I just read some interesting news. It appears that smartphones with the android operating system have been targeted a lot in the first half of 2011. The article I read titled “Study tracks first signs of botnet infections” says that about 40,000 infected phones. The good news is the infections were quickly repaired. The news about attacks on android phones doesn’t sit well with me because I own an android phone as well as most of my family. We have safeguards in place such as lookout mobile security to scan all the apps we download for safety and a little bit of virus security but I don’t know if that is enough. I heard that turning off my phones wi-fi adds a level of protection so no one tries to hack my phone so I have the feature disabled. Will that be enough to help protect me from hackers? We’ll see. http://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/news/2240081235/Study-tracks-first-signs-of-Android-botnet-infections
