'Unhackable' Android phone can be hacked

Black Hat told that applications can steal data and – worse – take over the Android phones completely

How typical, I've just bought one android. Sonyericson model.

Wonder how one protect oneself. Too much difficult text for me to read.

Write any messages by hand and deliver them yourself
until this is sorted out to your satisfaction.

Ask for ID from all recipients.

Hope that helps Smile

You mean me should ask for ID of the physical person that I hand deliver snail mails to?

Because if you mean I ask for ID of the googlemail I send over my android that is not so easy.

Laughing You found me out . . .

The black hat hackers as opposed to white and grey hats
are very security conscious and being able to
get into secure systems is part of their intent.

By this exposure the hole can be plugged.
Is it being used in the wild? Probably not.

I would still rather have an Android
than something filled with Apple Pulp
Fiction.

Please use your phone
I will send you some 'Elephant Power'
as I am doing a special prayer to a
red hatted deity called Ganesh.
He will protect your phone in an imaginary way
similar to your intended threat . . .

Live Long and Prosper
