This week, I came across this interesting article talking about certain low-end Android phones secretly communicating users’ data and texts to China. In fact, this has been all over tech news all week, so I’m sure most of you are already aware of this. To me, this raises two important security questions that have nothing to do directly to either Android or those low-end phone manufacturers.
It’s pretty evident that Android has been around for a while now. So, first, why did it take home land security so long to uncover something of this magnitude against American consumers? Secondly, this article’s title mentions that “No one knows why,” but I’m wondering whether no one really didn’t know why this has been going on and for how long if this security flaw claim is founded.
Below is the Article.
