Niente più app che modificano lo stato del SELinux sul play Store

Giuseppe Tripodi

Gli smanettoni estremi probabilmente non saranno troppo felici di scoprire che tutte le app che modificano lo stato del SELinux non saranno più approvate per il Play Store.

Inoltre, i software già pubblicati che violano questa norma, hanno 14 giorni di tempo per venire adeguati e, in alternativa, verranno rimossi. Di seguito il messaggio che Google ha recapitato agli sviluppatori interessati.

This is a notification that your application, SELinux Mode Changer, with package ID com.mrbimc.selinux, is currently in violation of our developer terms.


REASON FOR WARNING: Violation of the dangerous products provision of the Content Policy:

“Don’t transmit or link to… items that may introduce security vulnerabilities to or harm user devices, apps, or personal data.”
After a regular review, we have determined that your app lowers a user’s device security by modifying or disabling SELinux on the device. To ensure a safe user experience for Play users, we have determined that apps with this functionality are noncompliant.

Please remove this functionality from your app within 14 days to achieve policy compliance. Once approved, your application will again be available with all installs, ratings and reviews intact.

This notification also serves as notice for other apps in your catalog. You can avoid further administrative action by immediately ensuring that no other apps in your catalog are in violation of (but not limited to) the above policy. Please also ensure your apps’ compliance with the Developer Distribution Agreement and Content Policy.

All violations are tracked. Additional suspensions of any nature may result in the termination of your developer account, and investigation and possible termination of related Google accounts. If your account is terminated, payments will cease and Google may recover the proceeds of any past sales and/or the cost of any associated fees (such as chargebacks and transaction fees) from you.

If you feel we have made this determination in error -or feel that this functionality has been misinterpreted, please submit an appeal to the Google Play policy team through this Google Play Help Center article.
