Greetings,

Some of you may receive an Alert message from Google, related to Security issues in some used libraries for your Android Applications.

Google considers that several libraries used in various options of your application may be vulnerable. Seattlecloud team will fix this issue as soon as possible.

Update

All the related vulnerability fixes are already live.

In order to remove all warnings except the jquery.min.js and jquery.jplayer.min.js you just need to update the app.

For some application may be required a jquery update. It has to be done manually.

In order to update the jquery we recommend you to contact us first as we need to check if you need additional files like jquery.jplayer.min.js. or just the jquery.min.js file renewed. 

If you still decide to do it on your own consider to use these files:
jquery.min.js Version 3.4.1
jquery.jplayer.min.js Version 2.6.3

In browser if you can't download the file directly, use Save Link As and download it.

This files have to be added in place of your older files in Resource Manager of the app.

Note! You need to back up your application first using the Back Up option in your Application Dashboard. Old name of the file must be kept. For example if you have a file like jquery-1.5.1.min.js, you need to remove it then add the new jquery.min.js file and rename it to jquery-1.5.1.min.js. Same applies for jquery.jplayer.min.js. If you have only one of the files make sure to copy only the one that is required in case you had just one file. Do not copy at all if you don't have such files. After you have changed the mentioned files you need to check the application functionality.

After you done all these you need to update your live application. Warning'll disappear after the app'll be reviewed by Google Play System. Review is done in period of 24h.

If you'll still have a warning consider to contact us by Opening a Support Ticket.

Hey Vick,
I mostly use the Blank HTML template page to add content to my apps and it seems that the issue has still not been fixed... I still have the warnings inside google play console...
Hello,

The issue was already fixed, it seems that in your application you still have old jquery files which need to be updated manually.

In one of my applications you don't have those jquery files, do I have to add them?
No, if you do not have any of these and it does not have warnings.
