    News is quickly spreading across the Internet of another potential security threat to Android devices.

    The BBC covered it by saying:

    The Huffington Post, went on to report that...

    Meanwhile, Ars Technica have also covered the story...

    So, while this would appear to have the potential to be a problem, there is a lot of difference between "potential" and "actual".

    What is your take on this latest security story?

    My mother in law runs some credit union's and their security personnel instructed everyone to delete the flashlight app.
    She is tech savvy when it comes to typewriters, so I just laughed at the info.
    I honestly haven't read up on any threats, but this stuff sounds real.
    Wtf?

    I wouldn't worry to much about this.. This is kind of a perfect storm scenario. All the planets would have to be perfectly aligned for something like that to take place. Plus in order for any real damage to be done before it was caught it would have to hit on one of the big apps... Someone in the community would catch it before it spread to far. Another case of a news organization reporting on something to raise controversy and get "hits" to their site. Could it happen......? Yes but again to many things would have to be missed before it became a real threat.
