    Google Begins Rolling Out Fix for WiFi Vulnerability



    Google is now beginning to roll out a fix for the wifi vulnerability issue that took the internet world by storm yesterday. It has been stated that through an open WiFi connection, our Android devices were prone to having their personal information stolen. Luckily, the Google Team is on top of it and has just released this statement.
    “Today we’re starting to roll out a fix which addresses a potential security flaw that could, under certain circumstances, allow a third party access to data available in calendar and contacts,” a Google spokesperson said. “This fix requires no action from users and will roll out globally over the next few days.”
    Time to put this one to bed. It’s impressive that Google can fix these issues OTA, while carriers have such troubles. But, this is something we’re grateful for! We’re hoping no one became a victim to this back door.

    Sounds very suspicious to me :

    Google CEO : Uhmm were having problems accessing their permissions on the phones cause they have rooted and blocked us

    Technician : Yeah , no worries well just release a fix for that globally
    "There is something feeble and a little contemptible about a man who cannot face the perils of life without the help of comfortable myths. Almost inevitably some part of him is aware that they are myths and that he believes them only because they are comforting. But he dare not face this thought! Moreover, since he is aware, however dimly, that his opinions are not rational, he becomes furious when they are disputed."
    — Bertrand Russell (Human Society in Ethics and Politics)
