Matrix Android SDK security issue affecting Riot/Android

Our development team identified a security issue affecting all previous versions of the Matrix Android SDK and, by extension, any Android clients which use the Matrix Android SDK. This includes Riot Android (Google Play and F-Droid) and mini Vector. The issue has been fixed in version 0.9.27 of the Matrix Android SDK and Riot Android 0.9.4. RiotX is not affected, nor are any Matrix clients on any other platform.

Riot.im Android security update

After the security incident at Matrix.org, we have decided to publish a new Riot.im Android app on the Google Play Store out of an abundance of caution. The fresh app is still called Riot.im but internally it has a different application identifier (im.vector.app). Because of this new id, the new app appears in Google Play as a completely different application. This also prevents an automatic update from the old to the new application.
