More than 10 million Android phones have been infected with an annoying little piece of malware called HummingBad. This malware looks to exploit a device’s data by stealing and selling it.

The cloud has been a miracle to many businesses as they merge or migrate their data to the off-site storage service. See, the beauty of the cloud is all about its accessibility.

Most of us know the value of keeping our software updated. This includes having the latest virus definitions installed and our operating systems and programs patched against the latest bugs. It’s really just standard practice to update these things.
