Android is the most popular smart phone operating system in the world, but a new flaw shows that they are extremely vulnerable to hackers.

The exposed flaw shows that any Android phone can be taken over by hackers, and all they have to do is send a single text.

The scary part is that the user doesn't even have to open a text attachment or anything.  The code in the text sent by a hacker takes over the phone before the user even gets notification that they've received a text!

Once the hacker has control of the phone they can literally control any function on the device.

The good news is that there is a patch available to secure your Android device, but getting it without having to buy a new phone might be the challenge.

So far there hasn't been any major scandal caused by the security flaw, and hopefully as more users find out about it, they will take steps to make their phones more secure.
