Got an Android phone? SMASH IT with a hammer – and do it NOW


Re: How much ?

Looking at the exploit market (there's a nice article on Bruce Schneier's blog today) it would be in the hundred of thousands of dollars at a guess. A exclusive 0-day for the desktop is about $100-$150k. A generic unpatchable flaw for a billion phones - well perhaps $1 million isn't too fanciful after all.
