Android users need to be aware of a serious security issue with a hugely popular Google Play Store app that’s been downloaded hundreds of millions of times. The Go SMS Pro app is a popular messaging service which has been downloaded by Android users more than 100million times from the Google Play Store. But security researchers have discovered a major vulnerability with the Android app that could expose private photos, videos and other files that have been sent by users.
And, according to a post by TechCrunch, the app’s makers have not fixed the issue despite being notified about in months ago.
In August security researchers from Singapore-based cybersecurity firm Trustwave discovered the flaw with Go SMS Pro and contacted the app makers about it.
Devs were given a 90-day deadline to close up the vulnerability before the security experts went public with their findings.
However, after this date passed without hearing back from the makers of the Android app Trustwave released details of their research.
