Synopsis: The Cloud Make service for AppStudio has been updated to include a new libpng library that fixes a security vulnerability on the Android platform.  To update your AppStudio Android apps with this fix simply run a another build process for Android from the online "Build App" web page or using the "Make" tool in AppStudio Desktop Edition

 

  

 

Background: Earlier in the year a security vulnerability was discovered in the popular Open Source libpng libraries, and the Google Play store flagged any apps with include the un-patched libpng library with a "Security Alert" notice. The AppStudio Cloud Make servers have now been updated with a new Qt Runtime SDK that addresses the libpng security vulnerabilities. This update allows AppStudio Android apps that are published to the Google Play store to be updated and any new published apps to comply with Google Play’s Malicious Behavior policy. You can read more about this vulnerability in CVE-2015-8540.

Again, to update your AppStudio Android apps with this fix simply run a another build process using the Cloud Make service to generate a new Android APK file.
