‘Godless’ Malware – 90% of Android Devices Vulnerable to Root Exploits!

If you’re running Android 5.1 or earlier, you want to read this:
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop and earlier is vulnerable
  • these malware infected apps were able to bypass security checks/reviews for the app when added into the online app stores within Google Play and others
  • distributed on a variety of app stores, not just Google Play – one of the apps was called “Summer Flashlight” (and has since been removed from the Play Store)
  •  this malware is already installed and running on over 850,000 devices worldwide, with about 17,000 in the United States
  • Security Risks include: unwanted access – data leaks, identity theft, hardware failure, etc

Our Tech Tip: Make sure to have a good anti-virus software installed on your device, as well as having all important things backed up. While this won’t mitigate all issues, it will help to slow them down. We personally recommend avast! for Android.
