08 May Google to Stop Apps from Monitoring Network Activity in Android P
It was revealed this week that Google is planning to patch a privacy gap in Android P where any app can monitor the network access of another app.
Developers noted the changes in Android’s SELinux rules for apps targeting API level 28 running on Android P in which only designated VPN apps are given access to some information. However, the vulnerability can still be accessed for some time as Android apps won’t have to target API level 28 until 2019.
It is said that the changes will come in the next release of the Android Open Source Project.
