    Glad I use a BlackBerry phone. Seems there has been a lot of security issues being discovered with other platforms lately. Here is a link explaining:

    I read about this earlier. Looks very bad but not surprised in the least bit.

    To be fair, from what I have read about it, it is only old devices that no longer get updates. That could still be a lot of devices though. Also stick with the official app store and you are less likely to have problems. Good informative post though. Popular OS's are always in the way of hackers. I used Apple computers before they were popular and never had to worry about viruses because no one cared about Apple computers. LOL.

    Ah crap. I didn't see that other thread.
    I think this thread should stay in this section for better coverage.

    This is all nonsense, Android is safe, there is no need to worry. Google is secure and Android by extension including GP is the one of the most secure out there eh? It would be user error if you have issues
