HTC Android Security Flaw Could Expose Private Information
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Several HTC Android handsets, including EVO 3D, EVO 4G and Thunderbolt, are susceptible to a security flaw, according to a report from Android Police.
The report says a flaw could expose users’ private data, including emails, phone numbers and SMS data.
The suite of logging tools that were recently added to the HTC gather personal data. The tools reportedly do not adequately protect that data.
Android Police states that HTC has not addressed the flaw, but that they are looking into the matter.
Until HTC offers an official fix, owners of affected HTC devices can only remove the vulnerability by removing HTC Sense software, or rooting the device and then removing HTC’s logging tools.
