Sky Android Apps HackedIt's only recently been reported by Sky, that a numerous amount of their Android apps have been hacked and replaced on the Google Play Store. As you can see from the screenshot to the side, it's a group calling themselves the Syrian Electronic Army. At the time of writing this up the affected apps are Sky Go, Sky+, Sky WiFi and the Sky News app.

Sky's official support account (@SkyHelpTeam) has advised people who have these applications installed on their Android devices to uninstall them and they will be notified (via Twitter) when it's safe to redownload them again.
