Everybody is hacking everybody.  Last week we heard about the adult site that got hacked to make all the folks fooling around to stop.  This week, we hear of a hack that could affect up to 95% of Android phones.  And you don’t have to go to an unsavory site to get hacked.  This is similar to a hack mentioned earlier this year  that affected iOS stuff.

Check out the link below, and just be aware.
