Google Says Android Security Fix Being Pushed Out
Google today acknowledged a security issue recently discovered by researchers that left Android device users' authentication details exposed when used over unprotected Wi-Fi networks. In response, Google said it is pushing out a security update that should fix the problem. "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," Google said in a statement. "This fix requires no action from users and will roll out globally over the next few days."
