OnePlus One gets delayed over 'security issues'

If things had gone the way they had been planned, the OnePlus One would have been sold off to a greater number of customers than we could have thought possible but unfortunately this is not the case and it is not going to be for anytime soon. This high-spec, low-cost Android handset worth $300 was supposed to launch in May but apparently the launch has been delayed as the manufacturers claim that they are working "perfecting some final issues”. So this clearly means that we cant be sure of when the phone is going to make its appearance.

The manufacturer’s statement was quite general and we cant possibly get any clue on what exactly these issues were but thanks to OnePlus's software partner, Cyanogen, the details have been posted to Reddit for further clarification.

According to Abhisek Devkota (aka Ciwrl), these issues are all related to some security vulnerabilities which were seen lurking in the OpenSSL software tool and this is something to be worried about because it is the same OpenSSL package that was also at the center of the Heartbleed scare. This major flaw was made public four days ago and it was decided that the shipment had to be halted right away.

About the Geek Mind

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.
