In a blog post the developers of Bitcoin have announced the discovery of a critical weakness in Android that leaves Bitcoin wallets subject to theft. The vulnerability affects every Bitcoin wallet app for Android, including popular options like Bitcoin Wallet, wallet, BitcoinSpinner and Mycelium Wallet.

As mentioned last week, there are some very serious issues with this start-up currency. Apparently there are also some very serious issues with Android.
