Sky reassures Android app users after its Twitter and Google accounts were hacked

Television broadcaster Sky (BSkyB) has said its Android applications are safe to use. The company’s Twitter account and its Google Play account were both apparently taken over by the Syrian Electronic Army, which warned customers to uninstall the apps.

A message on the official @SkyHelpTeam Twitter account yesterday said “We are aware that the Android apps of Sky+,Sky News were hacked and replaced... please remove the apps if you are already installed it”.

Sky says it’s temporarily removed its apps from the Google Play application store but insists that no Sky Apps were affected and any Sky Android apps previously downloaded by customers are still safe to use.
