It is believed that this is the largest Google account breach to date, and Google is working to continue the investigation how much was the malware affected
. We encourage Android users to validate whether their accounts have been breached.
If your account has been breached, you can do the following steps::
- A clean installation of an operating system on your mobile device is required (a process called “flashing”). As this is a complex process, we recommend powering off your device and approaching a certified technician, or your mobile service provider, to request that your device be “re-flashed.”
- Change your Google account passwords immediately after this process.
