Android has actively reached the mass and gain a huge popularity. So has the HTC brand handsets, which are becoming the first choice of people when it comes to Android. A recent research uncovered a bug in the logging system that gives programs a high level of access to sensitive information.
Trevor Eckhart discovered that any app installed on devices such as the Evo 3D, Evo 4G and Thunderbolt, that requests internet access can easily obtain data such as account credentials, GPS location, phone log information, SMS data and system logs. The news was made public on the site Android police. According to Android Police, this privilege also allows these apps to establish a connection with
htclogger on a local port and use it to read a variety of data, including the latest network and GPS location data, phone numbers from the phone log, SMS data and system logs. This has certainly made the users worried about the privacy and security. We advice users not to install suspicious software and if they do have a rooted phone, they should remove the pesky logger called Htcloggers.
