Update: Pocket-Lint reports:
Sky has confirmed to Pocket-lint that its apps haven’t been hacked and replaced as suggested by the company’s Sky Help Team Twitter account on Sunday morning.
“Sky Android apps previously downloaded by Sky customers are unaffected and there is no need to remove them from Android devices,” the company told us in a statement on Sunday night.
Joe Svetlik reports:
Sky’s Android apps have been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army. In the early hours of this morning, the broadcaster advised Android users via the Sky Help Team Twitter feed to uninstall the offending apps and wait until it says it’s safe.
Those apps are Sky Go, Sky+, Sky WiFi, Sky News, Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports News. At time of writing, they’ve all been yanked from Google Play.
