Android users beware: several HTC Android devices (including EVO 3D, EVO 4G and Thunderbolt) are vulnerable to a flaw in security exposing users’ personal data, reports Mashable.
HTC recently added logging tools to these devices that gather personal data such as email addresses, phone numbers, and SMS data. However, these tools apparently do not protect this data. As a result, any app that requests “android.permission.INTERNET” permission can access this information.
While HTC has not yet fixed the flaw, owners of these devices can remove HTC Sense software, or root the device and remove the logging tools explained here.
