Android Police: Massive Security Vulnerability in HTC Devices

Massive Security Vulnerability In HTC Android Devices (EVO 3D, 4G, Thunderbolt, Others) Exposes Phone Numbers, GPS, SMS, Emails Addresses, Much More

Quote:
I am quite speechless right now. Justin Case and I have spent all day together with Trevor Eckhart (you may remember him as TrevE of DamageControl and Virus ROMs) looking into Trev's findings deep inside HTC's latest software installed on such phones as EVO 3D, EVO 4G, Thunderbolt, and others.
These results are not pretty. In fact, they expose such ridiculously frivolous doings, which HTC has no one else to blame but itself, that the data-leaking Skype vulnerability Justin found earlier this year pales in comparison.
That must be the longest headline Android Police has ever posted.

Dear me; that does sound something of an embarrassment for HTC. Let's hope they get this vulnerability fixed soon.

I'm a big fan of HTC, mostly because of how much I love my TP2. Even with all its limitations, I'm not even tempted to upgrade to anything out there, and won't until an Android version of the phone comes out.

But that looks pretty ugly. They got some 'splainin to do.

As a side-note: Justin Case... Were his parents being funny or is that a pseudonym? I saw the name and had a flashback to the early 90s and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego.

Ouch, HTC. And, to think I was about ready to leap onto a Thunderbolt here soon. I may have to hold off for a while longer until I see this trend get fixed.

Thankfully, only the HTC EVO 3D, EVO 4G, and Thunderbolt are affected. There should be a patch out from HTC shortly.
