Google to fix the Android wi-fi security flaw
Google is rolling out a patch to fix the security flaw in its Android phone operating system.
The update is global and will download automatically to users’ phones. It will work with all versions of the Android OS and Google expects the rollout to be completed within the week.
Google’s official statement said,
‘Today we’re starting to roll out a fix which addresses a potential security flaw that could, under certain circumstances, allow a third party access to data available in calendar and contacts. This fix requires no action from users and will roll out globally over the next few days.’
A fix was already in place for the latest version of Android (2.3.4), although the researchers that discovered the problem pointed that only 0.3% of Android had this version of the software.
