4.2.2 Android Closes The Door to AdBlock Plus

A couple of days ago came the update to Android 4.2.2, one review below, the various Nexus devices. With her and with new, come also some collateral damage to users of according to what services.

It is of AdBlock Plus, the service that blocks advertisement on our Android which debuted a few months ago, who has lost all room for manoeuvre.

And is that with this service used a security breach in the operating system to run, having been covered, disable it completely. The bug in question allowed applications with “internet access” permission actions like phishing (phishing web pages as the Bank) without root permissions.

The developers behind AdBlock asked to implement a new permit for those applications which want to act as a proxy, so we would know at least which applications are able to resort to such actions.
