Google: Eνισχύει την ασφάλεια του Android

11 Apr

Νέα χαρακτηριστικά που ενισχύουν την ασφάλεια του Android ανακοίνωσε η Google, μέσω των οποίων θα γίνεται συνεχής παρακολούθηση και έλεγχος των εκτελούμενων εφαρμογών ώστε να εξασφαλίζεται πως είναι ασφαλείς.

Στο Android ήδη γίνεται έλεγχος ασφαλείας μιας εφαρμογής πριν την εγκατάσταση της αλλά τώρα ενεργοποιείται η app scanning τεχνολογία που χρησιμοποιείται στο Play Store της Google και αν το λειτουργικό εντοπίσει προβληματική ή ύποπτη λειτουργία σε μια εφαρμογή θα ενημερώνει με pop up τον χρήστη με τον ίδιο τρόπο που κάνει Verify μια εφαρμογή πριν την εγκατάσταση τώρα.

Verify apps: now protecting you continually
Building on Verify apps, which already protects people when they’re installing apps outside of Google Play at the time of installation, we’re rolling out a new enhancement which will now continually check devices to make sure that all apps are behaving in a safe manner, even after installation.

In the last year, the foundation of this service—Verify apps—has been used more than 4 billion times to check apps at the time of install. This enhancement will take that protection even further, using Android’s powerful app scanning system developed by the Android security and Safe Browsing teams.

Because potentially harmful applications are very rare, most people will never see a warning or any other indication that they have this additional layer of protection. But we do expect a small number of people to see warnings (which look similar to the existing Verify apps warnings) as a result of this new capability. The good news is that very few people have ever encountered this; in fact, we’ve found that fewer than 0.18% of installs in the last year occurred after someone received a warning that the app was potentially harmful.

Even though the risk is miniscule, we’re committed to making sure that the best available security protections are available to all Android users. This includes service-based protections such as Verify apps, as well as security features within the platform itself.
