Android Bitcoin Wallet Theft Vulnerability Discovered
Bitcoin notes that apps where users don’t control private keys, such as exchange frontends Coinbase or Mt Gox, aren’t affected, but many apps are. Bitcoin posted an “incomplete list” that includes Bitcoin Wallet, BitcoinSpinner, Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet, and blockchain.info.
The apps are being updated, so users can head over to the Google Play store (or Google Code or mycelium.com as the case may be) and get the latest versions. Further, Bitcoin suggests rotating keys by generating a new address and sending your wallet money back to yourself.
