This  app has apparently  been able to able to attack users, track their location, steal text messages, and even record private conversations through a bug called AhMyth RAT.

Initially there no concern over the app but it is believed an update contained  malicious code.  Anyone who has the app should delete it, it has now been removed from the Google Store.

No problem, certainly thought  I should highlight  this.  Never used the app in question myself mind you.
