Finally Xiaomi solves one of the most important bugs of MIUI 12 related to security

We must be honest, when it comes to the update theme, Xiaomi is not at the top of the charts as a release timing, on the contrary it often takes some time before updates arrive that go to fix more or less uncomfortable bugs. This is the case of the latest release by the Chinese brand which finally, after considerable reminders from the community, goes to fix one of the bugs that put privacy and security on MIUI 12 at risk.

Let's talk about the fact that despite our smartphone is locked with password, fingerprint and face, from the lock screen it is possible to pull down the notification curtain or rather the Control Center and activate / deactivate quick toggles, such as those relating to connections, therefore the attacker on duty could activate the airplane mode, so as not to track and / or ring the phone, and then proceed calmly to reset the device.

This would therefore also prevent us from locating our device through the function that Xiaomi Cloud makes available, basically making it impossible to carry out all those remote operations that would at least allow us to save our data.

Specifically, the update that Xiaomi has released and which implements the impossibility of controlling the Control Center with the phone locked, is the version 12.0.10.0 RKACNXM relating to the smartphone Mi 11 Ultra, the only one at the moment to benefit from this piece.

It is clear that Lei Jun's company plans to reach all the other smartphones in the catalog with the update, including Redmi and POCO but at the moment it is not known with what release date the various updates will take place, especially in the Global versions of our interest. However, the thing that really makes us turn up our noses and that in a certain sense also makes us angry is that the update has a weight of only 21 MB, testifying that the solution to the problem was not that difficult.

Yet net of this we still have to wait and who knows for how long, but at least something is moving.

Nerd, Geek, Netizen, terms that do not belong to me. Simply myself, technology lover and provocative as Xiaomi does with his products. High quality at fair prices, a real provocation for the other most famous brands.
