Not only is the app rather cluttered and buggy, security researcher Elliot Alderson (@fs0c131y on Twitter) points out this app makes your files vulnerable to theft. All you have to do is open it once.

Internet tricksters hijack Chromecasts to promote PewDiePie

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

The internet-connected devices in our homes can make life more enjoyable, but they can also provide an in for internet ne'er-do-wells. A pair of jokers has undertaken a campaign of Chromecast hacking ostensibly to warn people about their vulnerability. Although, they're also promoting PewDiePie for some reason.

Another T-Mobile website bug allowed anyone to access customer info using just a phone number

Saturday, May 26th, 2018

T-Mobile customers: Your data has been put at risk by your carrier, once again. In what seems like copypasta at this point, a security researcher recently found a bug in a publicly discoverable subdomain on T-Mobile's website that gave anyone access to customer data using just a phone number. It's almost like T-Mobile wants to award those bug bounties.

A young hacker-turned-security researcher in England found a critical vulnerability on T-Mobile's website that basically left records of user logins exposed online for hackers to pillage. The bug was reported and patched in December, and T-Mobile says no customer information was compromised as a result of this flaw.

Kane Gamble, who pled guilty to trying to hack into the email accounts of senior U.S.

T-Mobile bug gave hackers access to customer data using only a phone number

A security researcher has revealed that a recently patched hole in T-Mobile's security made it possible for hackers to vacuum up all your personal account information, and all they needed was your phone number. And you probably give that out all the time. T-Mobile says the vulnerability has been corrected,  but there's some question how severe the data breach might have been.

According to Motherboard, the flaw was reported to T-Mobile by security researcher Karan Saini.
