Sky Sports and other apps hacked by Syrian Electronic Army

Today we have a warning for users of the popular range of Sky applications on the Android platform, as offerings such as Sky Sports and other apps have been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army with the company issuing a warning to its users.

During the early hours of this morning the Sky Help Team tweeted a warning to its customers stating its applications had been compromised. So if you use Sky Go, Sky Sports News, Sky Movies, Sky+, Sky Wi-Fi, and Sky News you are advised to uninstall these apps immediately from your mobile device.

The organisation has been targeting a number of big companies recently with ITV News also hit among others, but Sky app users will have to wait before they can use the apps again as currently none of the Sky apps are available on the Google Play Store.

Sky’s help team have promised to notify users once the apps are made available again which hopefully won’t be too long.
