Android users should probably be aware of this security vulnerability when browsing on an unencrypted public wifi connection (discussed here on Lifehacker and other places).
Apparently on versions Android 2.3.3 and earlier (the IRT Verizon contract phones included), there’s a login process that’s vulnerable to programs that could grab your Facebook, Twitter, Google, and other credentials. It’s not supposed to be a problem on secured networks (like UST’s) or your phone’s 3G or 4G connections. So you may want to avoid using (or auto-connecting to) public wifi connections at your local coffee shop.
Hopefully Verizon will soon make available an upgrade to Android 2.3.4, which corrects the problem. Thanks to John Kinsella and our old buddy Jonny Quatro for providing this info.
