Yet another telephone eats your coins

Anyone running an older version of the Android operating system, be warned: Malware is infecting 13,000 Android devices every day, putting at risk the private details of more than 1 million Google accounts.
That's according to cybersecurity software company Check Point, which discovered a new piece of malware called "Gooligan" that's infecting Android phones and stealing email addresses.
Users who download Gooligan-infected apps or click links in phishing messages are being exposed to the malware, which allows attackers to access sensitive information from Google apps like Gmail, Drive, and Photos.
Once attackers hack into the device, they're buying apps on the Google Play store and writing reviews posing as the phone's owner, Check Point says. 

OK, do we see why we need the Rednecks in  charge?  
The same bozos that want to store your dough-re-me in  telephones are the ones begging Treasury for monopoly control in the Swamp. Rednecks spot this stuff, our necks glow red in anger.
