It’s about time Google rags this nasty remoteness flaw. Any app can guard your network activity but your believe to see when we bond with a competing app, or maybe worse.

There’s now no limitation on apps accessing /proc/net, that means they can review from here (especially a TCP and UDP files) to parse your device’s network activity.
