Dropbox Android SDK flaw exposes mobile users to attack

2015/03/11

Securityweek - (International) Researchers at IBM Security discovered a flaw, dubbed DroppedIn, in the Dropbox app's Android software development kit (SDK) that could have enabled attackers to connect to mobile apps using the kit to a Dropbox account they control, and transfer sensitive information or inject malicious data into apps. Dropbox released a fix for the vulnerability that was distributed to other apps that use the same SDK.
