HTC Android Phones May Have "Massive Security Vulnerability"

If you are the owner of an HTC 3G/4G smartphone, there is a good chance you may be vulnerable to your downloaded apps taking permissions with your phone without your authorization. Your personal data could be at risk.

Apparently, HTC installed a suite of logging tools - for a purpose that’s still unclear - but neglected to secure the data that was being logged. "It’s like leaving your keys under the mat and expecting nobody who finds them to unlock the door," Russakovskii writes.
