We have just received a warning from Google Play store asking us to upgrade to Cordova 4.1.1 - Our app was built last November using xdk, which version of Cordova is currently used by xdk builds on CLI 5.1.1? Thanks
We are deprecating the Intel XDK Cordova CLI 4.1.2 build system. This means that the CLI 4.1.2 build option will be retired at a future date (currently planned for March, 2016). We recommend that you start moving your projects to use the Intel XDK Cordova CLI 5.1.1 build option in preparation for the eventual discontinuation of the CLI 4.1.2 build option. Once CLI 4.1.2 is retired, you will no longer be able to use the Intel XDK to build apps with Cordova CLI 4.1.2.
We are aware that some apps currently require the CLI 4.1.2 option to successfully build. In some cases those are related to using Xcode 6 on our iOS build system, which will be resolved by the time the CLI 4.1.2 build option is retired, at which time we will have an iOS build option that employs Xcode 7. In other cases they are related to specific plugin issues.
If you have some specific issues that prevent you from using CLI 5.1.1, please provide details regarding the reason you must use CLI 4.1.2 as a post to this thread so we can be sure to address those issues before the CLI 4.1.2 build system is retired.

So were you trying to upload the app in playstore at that time you got the warning? or just received a warning through email or something?
I have received the warning today as well.
"(Your app is using a version of Apache Cordova containing one or more security vulnerabilities)"
"Please migrate your app(s) to Apache Cordova v.4.1.1 or higher as soon as possible and increment the version number of the upgraded APK. If you are using a 3rd party library that includes Apache Cordova, please notify the 3rd party and work with them to address the issue."
I had uploaded one of my apps 5 days ago. And today appear in the developer console of google play the yellow sign warning in all my 5 apps.
I have built all my 5 apps using CORDOVA CLI VERSION 5.1.1.
I make my games with Construct2 and use XDK to get the apk. So, i don´t know too much about coding and commands.
Could someone explain how to solve this in easy steps?
I have try writing the command: "npm install -g cordova" trying to update. Have this any sense?
I also got the message today (2/8/2016) on my app built in 11/2015. The app was built with the Cordova 5 CLI, so the warning message doesn't make sense (to me anyway). Seems like either 1) the google warning is incorrect or 2) even though it looks like the XDK used 5 CLI, it really (somehow) used CLI 4.
I received the same email warning for an app created with Intel XDK & Cordova 5.1.1, submitted to Google Play last December.
Google Play will not allow new submissions of apps created with Cordova versions older than 4.1.1 after May 9, 2016. This will be a problem if they are incorrectly flagging our Intel XDK apps created with Cordova 5.1.1.
Thanks for any help.
To everyone on this thread, please read this FAQ and forum post, hopefully this will clear things up for you:
