Thursday Trouble

1a

When researchers revealed that a Chinese advertising company had created one of the most pernicious pieces of Android malware yet, they estimated it has infected 10m Android handsets worldwide.

Dubbed “HummingBad” by researchers at the security firm Checkpoint, it’s a one of the biggest attacks to date on Android – the world’s most popular mobile operating system, which runs on more than 80% of all smartphones as well as tablets.

While this attack isn’t catastrophic, it opens the door for future attacks that could be, say security experts. Researchers haven’t been able to say which Android handsets are most susceptible, but say that as many as 85m of the world’s Android devices are vulnerable.

    Stick walked to Waddell & Reed in 22 minutes. Then just strolled down to the Foundry. Caesar Salad with salmon and a pinot noir.

      Strolled to the end of the downtown river park, then more stick walking up to Sloan for a daily total of 34 minutes. Tired, extra.

      Day 5: 221+34=255 minutes.
