Sky have had their mobile apps reportedly hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army, with Sky now advising all users to remove their apps from devices. Sky TV have said that their Android applications have been hacked, and have now been removed from the Google Play Store.
You can see from the above image that the description for the Sky Go app says "Syrian Electronic Army Was Here". Twitter has been a source of information as usual, with the Sky Help Team stating: "UPDATE: All Sky's Android apps were hacked and replaced... please uninstall it, And we will let you know when it will be available".
So if you're running a Sky TV app, you might want to remove it from your device completely and only reinstall once Sky have given the all-clear.
