The Verge: Android bug exposed COVID-19 contact tracing logs to preinstalled apps

The Verge: Android bug exposed COVID-19 contact tracing logs to preinstalled apps. “The Android version of Google and Apple’s COVID-19 exposure notification app had a privacy flaw that let other preinstalled apps potentially see sensitive data, including if someone had been in contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19, privacy analysis firm AppCensus revealed on Tuesday. Google says it’s currently rolling out a fix to the bug.”
