Motorola DROID: Android 2.0.1 code has security issue

It has just been reported that a potentially major security flaw has been found in the Android 2.0.1 code within the Motorola DROID handset.

As reported from BGR, the security issue will let a user bypass the much touted lock screen on your DROID, obviously putting your personal files at risk.

The problem happens when the DROID is locked and ringing. A user can simply press the ‘back’ key, which will then take you back to the home screen, leading to the obvious security threat.

The good news though, is that Google are aware of the issue, and are already working on a fix to solve the problem.

Let us know if you have anything to share on this matter, we’ll let you know when the patch is available.
