As Google's Android operating system has soared into the top ranks of mobile platforms, a pending question is security. Now researchers from the University of Ulm in Germany have reported that 99 percent of Android-based devices are susceptible to attack.

The researchers found that devices running Android 2.3.3 or older are most vulnerable when logging in over open Wi-Fi because of an insecure ClientLogin authentication. ClientLogin is used for authentication by applications, and it passes an account name and password through a wireless connection.
