HTC Investigates Vulnerability in Android Phones


On the heels of researchers claiming a massive vulnerability on Android phones, HTC announced that ir would investigate the issue.

Researchers over the weekend said that several HTC Android phone models contain a security vulnerability, which affects HTC EVO 3D, EVO 4G, Thunderbolt and possibly its Sensation line, according to researchers, Trevor Eckhart, Artem Russakouskii and Justin Case.

In a statement released to the media, HTC said, "HTC takes our customers' security very seriously, and we are working to investigate this claim as quickly as possible."

"We will provide an update as soon as we're able to determine the accuracy of the claim and what steps, if any, need to be taken," it added.

Eckhart attributed the security hole to modifications HTC made to the version of Android used in those phone models. Those modifications allow any program on a phone with Internet access to have access to almost all data on the device.
