Google Play Store Update Allows Apps to Silently Gain Control of Your Device

Google just made a huge change to the way application permissions work on Android devices which has left a potential door open to malicious app developers and hackers.
Google narrows down Android's 145 permissions into 13 broad categories and groups app permissions into 'groups of related permissions', likely for Android users to have an easier time dealing with app permissions.
Unfortunately, the new update has introduced a few potential security and privacy issues, as listed below:

*hiding permissions behind the group names
*auto-updating app with no warning for new permissions
