It’s barely been a month since Fortnite Battle Royale was released for Android, but it turns out that it’s already creating a security risk for users. To recall, Fortnite for Android was not released on the Google Play Store because the company wanted to avoid paying a commission to Google. Now, Google themselves have revealed that they discovered a very serious flax in the Fortnite Installer. The flaw would allow the installer to install any other app to a user’s phone without their knowledge. According to a report by Android Central, Google’s team of researchers first disclosed the vulnerability to Fortnite’s developer, Epic Games, in private on August 15. After receiving confirmation from Epic that the vulnerability was fixed, it released the information publically.
