quote: While the vulnerability is potentially serious, there are several limitations that minimize the damage attackers can do when exploiting vulnerable apps. Chief among them is the fact that Android's permissions and sandboxing mechanisms prevent most Android apps from installing other apps without explicit permission from the end user. That will probably prevent the technique from being used to install malicious apps in most cases. As a backup, the "Verify Apps" setting available in all versions of Android could also be updated to stop malicious installations should attackers find a way to bypass the permissions and sandbox protections.What's more, Tim Wyatt, director of security engineering at smartphone security provider Lookout, said some researchers may be exaggerating the threat of attackers obtaining root privileges unless they can exploit a second, unknown vulnerability in Android's permissions and sandbox protections.
