Android Phone Data Breach
And here I thought Google was impenetrable… 1 million devices have already been hacked through apps downloaded from Google Play and external sources (via side-loading); and the number of compromised devices climbs approximately 13,000 by the day.

Now is the time to take your mobile security seriously… 

Think about how much private information is connected to your mobile device: social media logins, saved passwords, credit card information, additional financial information, browsing preferences and more. Now imagine how you would react if someone stole all of those things; what would you do?

I know I would panic.

Here’s what you can do to protect yourself:

1. Go to https://gooligan.checkpoint.com/, type in your e-mail address, and see if you’ve been breached.
2. Download ‘Malwarebytes’  for your phone and run a scan
3. Download ‘Kaspersky Anti Virus‘ and run a scan
4. Check for system updates, and make sure to keep your apps up to date.
5. Use LastPass to protect your passwords.
6. Use a password generator to create secure/unbiased passwords.

Below is the list of applications in the Google Play store that have been infected with the Gooligan malware:
