Security firm finds android info been sent to China!
It has been reported by security researchers that there is a secret backdoor in android phones. The backdoor sends almost every piece of personal information to servers that are based in China. The firmware on the android phones is managed by Shanghai Adups Technology. The firm has reported that it is on 700 million phones worldwide, which is including phones available in the US.
The firm has said that the firmware provides companies with data for customer support, but a further analysis by Kryptowire revealed lots of things. The analysis revealed that the software will send full bodies of text messages, contact lists, full telephone numbers and call history and also the unique device identifier. All this information above is everything you would need to keep someone under surveillance.
