ALERT: More Than 1 Million Android Phones Hacked Through Fake Apps
The Google accounts of more than 1.3 million Android devices have been hacked through fake apps in what is being reported as the largest Google account breach to date.
Google has confirmed the hack to CNNMoney, saying the hackers have stolen digital tokens linking to a user's Google account but have not yet stolen any information.
Check Point, a cyber security research firm, has termed the malware campaign "Gooligan" and says it continues to affect an additional 13,000 accounts each day.
Check Point has created a website, gooligan.checkpoint.com, where users can determine whether their accounts have been hacked by entering their email address. More than 57 percent of cases are located in Asia, the firm said.
The firm also has provided a list of 86 potentially infected apps that could be responsible for the hack.
Google has advised users to only download apps from its Google Play store.
