Android and Heartbleed – What you Need to Know

This morning an article popped up on my radar about Android and Heartbleed. There is a danger for a particular version of Android devices and will want to check to see if you have this version of operating system.  The version is 4.1.1. To find out you go to settings on you tablet/smartphone and the click on the About. It will either be there or under Software Version, it is dependent upon the device.  Google says less than 10% of those 4.1.1 are vulnerable and they already the sites/services that were vulnerable.If you have this version do a software update check and see if one is available. If not keep checking weekly as they are working on it. You can read more on this issue here.
