If you have any of Sky's Android apps installed on your smartphone or tablet you should uninstall them as they have been hacked.

Syrian Electronic Army, a hacking group responsible for several visible attacks in the last few weeks, has evidently taken control of BSkyB's Sky apps in the Play Store, replacing the promo headers with SEA's logo, and the app descriptions with "Syrian Electronic Army Was Here."
In a tweet earlier, BSkyB warned its users to uninstall all Sky apps, as they "were hacked and replaced
." Indeed, BSkyB's apk files were replaced by the hacking group.
