For those of you avid cerberus fans, turns out its a great backdoor for anyone playing the IMEI lottery, they can win access to your device! Woo!



Reportedly will be fixed in version 2.4, so make sure you upgrade the moment that releases.

actually following links it would seem that the hole can't be used regardless of what the update does so was fixed before this thread was made.

"anyway, server-side the bug was fixed yesterday. This means that the exploit won't work, and you can safely keep Cerberus (whatever version you have) installed on your device. I know the guy who found the exploit says otherwise, but that's not true. Here is the IMEI number of my Nexus 4: 356489051656994, in case he wants to send a wipe command to the phone and prove me wrong.

An update of the app will be published tomorrow or on Monday, and after that we will release a longer statement. Thanks for your patience."
