Submission + - Bug in Android passes keystrokes to root shell (

pasokon writes: "An Android bug in shipping T-Mobile G1s:
'When the phone booted it started up a command shell as root and sent every keystroke you ever typed on the keyboard from then on to that shell. Thus every word you typed, in addition to going to the foreground application would be silently and invisibly interpreted as a command and executed with superuser privileges.'"
