The Android Market Web Store which was launched by Google for its smartphone users is now actually posing a serious malware threat to its users. The web based market store was launched by Goolge last week to enable the users of Android running smartphones to update and install applications on their phone or phones through the internet without having to use the device as such.
But the security firm Sophos, has spotted a flaw with the acceptance mechanism of these phones. Sophos has also suggested Google to get rid of this application immediately so as to prevent the threats of any malware or spyware on the devices. Sophos opines that the lack of acceptance mechanism on the phones can enable third party members to interfere with the app installation process and install unwanted malware.
Looks like Google’s idea to bring down App store has hit a serious road block. Long way to go, Android.
