Hackers Grab 1Million Logins From Android Forum

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Phandroid has announced that a hacker has recently accessed its user database, making off with usernames, email addresses and hashed passwords—and the problem looks like it could affect all of its one million-plus users.

In a forum post announcing the problem, administrators explained that the hack was most likely an email harvesting scheme. While Phandroid users should watch their inboxes for spam, the forum also suggests that users should immediately change their passwords. [Phandroid via ZDNET]
