      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Download the apk
      2. Decompile the app
      3. Go to res-values-strings.xml

      Information disclosed (obfuscated):

      <string name="google_api_key">AIzxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxyk</string>
          
      <string name="google_app_id">1:69xxxxxxxxxx:android:xxxxxxxxxxxxxx1a</string>
          
      <string name="google_crash_reporting_api_key">AIzxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxyk</string>

      Impact: Google API key can be used by the attacker

       Note: The app version was not clear from the report, so I have assumed it was a fresh download and marked this as affecting the latest version.
