Subject: Re: "Data-Clone" -- a new way to attack android
	apps

“I'm pretty sure that this is wrong. Apps on the SD card are encrypted. The
crypto is flawed, but not so flawed that this kind of attack would
be possible. Also, apps on the device even need an exploit just to be

data  on /data/data/xxx , like "Already have super privileges"
