All that own a android need to read
Can't believe this didn't make front page news here. Guess we didn't want to piss off the android folks.
All should be aware of this. Every smartphone has the potential to to be hacked but with the way google goes about handles and monitors it's market(basically they do nothing) it seems that they are the most vulnerable.
Just thought all should be aware. Hope no one here was/is affected.
Good find BHP. I'll stick to my proprietary i4.
Galaxy S4 Red
i4's are vulnerable too, if they're jailbroken. Make sure to change the root password away from "alpine" if you decide to jailbreak. I have an android and basically don't download junk from the market. I've always been leary of all of the free games. I haven't been to worried about some of the free productivity apps and such. But if there are hundreds of apps by one "dev' that just seems suspicious to me.
do we have a list of the apps?
Phone: T-Mo S4- Stock-Rooted
Device: T-Mobile S3
Device: HTC Amaze 4G
Device: HTC Vision (T-Mobile G2)
Device: BlackBerry (9700, 8900,8320,8120,8100)
Thanks for the heads up BHP! I advise all Android users to be catious of what apps you download. These things can be avoided buy reading the permissions any app is asking for. Also read the reviews.
