Duo Labs: More than half of Android devices still vulnerable to encryption bypass attacks


#1

Back in May, Duo Labs covered series of critical Android vulnerabilities published by Gal Beniamini. At the time of Duo Labs’ blog post, Labs’ data showed that 60% of Android were vulnerable to the attack Beniamini demonstrated.

On June 30, Beniamini demonstrated another round of serious vulnerabilities.

Duo Labs recently analyzed their dataset again to measure how many of these phones would be vulnerable to the most recent attack because they haven’t installed the May Android update.

Compared to 60% of Android phones that were vulnerable to the Android attack detailed in Beniamini’s post in May, the security posture of the dataset has improved slightly, with 57% of Android phones vulnerable to the latest attack.
