Security experts have revealed another security flaw in the two most popular mobile platforms. Earlier they discovered a security flaw in the mobile browser which any one can use to attack your mobile.
Now, they have found a new flaw. I don’t think you want others to access your photos in your mobile phone. I don’t think you want any apps to upload those photos silently to their own servers. If you use iOS, if you have given the permission to access your location to an app, that app can access your photos without you noticing! In Android, they don’t want any permission. Anyone can access your photos which were stored in your SD card.
Scary isn’t it? The good news is, both Apple and Google have accepted their flaws and have promised to fix them. So, you’ll be able to secure your photos in the near future!
