--Google Fixes Android Flaw
(November 7 & 10, 2008)
Google has fixed a critical vulnerability in its Android operating
system. The flaw can cause keystrokes to pass directly to the root
shell and be executed with root user privileges. For instance, texting
the word "reboot" would actually cause the device to reboot. The flaw
affects G1 handset users running Android firmware updates RC 29 and
earlier. Google is rolling out the fix to all G1 devices.
