Re: Android Malware Warning

Thanks, @Bambino!

I have also wondered why WhatsApp offers me a setting to enable draw video over other apps at times - unrelated, but worrying nevertheless.
I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe.

Re: Android Malware Warning

Thanks for the information @Bambino. Fortunately my phone has the latest security patch and I've been using WhatsApp with no problems thus far. But it's good to know what's out there and be very careful, at the same time.

Lover of all things Samsung. Currently using Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus 128gb

Re: Android Malware Warning

That's a bit of a shock, so thanks for the heads up @Bambino 

Fortunately I haven't used Whatsapp for a long while now, so hopefully I will be ok.

Yet another good reason why mobile operators shouldn't sit on firmware updates for months to 'optimise the customer experience'

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 2 76 Mbps Down/18 Mbps up (upgraded for homeworking),
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)
