Yesterday, I commented on a BBC article that suggested that up to 99% of android were at risk of someone gaining access to services like Google Calendar, Contacts and Picassa over public Wi-Fi networks.
Google has acknowledged the security flaw very promptly and fixes the problem at the web service end which means that no update needs to be rolled out to all Android phones.
In an official statement, Google said it is already rolling-out a fix for the security flaw, which could affect all Android users, except those already running Gingerbread (2.3.4).
“This fix requires no action from users and will roll out globally over the next few days.”
