The Heartbleed BugAlthough Heartbleed only affects versions 4.1.0 and 4.1.1. Android, the truth is that this operating system allows applications developed for it to use native content libraries in which there may be vulnerabilities to this security flaw.

Using these vulnerabilities, hackers can hijack network traffic, redirect the application to a malicious server, and steal content and personal data from the memory of mobile devices.

In addition, the report indicates that among the 17 applications cataloged on Google Play as “Heartbleed detectors” only 6 analyze the rest of the apps that the user has downloaded to their device in their search for vulnerabilities.
