Viber App Poses Security Risk

I found out earlier today that the popular Viber application poses a possible security flaw to your android device. This flaw potentially allows attackers to get past the screen lock you have set up and control your entire device, without you knowing. Many of the attackers have been accessing the device and then sending text messages to premium rate numbers, costing you a lot of money!

I used to have this application and luckily I uninstalled it a few months back (it really drained the battery). If you have this application I would recommend uninstalling it temporarily until the fix has been issued by the Viber team, as of now the risk is still there.
