    Came across this post the other day, on apparently many back doors with open ports on Google play apps, does DTEK app detect such intrusions?

    Whoops. Millions of Android phones are wide open to hackers

    Android is for hackers.
    Out of 24,000 apps scanned 410 apps were found to be "potentially" vulnerable applications.
    That hardly supports your statement.
    Unless you can provide data sheets to back it up along with helpful suggestions on how to avoid this issue , then let's agree that this is simply
    "Your Personal Opinion!"

    I don't think DTEK checks ports, it's more for integrity/permissions.

    Anyway, here's the article itself: https://eecs.umich.edu/eecs/about/ar...pen_euro17.pdf

    The issue at hand is that the apps they surveyed do little if anything with regards to authentication/integrity of the connection. To fix this requires the developers to invest time and effort in making sure the connection between their app and their server/another phone/a PC isn't vulnerable, but that's the hard way. The easy way is to just open a port and let the traffic flow, which is the problem.
