Recently, security experts have detected some big security faults in Android and iOS. One vulnerability will allow any installed application to access our photos without our permission. That’s how we discovered that these mobile platforms have some permission issues.
What if we have a rooted Android device? If our device is rooted and if it have a custom ROM, then the risks are high. Now the apps have much more freedom to go around your device and even touch some system files. To solve this problem, the leading custom ROM developer CyanogenMod have decided to disable root access by default. But still you can enable it when ever you want.
I don’t know whether we can enable it for some apps and disable it for the rest. It will be great if we can do this because some trusted apps like the Avast anti-virus want root access to do their job!
