AirDroid-Vulnerabilities Open It Up to Huge Security Risks, Remove It Now from your Smartphones now
AirDroid is a danger that exposes the mobile to hackers. According to the security firm Zimperium, the app uses a form of static and easily detectable encryption key when sending data updates and private user information from mobile phone to PC and vice versa.
So, attackers who are on the same network can exploit the weakness to push fraudulent updates or view potentially sensitive user information, including the international mobile equipment identity and international mobile subscriber identity designations that are unique to each phone.
When installing, the app is asking all its users approval for “accessing contacts, device location, text messages, photos, camera, microphone, Wi-Fi and information about the calls and the device identity”.
