In a research by Avast’s Cyber ​​Threat Lab, which included about 180,000 publicly available applications via “Firebase”, the researchers found that more than 10% of these applications, equivalent to 19,300 applications, were open, allowing data to be displayed to developers.

It is likely that personal information of more than 10% of users of the applications that have been compromised. Developed via “Firebase” is at risk.
