The android sits on loop holes, a major threat to the security of the android has come out just a couple days before. It has wrecked the users of android, and people are looking how to move about and applying tricks to make a strong come back from this wild scare of android operating system.
WHAT IS ALL THE BUZZ
There is no hiding about the fact that millions of people are using the android operating system for some years. All over the world there seems to be a huge Mexican wave slashing around on the fact of news that huge bugs were found in the security team of blue box. If you are still unaware of the fact that whether your android device is also the one affected by the security scare of android then the answer could be a big YES. You can only lie down and move on if your devices are packed before android version 1.6. As all the devices that were packed in and after 1.6 version shattered by the latest security threat of android blue box.
If you have your particular device rooted or have custom made ROMS’s then this whole news would be of no interest as there are completely a different set of rules and regulations in those devices retaining to security and privacy. And if the devices are more than 1.6 version of android and you have unmarked the very famous “unknown sources” as off from the settings of the operating system, then you may be the least to hit by the news, as the security scans and privacy is not a matter for you.
WHAT IS THE SCARE?
Whenever an app developer submits an app to an app store, he always gets his own cryptographic key. This key is considered as the identity of an app. As many a times the version gets updated, one unique thing in the process of updated version is that, your cryptographic key remains the same. Rather it can be said that the digital signature just remains there and no overlapping or overwrite options are involved here. But nothing is to be noted here is if while updating a particular version app you miss the cryptographic key, then you may have to submit your app with fresh ratings and reviews and you will get a fresh cryptographic key.
Most of the systems apps that are used to install in Samsung, HTC, Sony and all the reputed phones do have the access of the administration access to each and every as they are tagged as the trusted apps by the companies. But at the end of the day, the point lies here is they are all apps , and the problem which can be found with non trusted can also creep in trusted one, if not easily but with tried techniques.
It is this particular issue that the blue box can came about, they have seen some apps and come to the conclusion that now a day’s most people are going to an app and entering and doing all the nasty and harsh things that can be done with the coding but keeping the cryptographic key its own position and updating the apps. This is how the people and the companies are coming under the scanner of application hackers. They are dangerous as when a person is going in those app store to get the apps they see a updated version and they download to get more updated news and related information rather fall in trap of all nuisance activities and trash stuffs.
IS IT REALLY A BIFG DEAL TO THINK
Well this question can be answered quite diplomatically as Google will actually now initiate their rules and process with the android application updates. It is normal for Google to update their system and to make changes in the coding. Many are even saying that the Google are itself giving the birth to software an as well hackers.
THE REMEDIES TO FOLLOW:
• Use only Google Play to download apps
• Always go ahead and read the reviews before to checking to download a particular app
• Always try to be alert about turning the settings off from the unknown sources, so that there are no smug.
Try following these, then you can succeed in the security trivia of android.
