Major security flaw in B885...

3 posts in this topic

I have noticed that even if you have a password on the G300, you are still able to access the files on the phone without needing to know the pin. For example, if you plug your USB cable into a computer,even with a security code, the 'USB CONNECTED' pop up still appears. This means if you ever lost your phone, people could look at your files without knowing the passcode.

that's a symptom of being rooted, you can do that on any rooted android device. you can disable usb debugging, but if you root, you're inherently insecure.

if you mean that the mass storage device is mounted automatically, then that's probably something stupid they've done in the stock rom, such as enabling autorun.

Oh, so it's not B885, it's me being rooted? Well thanks for the answer!
