Google fixes the over-hyped security bug from last week, now OEMs need to issue updates

Remember that super scary sounding Android security bug from last week? It’s been fixed. According to ZD|Net, Google has already sent the patched code to their partners. Samsung, the only one that really matters considering how many Android phones they ship, has already fixed the issue, though they’re not exactly saying when they did that.

In short, should you worry? If you’re a good little boy or girl who doesn’t side-load applications, then you shouldn’t even be reading this article. If on the other hand you grab applications from torrent sites or whatever other shady place on the internet, then you deserve what’s coming to you.

How much is that game you really want? $1.99? Do you not have $1.99?

    Some say that not even Google Play Store is 100% secure when it comes to installing apps. Maybe it’s just hearsay. Paranoia is in bloom when it comes to the Internet.
