By eavesdropping on data sent to the Google Calender, Contacts and Picasa apps, hackers could steal login credentials and gain full access to accounts. The vulnerable data are known as Authentication Tokens. They allow users to log in to online services via apps for up to two weeks at a time. Normally Authentication Tokens are sent to smartphones as encrypted files, but the researchers found that handsets running Android up to version 2.3.3 receive them as plain text files that can be read by anybody
