    BadNews Bug virus found in Google Play store

    I just read that 32 apps in the Play store were found to contain the BadNews Bug, a virus made in Russia. It apparently hijacks your phone and racks up charges for premium text messaging and stuff. I never thought that I had much to worry about when getting apps but I guess that we are.

    Wow! I wasn't even aware that there were actually viruses built for the Android at all but apparently I was wrong. Maybe I should think about getting some sort of security software for mine.

    There are probably way more infected apps. Hackers are trying to get in any way they can. You have to realize that your phone can get a virus, just like your computer.
