Android Fault Leaves Bitcoin Digital Wallets Open to Theft
The discovery of a fault line in Android has left digitalwalletsopen to the threat of theft. This loophole in the system was found by Bitcoindevelopers. They are quite concerned over the consequences of this glitch in the system. Each single Bitcoin wallet is affected by this system failure. Blockchain.info wallet, BitcoinSpinner and Mycelium Wallet are three other entities that have felt the seismic shock of this major upheaval. Android is basically meant to come up with strongly coded strings of random numerals. These of course allow your Bitcoins to remain secure. There are services like Mt. Gox and Coinbase that won’t undergo an iota of change. They are exchange front-end facilities and their personal keys are not created on the contraption. But Bitcoin has felt the brunt of the burden.
One of the solutions offered by the developers is to set up a new address via an iron-clad random number generator. The next step would be to parcel all the cash in your wallet back to your own address. Meanwhile, updates for the apps that have been hit hard by this phenomenon are already in the pipeline. Like every person has his weakness, there is vulnerability in Bitcoin too. And it has left the financially secure dazed and confused. Since the original problem lies in the system itself, it has left every Bitcoin digital wallet open to security threats from prying intruders.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
