Bug Found in Android Gmail App

All Android users need to be aware of this bug that has been discovered in the gmail app. The bug allows anyone to send spoofed emails where the email looks like it was sent by someone else.

Generally, the only things the hacker needs are a working SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) and a mailing software. However, a local researcher found she could hide her real email address and change her display name so that the receiver could not actually see who the real sender was.

There are a number of precautions users can take to try and prevent this from happening to them. To learn more about this issue and the steps to take to protect yourself, click here.
