If Google Controls The Remote of Smartphone

Android

Google has agreed without the knowledge of users through a back door to 260,000 Android phones. The group wanted to remove a Trojan – criminal and inspired.

Lenin was convinced that a good end justifies any means – a vision that today is more controversial. Fact, however, the debate is not how Google shows straight. The group has never asked to 260,000 smart phones with access to the Android operating system to remove a malicious program. Access was a conscience for that purpose only backdoor installed operating system. The irony: The developer of a nasty backdoor Trojan used.

In the last week, unknown in the overall application market for Android 58 programs had to contain a Trojan. DroidDream, as it is called the program to take advantage of mobile phones all were charged with one program. While Google removed the affected applications in the area of discharge, but a total of 260,000 phones at this stage were already contaminated.

Google has used a second time then your ability to access Androidhandys. Using the remote application removal company turned off the Apps back defective in all affected phones.

Remote access is done with good intentions, but is controversial. Because the owners know nothing about and certainly have no chance to avoid it. The company not only can remove applications, but access to the complete operating system and change each setting. As a result, this means that an Android phone (Apple can with the iPhone and iPad also the Working Group Microsoft System 7), the owner is not true, because effective control exercised by the Group. Whenever it is in good, maybe this is not a problem, but no one can verify that it stays that way.

And now Google wants to go a second time for its own back door: The group has not only eliminated the Trojan is also updating Android Market software security tools that will be installed March 2011, the affected devices in the coming days . This means that all unauthorized changes to the phones back. Users are informed in advance and only after that is installed with an e-mail.

Another problem: criminals use as backdoors. The probability of getting a back door open Google planned and safe discharge. On the basis of more protective device is thus made ultimately uncertain.
