Wi-fi vulnerability in Android fixed

If you have users in your organization who are using Android phones (and you probably do, considering the growing popularity of the platform), you’ll be glad to know that Google has rolled out an update to fix a vulnerability that allowed for accessing data on the phones when they connect to an unencrypted wi-fi network. The fix forces users to connect to Google servers using HTTPS secure connections to prevent an eavesdropper from capturing the authentication tokens used to validate the devices.

This fix applies to Android versions prior to 2.3.4, which are still on most Android devices. Find out more here:
