Google fixed Android issues

For the ones that were affraid about the security vulnerabilities that Android has on Calendar and Contact Information, I have, actually Google has good news for them. This problem has been fixed in the version of Android 2.3.4 known as GingerBread.

Here is what Google says:

"Today [May 18th] we’re starting to roll out a fix which addresses a potential security flaw that could, under certain circumstances, allow a third party access to data available in calendar and contacts. This fix requires no action from users and will roll out globally over the next few days."
