Intel: Delete this app

General | Apr 10, 2018 | Master3395

Has three critical security holes.

Tuesday this week, Intel announced that the company's "Remote Keyboard" app would be lowered. The reason is software failures and security challenges.

Three critical mistakes
Recently, the processor manufacturer discovered three critical security holes in the app, and that's why development is terminated and it is no longer available. The holes allow an attacker to access the keyboard, but also to run malicious code on Android devices. The problems are so serious that Intel, instead of trying to fix them, instead chooses to shut down the app.

On Intel's security web pages, the company recommends users to uninstall the app as soon as possible. The app has been removed from the Google Play Store but has been downloaded over half a million times.

The "Remote Keyboard" folder was launched in 2015 and could, among other things, be used with the Intel Compute Stick machines.
