Another Android Masterkey

Well, the security community is a bit scornful of Bluebox’s description of the vulnerability it’s due to talk about at Black Hat as a Masterkey: it’s a little hyperbolic given the unexpectedly simplistic nature of the bug.

However, John Leyden today reported another, apparently similar Android issue, reported by the Chinese ‘Android Security Squad’. There’s a Google translation of the original Chinese article here.
