I just received this email from my wife (which her account seems hacked she's a iPhone user)

Linking me to a website that wants to download an app.

Name of apk
security.Update.Patch.apk

According to this http://www.techhive.com/article/2549...d_to_know.html

So be on the look out in your mail and not download anything or click on any links. Even from trusted emails.

Mods if this is in the wrong section key me know. Thank you

No ploy. Just putting the info out. As you can see by my info. Been on XDA for a couple years with plenty of devices. Just trying to put the that out. That website leads to info about the Trojan. Which I almost downloaded last night.
