The latest in #AmazonHatesAuthors news...

TLDR: If you know a self-published author, DO NOT review their books. You may think you're helping them, but you're actually putting their livelihood in jeopardy. If you are a self-published author, be aware that basically anything you do, including simply promoting your book, can get flagged by Amazon's algorithms and get your account banned.

Yeah. Good luck with that.

Original Post from Kevin C. (KevinC):

Security researcher @kylelady, working for an endpoint visibility software company, announces that most Android phones, with the exception of Nexus and now Samsung, are missing security patches that could prevent a malicious app from bypassing all security on your device. Readers remain confused as to whether this is a real issue or just a security company hyping their product. The lack of any stats for other phones or manufacturers is disappointing as well - does this apply to less popular manufacturers like Oppo? Or are just several major manufacturers so far behind on security patches?
