A recent report by research firm, Strategic Analytics recently indicated that Xiaomi has finally found its way back on the top 5 chart of global smartphone vendors with a 6% share of the market in Q2 2017. That means the company phones are popular both in China and outside. So too, its MIUI Custom ROM is also a popular one as millions of people who use the company’s devices also invariably use MIUI. A new security report by eScan Antivirus has fingered the MIUI OS as have some security vulnerabilities.
The discovery centers on the Mi mover app which is a systems app that allows users to easily transfer settings and data from their old phones to the new one. Unfortunately, the app is said to come with a bug which lets it override Android’s sandbox protection thus allowing the app to open without any sign that a password is required. The risk in this flaw is that someone who has the phone can clone all your apps and smartphone settings.
