Hackers are at it again and, like a wolf, they go after the weakest in the herd. Weakest, meaning those that don't have protection on their smart phones.

Consumer Reports have, once again, brought to light a potential chink in the fence of automated security.

It has been reported that hackers are using malware, also known as malicious software, to by pass any security measures that may already be a part of the app.

There are suggested ways to protect yourself against these hackers. Things like: knowing what your banking app looks like, log in and check your banking accounts everyday, and never click on an unfamiliar email or text.

When in doubt, call your bank and download antivirus and malware protection software for extra protection.
