[Resolved] "Personalize" app updater has changed
Hey. I'm getting a notification to update something, but i've never seen an update notification like it before.
It's a down-arrow in a circle; it says 'application updates available, tap to download the aplication data'.
the programs name is 'updater'.
tapping the notification shows:
application updates available
would you like to install the following application updates?
- Personalize (updates)
Download via any available data connection ( )
download via Wi-Fi or cable only (O)
later | Detail | OK
clicking Detail shows
systerm security improvement
i've never seen an update presented to me like this before, and checking with avast shows that Updater has only ever downloaded 0.01MB, so i guess i've never used it before... updater can act as an account authenticator, modify secure system settings, read phone state and identity, full internet access... personalize can read phone state and identiey, use authentication credentials of an account, full internet access...
It's probably nothing, it's just that i've never been asked to update like this before, so it set alarm bells ringing; usually it just says something along the lines of 'update available for BBC iPlayer' or whatever and has a different symbol...
HTC Evo 3d, android 4.0.3 if that helps
