    Hi,
    After reading about the vulnerabilities in Android recently I used the xray tool to check my Infinity and found it was vulnerable to Gingerbreak. The tablet is running the latest patched version of JB.
    would appreciate any help in how I fix this
    Thanks

    Gingerbreak was patched in Android 2.3.3 or 2.3.4 by Google. I doubt Asus somehow re-enabled the exploit. I bet you simply got a false positive from the xray tool. Run it 2 more times. If it still says it's vulnerable, I suggest you email Asus about it. I may even try it on my tablet (even though I'm unlocked and installed a custom ROM).

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply - I have run the tool many times and it comes up every time - will email asus and see what I get - did you try it on your tablet?

    You should mail the author of the tool and ask why a device running Android Jelly Bean is returning positive for a gingerbread bug that Google has already fixed. I don't think ASUS has anything to do with this.
