Google fixes 107 vulnerabilities in Android


#1

Google has fixed 107 vulnerabilities during its monthly patch cycle for Android. In the worst case an attacker could exploit one of the vulnerabilities to take full control over an Android device. To do so the user had to open a malicious email, visit a malcious website or receive a malcious MMS.

Everytime i hear about Android vulnerabilities, my first thought is “I hope someone uses these vulnerabilities to make rooting software.” I’m sick of my device not being able to become a root user on my own device!:angry: On any half-decent OS, pre-installed apps can be easily removed. I guess Android simply isn’t half-decent.:sweat:

There are vulnerabilities in anything though but the key thing is they keep being patched so at least that keeps the battle moving in the right direction.
