HTC To Update Smartphones With Urgent Privacy Fix [bbc.co.uk]
HTC is to release an urgent update for several of its smartphones to fix a vulnerability which could leave personal information at risk.

The Android Police blog discovered that a user's GPS location and call logs could be easily accessed by net-enabled apps.

After investigating, HTC admitted the flaw could be "exploited by a malicious third-party application".

It said affected users will be notified of the update automatically.

"HTC is working very diligently to quickly release a security update that will resolve the issue on affected devices," a spokesperson said.
