Android devices at risk of hacking

Android devices at risk of hacking More than a billion Android devices could be at risk of being hacked.

According to watchdog Which?, users around the world could be exposed to data theft, ransom demands and malware attacks because their devices are no longer protected by security updates.

The organisation suggested anyone using an Android handset released in 2012 or earlier should be concerned.

While Google's own data says 42.1% of worldwide Android users are using version 6.0 or below of its operating system, the Android security bulletin says there were no patches issued in 2019 for versions below 7.0.
