Android Lollipop Can Be Hacked

 Android Lollipop Can Be Hacked

September 18, 2015

Complex passwords are the way to beat some attacks, but for phones running the latest version of Android, that's not necessarily.

Locked phones require a passcode. But there's a way to get around that. Just type in an insanely long password. That overloads the computer, which redirects you to the phone's home screen. It's a time-consuming hack, but it's actually easy to pull off.

In a report published, computer security researcher John Gordon documented the vulnerability and posted a video of the hack.

It only affects smartphones using the latest version of the Android operating system, Lollipop.
