Black Friday Deals Tracker is Live

Using unsecured Wi-Fi networks was found to expose all the data on your Android Phone.

Germans found a security flaw in Android phones this week that exposed users on open Wi-Fi networks. Google is moving fast to limit this exploit. In a statement Google says that the fix will be rolled out globally over the next few days. Android phone users do not have to manually update their phones.

Not sure what this means. Does Google have a secret patch mechanism in Android or is the fix not in the OS itself? Anyhow your Android phone should soon be a bit safer to use again. Via AllThingsD.
