More Android Security Woes
I have posted a few times about the dangerous security issues associated with the Android operating system for mobile phones. For a few examples, look here and here. More bad news today for Google’s mobile OS.
TechHive has reported that hackers are exploiting Android security holes to steal money from victims. One insidious method is by sending premium-priced text messages in the background – so the victim does not know about the activity until it shows up in the next monthly phone bill.
As I have said before – it is a dangerous world out there. Be careful. More and more I wonder why anyone is using such a flawed OS where great phones that do not suffer from those flaws are available.
