Android Security Issue

SOLVED
View solved solution
2: Seeker

Hi I have a Vodafone 845 running Android 2.1 which presumably has the issue of passing round unencrypted authentication tokens , reported in the following link.

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-13422308

 

This bug is aspparently fixed in Android Version 2.3.4 .

 

Question - What is Vodafone response to this in relation to the 845

 

1) Will this be fixed for the 2.1 Release  i.e.   a 2.1.1 release

2) Will there be a Upgrade available to 2.3.4 

3) Nothing will be done and users will have to accept potential security issue or upgrade to a new phone.

 

Note since it's a Vodafone branded phone, a response of contact the manufacturer I would regard as extrememly poor Customer Service.

 

I look forward to your response.

 

Regards

Ken

SONVOLT,

 

It's nothing you need to worry about, Google has fixed it server side
