Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from usaa (12/22/2010)

Contrary to the Wall Street Journal article referenced in this summary, the USAA Android application never allowed attackers to obtain user names or passwords. Limited transactional data was available only if one had physical possession of the device and had access (and used) extremely sophisticated forensics applications. Although this was a low risk vulnerability, USAA resolved the problem within 24 hours of notification. The resolution of the problem was validated by ViaForensics
