It is a fact that the applications made available in China have undergone government control and even grant access. It is imperative that the servers that hold the data of the citizens be in the country and provide access at any time.
The latest news was about the Chinese Communist Party’s official propaganda practice. Study The Great Nation is a step-by-step application that keeps track of its users and also hosts a backdoor.
According to a report issued by the German Cure53 security company, the application can access more than 100 million Android devices with superuser privileges and thus can perform almost any operation without permission.
Researchers have found that the application allocates a special storage space and stores the files here and keeps them accessible to other applications. It is estimated that other government-related practices, in particular, can easily reach this area.
Worse, there is a command line similar to the backdoor between the codes. The application collects data such as location, voice recording, call recording and even calls to certain numbers by accessing the data of the phone without asking for any permission. So it means briefly the same as delivering the phone to the government.
The application is compulsory for the members of the party and the campaign is made intensively from social media. In this respect, it has more than 100 million downloads. It is not known whether there will be a reaction to the application after such news.
