vulnerability that threatens personal data of Android devices’ owners, Financial Times reports with reference to experts, who have revealed the flaw in the software.
“It can be used to take over a specific app or an entire device, what is stored on that computer by the user,” says Jeff Forristal, Bluebox’s chief technology officer and lead researcher. “So online banking is at risk, work email is at risk, it just comes down to what the device is used for.”
According to his estimates, 99% of Android devices were vulnerable, but the company has no evidence that the hackers had taken advantage of it.
Bluebox informed Google about the vulnerability in April. After that, the US-based corporation issued an update for Android. Thus, people who haven’t downloaded the new version of software yet, remain at risk.
Earlier, Nikiforov stated about the shifting of Russia’s government from iPad to Samsung tablets. He said that this was not an introduction of any restrictions or sanctions towards US-based Apple Corporation.
Before that, ministers used iPads at government’s sessions and meeting, but now they use Samsung tablets. “This are specially protected devices that may be used for processing confidential data. Part of the information at the government’s sessions is of confidential nature, and these devices (Samsung) completely meet the requirements and have undergone the strictest certification,” Nikiforov explained.
