Google has been trying hard to make android mobile operating more secure than ever with new updates. The hackers continue to stay one step ahead and now claim to have found a new loop hole. Several security researchers in the Black Hat hacker conference that took place at Las Vegas showcased the proof of concept methods to exploit loopholes in different software. Black Hat hackers manage to inject malicious code in the Google Android mobile operating system by exploiting the bug in Near Field Communication module and Chrome browser.
This is a very serious bug considering that several financial, banking and other business institutions are looking forward to use the NFC for mobile payments. If the technology has some ambiguity then there may be slow down in the implementation process.
Miller along with another security researcher also demonstrated a loop hole in the Chrome which could be exploited to take control of the device. Theses researchers confirmed that fix has already been issued by Google for the Chrome mobile web browser for the Android devices. With the latest version of the app for Android the Chrome browser bug has been fixed and can be downloaded from the Google Play store.
Google has been very active in filling up the gaps and not leaving any security slip-ups with its Android mobile operating system. New "Bouncer" Technology has also been employed for reviewing and testing the apps submitted for approval and to be published through the Google Play Store. Like other operating systems, Android OS is also not faultless but it can be made by patching the loopholes as quickly as possible.
