OnePlus send again their users’ data to a Chinese firm without permission
Oneplus technology is one of the best technology, but now a bad news publish against it. The surprising news is that OnePlus send again their users’ data to a Chinese companies without permission. The Company explained that it was using that data to improve its product and services, with declaration of the update that will give users an opportunity to control this redundant feature called user’s experience program. For now, a new report has surfaced which claims that a OnePlus app (factory installed) can collect data from the phone and send it to servers in China without user’s information or consent.
According to a French researcher who appeared on Twitter, by the name Elliot Alderson, OnePlus is collecting user’s data without permission through an app. The data was being sent to a famous Chinese firm called TeddyMobile, which has already been working with Oppo mobile.
File that is involved in sending users’ data is dubbed to be a “Badword.txt” which comprises of different keywords, as well as “Chairman, Vice President, Deputy Director, Associate Professor, Deputy Heads, General, Private Message, shipping, Address, email,” and such others. The file is then duplicated in a zip file called pattern alongside six other .txt files. All these files are apparently used in“in an obfuscated package which seems to be an #Android library from teddymobile.”
In the meantime, the Chinese firm is also facing another problem as the credit card info of 40,000 clients may have been stolen, and OnePlus technology has confirmed the earlier hack attack on its website.
Additionally, the company added, “In the open beta for HydrogenOS, our operating system for the China market, the identified folder exists in order to filter out what data to not upload. Local data in this folder is skipped over and not sent to any server.”
