With 100 million installations, SuperVPN is very famous but it also has critical vulnerabilities that makes it very threatening. VPNPro had reached out to Google as a part of its Google Play Security Reward Program on March 19 and that was when the organisation had approved the vulnerability.
The Google Play Store has excluded SuperVPN from the platform and if you have it on your Android Phone, you should remove it right now as well.
According to VPNPro, SuperVPN (a free VPN client) is an “amazingly dangerous” app and it has critical vulnerabilities that allow for man-in-the-middle attacks. What are man-in-the-middle attacks? These vulnerabilities allow hackers to easily intercept communications and redirect users to hackers’ servers instead of the servers they are meant to.
Both Google and VPNPro tried to reach the developers behind SuperVPN – SuperSoftTech – to patch the problem but failed to get to them. Google then deleted the SuperVPN app from the Play Store on April 7.
