  1. This is really bad news. Attacking smart phones is a great idea for hackers being that most people don’t even realize their phone can be hijacked. People really need to be cautious when downloading apps.

  2. As smart phones become an everyday part of life, sooner or later this was going to happen. The amount of information we store on our phone is scary, because it’s easy to look at as a reference.
    And if you think about it, someone could be hacking into your phone whenever you make a call or send a text. This is going to be a big issue in the upcoming years and if we done find a way to make phones more secure, we might have a big security problem on our hands.
