    According to the article, here, Google has passed the patch to partners for their use. A Bitcoin developer group was the one who brought the issue to light by issuing a warning, but according to Symantec more than 360,000 Android applications use the faulty component and could be vulnerable. How the other applications can be exploited is not clear to me.

    A number of Bitcoin users have reported theft of their Bitcoins.
