We all know nothing is bulletproof. Somewhere, someone will always want to break in and steal your stuff. Especially now, we carry around basically a digital ID card, our (smart)phones. We store anything and everything on it. We can think we’re safe, but, sadly, we’re just really fooling ourselves.
This dude found this bug found in pretty much all version of Android, and it can be triggered via SMS. Nexus users will most probably get the patch the soonest. Lollipop users are also the safest, but not 100% safe.
A patch will be great if it can be sent out swiftly, but with different brands, skins, carriers, it’s tough. This is where, and I hate to admit it, Apple has a leg up on Google. Anyway, don’t read any unknown text messages with video attachments. Even if it’s from someone you know.

Thank you to Alvin for bringing this up.
Well we got hit by hurricane Sandy pretty bad. No real damage was done but there were still a lot in my area (NJ) and other places. I am over thankful we only have downed trees in our backyard and loss of power. It could have been worse, a lot worse. So far all the people I know did not get hit bad. Minor damages that can be fixed, and that’s the key word, fixed.
Posts from myself will be limited as we still don’t have power, and thus no internet and a PC. I really can’t post from my phone much as I need to conserve battery, and we also got full cell phone connectivity back in our area.
I hope everyone of our readers / followers faired just as good if not better than myself and cheesecake.
I count our blessings for getting out of this tragic force of mother nature unscathed.
our only real damage
The east coast of the US is about to get hit by a massive storm. Please everyone, be smart and safe, during this hurricane. Lots of lives down in the Caribbean has already been lost, and we don’t need to see any unnecessary lives lost once this thing hits. Stay indoors, and don’t go out unless needed, like if you need to get away from floods or what not.
I myself am already stuck in NJ for the next few days with NYC closing up, and my train service, the New Jersey Transit shutting down. Again, stay safe everyone!
