We still haven’t fully recovered from the fright that Stagefright has given us, when news of another vulnerability called Certifi-gate was revealed by CheckPoint three weeks ago. Now, apparently an app (which of course has since then been shut down) was able to bypass Google’s security measures and got published on the Google Play Store, containing this infection.

Probably one of the greatest fears of most people is to be trapped in a creepy chamber in a haunted manor, and the only way to get out is to solve some brain-scratching puzzles (okay, especially that last part).
