Google's Android G-1 on T-Mobile hacked with a serious security problem

The first smartphone to run on Google's Android operating system -- T-Mobile's G-1 -- has run into newly identified security problems within a few days of going on sale nationwide. There is a flaw in the Web-browsing software that could be exploited. In this case, a hacker could divert the G-1 browser user to a rogue Web site. These attacks are similar to what unprotected computers' users face when they are connected to the Internet. The problem has already been addressed by Google software security experts. Google is working on a browser software patch for Android. T-Mobile is coordinating with Google on a plan to soon deliver this update over-the-air to customers' G-1 devices. For people currently using the phone, I hope this matter will not negatively impact the experience with the device.
