Did my smartphone get hacked?
Posted on 2014-09-08
I have an ~ 2 year old Sony smart phone that, just this weekend, has started to turn on the camera and even take pictures. This seems to certainly be a security hack but I have no expertise in security.
How do I determine if this is something malicious and, if it is, how to remove this from the phone? While I am familiar with running PC security applications (Norton, Symantec, kaspersky) daily, I am unaware of such applications for any brand of smart phone and how to properly secure smart phones.
