Quick Note: Backdoor in ES File Explorer

ES File Explorer is a popular file explorer app for Android. Even though it is proprietary, I must admit, that I came in touch with it too some years ago.

As Techcrunch reports, a security researcher now detected a backdoor in the app, which allows users on the same local area network as the victim to access the contents of the phone.

This example shows, how important it is to have free software, which can be audited by everyone.

    Is there any vulnerable still running in my phone even after delete it?
