Google Said: Linux Flaw Is Not A Serious Android Security Issue

Google comments that Linux flaw is not a serious security issue for Android, as it was reported by Engadget. There was a report from Red Hat and security company, Perception Point, about the Linux flaw that could affect servers, PCs and up to 66 percent of Android, at this moment.

This security flaw affects the OS kernel, which can execute code of the root level on Linux kernel 3.8. Google responds that the device, which runs the Android 5.5 and later has the new security system. Google named it, Android SElinux Policy, where it can prevent the third party apps to access the code.

For the devices that run the Android 4.4 and older will also be safe because it doesn’t contain the vulnerable code on Linux kernel 3.8.

The previous report made the Android users alert about the adware that couldn’t be removed, although the device has been formatted.  Google said:

Since this issue was released without prior notice to the Android Security Team, we are now investigating the claims we believe that the number of Android devices affected is significantly smaller than initially reported.”

If you are the Android user, avoid downloading the app in the unverified third party app store. Furthermore, remember to always update OS on your Android device, once it’s available.
