On-topic? Maybe? Android leaves BitCoin Wallets at risk

From: Chad Smith 

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ Chad, Good post. Most of the bitcoin wallets were affected due to a bug in Android itself. Here is a copy-pasta from the Wallet app that I use: What's New Version 3.15 IMPORTANT: Because of the Android SecureRandom class has multiple severe bugs that render it useless for cryptographic purposes, this version rotates all private keys. You will need to make a fresh backup of your wallet. It will not contain your old (insecure) keys, so keep your old backups around just in case. More info available at: http://bitcoin.org/en/alert/2013-08-11-android The wallet app I use ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.schildbach.wallet ) was patched within a few hours of finding this bug. If anyone is using a Bitcoin Wallet on your Android, please goto the market and make sure you have the latest update!
