New Exploits Android & Possibly Others

IBN Live Tech has the story of a new exploit that could give hackers control of Android phones. The exploit has to do with a software called webkit installed on the phones.  Webkit is also used on iOS devices and the Google Chrome browser, and though they haven’t testing against these the potential of vulnerability is a very real possibility.  The best way to protect yourself is know how your vendor sends information and notices. A best practices is never click on a link when you receive a message but to open the website directly and check.  This goes for not only this exploit but any message you receive not just on your phone but in e-mail, too.
