How To Tell If Your Android Phone Has The Hummingbad Malware

HummingBad is bad news. Luckily you can find out if you're affected and do something about it. Bad news: a malicious app has taken hold of about 10 million Android phones around the world, and it's creepy.

Security specialist Check Point says the software, called HummingBad, can take root in your phone, collecting your personal data and making it act like you've clicked on ads that you haven't.
