More Than 1 Million Google Accounts Breached by Gooligan
As a result of a lot of hard work done by our security research teams, we revealed today a new and alarming malware campaign. The attack campaign, named Gooligan, breached the security of over one million Google accounts. The number continues to rise at an additional 13,000 breached devices each day.
Our research exposes how the malware roots infected devices and steals authentication tokens that can be used to access data from Google Play, Gmail, Google Photos, Google Docs, G Suite, Google Drive, and more.
Gooligan potentially affects devices on Android 4 (Jelly Bean, KitKat) and 5 (Lollipop), which is over 74% of in-market devices today.
You can check if your account is compromised by accessing the following web site that we created: gooligan.checkpoint.com...

i am deeply suspicious of any of these " check to see if ........................... " sites // services
i will pass on checking my phone
for several reasons
1 - i have security apps running and uptodate definitions from trusted sources
2 - i dont recognise any of the hacked apps listed - and diont download shiite
3 - the addy i use on my phone is my main gmail account - and i avoid giving it to any untrustworthy source and " check to see if ..... " rates in my mind as pure scam bait

We are so close to the sigularity it's not funny, Google already uses AI for it's search results and machine learning for it's algorithms like penguin and panda.
