Security researchers from Google have publicly disclosed an extremely serious security flaw in the first Fortnite installer for Android that could allow other apps installed on the targeted devices to manipulate installation process and load malware, instead of the Fortnite APK.
Earlier this month, Epic Games announced not to make its insanely popular game ‘Fortnite for Android‘ available through the Google Play Store, but via its own app.
Many researchers warned the company that this approach could potentially put Android users at a greater risk, as downloading APKs outside of the Play Store is not recommended and requires users to disable some security features on Android devices as well.
And it seems like those fears and concerns were true.
Google developers discovered a dangerous security flaw as soon as the Fortnite game launched on Android.
