Your android phone can be hacked by just a text message - Zimperium discovered the flawAndriod a Google smartphone mobile OS has faced so far the biggest smartphone flaw ever discovered. This discovered flaw is to affect estimated 950 million smartphones worldwide -- about 95% of the Androids in use today.

The problem stems from the way Android phones analyze incoming text messages. Even before you open a message, the phone automatically processes incoming media files -- including pictures, audio or video. That means a malware-laden file can start infecting the phone as soon as it's received, according Zimperium, a cybersecurity company that specializes in mobile devices.

If this sounds familiar, that's because this Android flaw is somewhat like the recent Apple text hack.

But in that case, a text message with just the right characters could freeze an iPhone or force it to restart. This Android flaw is worse, because a hacker could gain complete control of the phone: wiping the device, accessing apps or secretly turning on the camera.

Mobile usage is growing everyday with over 60% people go online full time using their mobile devices. Youtube decided to redesign their App to give you an even better mobile experience so as you can easily find videos you love and create them.
