  Android vulnerability neutralised

Photo of article Smart phones and tablet computers – once the latest must-have devices for technology geeks – are becoming increasingly more popular with the mainstream. The Android platform is now one of the most popular platforms with over 300 million Android devices in use since February and 700 000 devices being activated with each passing day. One of its main attractions is the open source software that allows a huge community of program developers to write applications. But with so many people contributing to this innovation, the operating system is open to bugs and security holes. In a new study, however, researchers in Italy may have neutralised any potential problems. Their study was funded in part by the SPACIOS (‘Secure provision and consumption in the Internet of services’) project, which is backed with EUR 3.35 million under the 'Information and communication technologies' (ICT) Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
