Earlier some days ago , there was news about the Android Malware and Master Key for Android. In relation to the same , some more fixes are appearing for a pair of highly dangerous vulnerabilities exposed earlier this month in the Android OS. Webroot and ReKey who are a collaboration between Northeastern University in Boston and vendor Duo Security have released software on Tuesday that detects if any Android device is vulnerable.

The vulnerability found by Bluebox may affect more 900 million devices made over the last four years running and Android versions 1.6 and higher are prone because they are dangerous since they allow an attacker to modify an Android package file which is used to install an application, without affecting its original crypto-graphic signature , and nothing as yet is done in core about it. Security researchers have found numerous examples of popular applications that have been modified to deliver secret code that can spy on users.
