Hi @UIDAI 👋! Do I have to explain you how real #Android developers are working?

On his official #Playstore account. @UDAI published today an app called "NewTest" with blank screenshot and testingtestingtesting[...] as description 🤦‍♂️

#AadhaarFail
They also have a 3rd app called "testBeta (Unreleased)" 🤦‍♂️. Yes, they called an "Unreleased" an app released on the PlayStore 🤦‍♂️...

@UIDAI maybe your interns can read this link support.google.com/googleplay/and… to know how to set up an alpha/beta tests...
Regarding how they used their #PlayStore account, I'm pretty sure they are unable to update the official #Aadhaar #android app because they lost the release key. Please @UIDAI, show me I'm wrong

Hi #Aadhaar 👋! Can we talk about the #BenefitsOfAadhaar for the #India population?

I quickly check your #android app on the #playstore and you have some security issues...It's super easy to get the password of the local database for example...🤦‍♂️

play.google.com/store/apps/det…
The #Aadhaar #android app is saving your biometric settings in a local database which is protected with a password. To generate the password they used a random number with 123456789 as seed and a hardcoded string db_password_123 🤦‍♂️
It can be good also to remove the "developer" endpoint from the release apk...

Hi @edawerd,

Few years ago you published 2 #android apps on the #playstore:
- No Root Screenshot It
- Screenshot It

FYI, the native library you coded had been used by #NorthKorea in an app called RedFlag aka Digital Signature Manipulation System

#KCC

The modified version of your library can be found here: github.com/fs0c131y/RedFl…

By checking the two versions, we can see they only modified few bytes of your lib. In fact, they only changed the "SCREEN_SHOT_IT_PACKAGE".
By the way, the software at lindylabs.com/screenshot_it to "enable" the app is no more available. So, please update your app or remove it from the store.

I'm staying at your disposal if you have any questions
