Apparently, according to a study by the hardware company, almost 87% of people who own an Android smartphone could be at risk of having their personal data and private passwords used by hackers. Thus the researchers affirm that any device that does not use Android 4.4 – the famous operating system called KitKat – could be vulnerable.

The conclusions of the vulnerability of the system were discovered nine months ago, but it was now that IBM gave a press conference to explain it in detail. Thus, the IBM team detected at that time a storage failure due to overload in the Android KeyStore in the default version of the operating system.

Given the internal policy of the company, in the first place it was communicated to the members of the Android security system, in charge of the hacker-proof programming, before revealing it to the private public.
