Xiaomi Phones a Security Threat

According to Indian Air Force report. This is not the first time that Xiaomi has been accused of being a cyber security threat.

A Dutch Computer Science student, Thijs Broenink, who analyzed his Xiaomi mobile device discovered the presence of a backdoor. That could allow an attacker to silently install any app on the phone.
The student decided to investigate the presence of pre-installed apps and services on the ROM used by his Xiaomi smartphone. Trying to discover their purposes, report said.

In the past, we have already reported the presence of pre-installed apps that pose a threat to users’ security and privacy.

In March 2015, the security firm Bluebox discovered pre-installed malware and other security issues with a Xiaomi Mi 4 mobile device.

According to reports, Indian Air Force has warned its officers and their families against using Xiaomi Smartphones.  Citing security concerns. In an alert issued by The IAF to air warriors and their family members, It clearly accuses Xiaomi.  A Chinese Smartphone maker of sending user data to remote servers located in China and is certainly a security threat.

Is Xiaomi safe to use?

For me, No! It is not safe to use a device having fishy and not properly declared pre installed app, running background. Therefore, Xiaomi is a security threat. There are several malware pre-installed on Xiaomi device and Xiaomi company knows that. Many developers have already come out to stage complain against the Chinese company.

Are Xiaomi smart phones really a threat to security? Xiaomi a security threat. With issues like forwarding personal details, SMS, address book to a particular IP in China (as found out by F-Secure) and Indian Air Force banning their use?
All the companies, saving your data has some security risk. Take Apple for example. Celebrity pics leaked & none could do anything.

I just gave you an example brother. Xiaomi also has some risk involved but that never means other companies don’t. Hackers & thieves are everywhere, it’s you who has to save himself from them.I know that the Government has banned Indian Airforce for using never means Indian Govt. is always right.
