    Saw this article and was wondering about BlackBerry's flavor of android and whether it was as, more or less likely to be susceptible to the hacking described in the article.

    That article is hyperbolic and doesn't even apply unless you're still running Lollipop, which none of BlackBerry's devices are anymore.

    The malware, dubbed "Gooligan" by Check Point, uses known vulnerabilities to get obtain root access — complete control — over devices running Android 4.x and 5.x, before using this to steal Google account names and authentication tokens.
