A new report has surfaced online revealing that Xiaomi Smartphones with the pre-installed “Security” app are suffering from a serious security flaw. The report revealed that the security flaw allowed hackers to “inject traffic” that was going to the “Security” app. This allowed the app to run malicious code on the smartphone that could let attackers take over the smartphone to install malware or even steal the user data present on the device. It also indicated that the reason for the flaw was the basic design of the Guard Provider app, the “Security” app that comes installed with all Xiaomi smartphones.
