                                        An obsolete code has been discovered in 19 popular and regularly updated Android apps on the Google Play Store, report Check Point’s cybersecurity experts. The developers of these applications have not deleted that code even years after the discovery of these vulnerabilities.
By exploiting these breaches, a hacker would theoretically be able to execute malicious commands without the knowledge of the users.  

“Three security vulnerabilities, discovered more than two years ago, make hundreds of applications potentially vulnerable to remote code execution,” said Slava Makkaveev, IT security expert at Check Point. “The user can not do much to protect his smartphone” regrets the expert.
