Researchers have found that several accepted Android apps, including Facebook, AliExpress, and WeChat, come with anachronous software apparatus that accommodate unpatched aegis flaws.

Native vulnerabilities in third-party mobile apps are one kind. Those at the operating system level are another. Both necessitate that device makers and software vendors issue patches on a timely basis to abate the risk of such exploits.

But what if these apps accommodate old software apparatus that harbor vulnerabilities which have been long fixed? This is absolutely what advisers over at cybersecurity firm Check Point Research set out to find.

“To verify our antecedent that long-known vulnerabilities may abide even in apps afresh appear on Google Play, we scanned them for known patterns associated with accessible versions of open-source code,” advisers Artyom Skrobov and Slava Makkaveev said.

Mobile apps about make use of readily accessible off-the-shelf apparatus (aka libraries) to accomplish a specific functionality. As is often the case with any piece of software, when vulnerabilities are baldheaded in such open-source libraries, app developers need to ensure that their apps are adapted to accommodate the fixes as and when they’re available.

But Check Point advisers said they found dozens of Android apps —  such as Yahoo Browser, Facebook (and Messenger), AliExpress, SHAREit, and WeChat — which absorb age-old accessible libraries.

The flaws affect audio and video playback libraries — CVE-2014-8962, CVE-2015-8271, and CVE-2016-3062 — that could potentially allow an antagonist to assassinate approximate code, all of which have been fixed over two years ago.

Instagram was initially articular as one of the afflicted apps, but has since been ruled out. “Instagram isn’t impacted by CVE-2016-3062 and we’ve had a patch in place since it was surfaced,” Facebook told Check Point.

It’s worth pointing out that the attendance of the flaws alone doesn’t mean the apps are accessible to exploits. It just goes on to show that app maintainers need to be more accurate about ensuring their apps are up to date.

Unfortunately, as a user of these apps, there isn’t much you can do to keep your accessories secure, as these flaws abide even if they’re adapted to the latest version.
