Brand new Android smartphones shipped with 146 security flaws
The new android phones that were just recently shipped out have uncovered 146 CVE-level flaws in devices from 29 smartphone makers. The security issues are not a problem while using the phone they actually come pre loaded with these problems. The culprit is a range of software specific to each of the manufacturers. It is installed in addition to Android itself or its Google applications. The only way to patch these flaws is to have the smartphone manufacturer to be told about the issue and to have them fix the issue. Users can’t fix it themselves because the applications can not be de-installed.
