It'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.

Well my goodness, that didn't take long. I was thinking it'd be tomorrow that the next account would be compromised, however it's recently happened again... this time BET (Black Entertainment Television) has been compromised and had their profile picture changed to the MTV logo.

Not too sure if tomorrow will also bring yet another company's Twitter to the hands of hackers.
Stay safe. :)
