AirDroid Issues Update on Android to Address Previous Security Concerns

Last week, popular smartphone-to-PC software, AirDroid, came under fire for allegedly having “multiple” security vulnerabilities in their Android app when connected to an unsecure network, but also for seemingly pushing out other updates instead of fixing these potentially serious issues. AirDroid said that they would push an update to clean everything up within a couple of weeks and has now done that.

Through a statement sent to us, AirDroid confirms that their mobile app has been updated to v4.0.0.3 and PC apps to v3.3.5.3. These new versions “have improved [AirDroid’s] encryption mechanism as planned and fixed the issue regarding the recent concern over AirDroid’s security.”
