    According to a new study by German researchers from Leibniz University in Hannover and Philipps University of Marburg, a large swath of Android apps apparently do not implement their SSL correctly. The researchers sampled 13,000 apps and found that 1,000 of them exposed users' personal data. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    The researchers were able to determine that it wasn't really a flaw in Android, so much as it was sloppy or lazy implementation of the SSL. This seems rather disturbing. What do you guys think?

    Thanks for the tip, furbearingmammal!
