Android Vulnerability Detected

The Android smartphones have a potential security issue.  The hole pertains to use of devices on free Wi-FI networks.  When I mentioned this to a co-worker, the first they asked why use Wi-Fi when you have 3G.  A good point but there are those who may have their wireless on their phones for the location service.  Details of this issue are covered in the Financial Times article I have linked.  To check if your phone has the latest updates click on Settings, go to About Phone, and then click System Updates.
