A number of severe problems have been discovered within the Samsung Knox security system in Android smartphones.
Three vulnerabilities affecting Android devices running Samsung’s Knox security feature were recently revealed in a paper presented by Uri Kanonov and Avishai Wool, researchers from Tel Aviv University.
The security flaws affect versions of Knox on older Samsung devices; in particular, Knox 1.0 — 2.3 running on Android up to version 4.3. Knox was designed to cater for the professional who must use their personal device for both work and play, and so acts as a sandbox or container to securely separate different applications and data.
