  1. Android gives 'no permissions' apps access to sensitive info

    Security researcher publishes proof-of-concept app to demonstrate security issue in Google's mobile operating system.

    "Though this app uses buttons to activate the three different actions detailed above, it's trivial for any installed app to execute these actions without any user interaction," he wrote. Brodeur said he tested the app on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.


    No wonder I don't see much uptake in android devices when it comes to corporate sector. Security + Stability which is needed in such environment, unfortunately are the areas where android lags behind the competition in a major way.
