Children’s tablets are full of backdoors for cybercriminals and hackers

From Emirates 24/7:

“The findings: you won’t like what they found in the backend of your child’s tablet. Lurking in there are malicious codes, Trojans, unencrypted data transfers, enabled USB debugging, riskware and even adult apps like dating applications, making your child’s tablets an open invitation for cyber criminals and child abusers.”

Tom’s Guide reports:

“Several top-selling Android tablets made for children have serious security flaws that could expose kids to malware and identity theft, a new report from a mobile security provider finds. Unpatched software vulnerabilities and hidden “backdoors” appear to be common, and some tablets even transmit childrens’ names, birthdates and photos across the Internet in plain text, exposing youngsters to greater risk of identity theft.”
