Android, why do you have so many flaws? Its over 350!!

by on Nov.03, 2010, under Technology

According to a new study, everyone who has an Android based phone is at risk. Everyone. So guard your loins!

Google’s popular Android mobile platform kernel contains more than 350 software flaws, one-fourth of which are high-risk for security breaches and system crashes, a newly released analysis of the open platform has found.

The Coverity Scan 2010 Open Source Integrity Report reveals the findings of testing by Coverity of more than 61 million lines of open-source code from 291 open-source projects, including Android, Linux, Apache, Samba, and PHP. Coverity specifically studied the open Android kernel 2.6.32 of an HTC Droid Incredible smartphone, but the report says other Droids likely have the same defects.

Google says around 65,000 Android devices ship each day, and industry experts project the smartphone platform will become the second largest worldwide by 2012.

The test found 88 high-risk defects in Android (25 percent of all defects) that mainly encompassed memory corruption, memory illegal access, and resource leak-type flaws that could crash the system or result of loss of data. The defects were thought to be in the shipping version of the HTC Droid Incredible, the report says.

But there’s some good news here, too: “The Coverity Scan results for the Android kernel we tested show a better than average defect density, meaning this specific kernel is shipping with fewer defects than the industry average for software of this size,” said Andy Chou, chief scientist and co-founder of Coverity, in a statement. “However, a significant number of these defects are the high-risk types that our customers typically fix before shipping their products to market. We believe that highlighting these risks proactively provides developers and OEMs with an opportunity to fix these defects before they become a problem.”

Meanwhile, close to 50 percent of the flaws Coverity Scan found in all open-source software tested were “high risk,” and the most common defects include memory corruptions, NULL pointer references, and resource leaks, according to the report, which is available here.

The ghost that apparently haunts my girlfriend

by on Nov.01, 2010, under Pictures

This is a picture of my girlfriend. When she was about eight years old! I figured that in the belated-spirit of halloween I should post this here.. it is unedited (minus some cropping and a red oval added).

I think that this looks like a perfect shape of a ghost wearing a tuxedo and a bow-tie! Click the picture to make it a little bigger, and you can even make out eyes, mouth, and hair! The figure looks pretty translucent, and if you compare the fine edges of the ghost figure to my girlfriend in the middle, you can tell that something just doesn’t look right!

What does everyone else think, I really really want to know!!
