Viber for Android has been one of the most popular instant messenger applications with more than 100 million users, which is why the latest security glitch found in the application might be kind of a big deal. The issue allows you to bypass the lock screen of a smartphone and gain full access to its data.
The critical flaw allows you to bypass the lock screens of Samsung, Sony, LG and HTC smartphones. The bypass techniques vary from model to model, but the exploit uses the logic of popup messages of Viber.
Update: The officials from Viber Media have got in touch with us and have confirmed that they have fixed the issue. The latest bug free version of the app can be downloaded from the developer’s website. Here’s the direct download link.
