Verizon S5 users to start receiving Marshmallow update 6.0.1 today

May 31, 2016 - 3:06 PM - by CR6
Per our Editor in Chief @dgstorm, on Android Forum at, Verizon S5 owners should be receiving their update starting today.

It's confirmed. The Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be receiving its Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update sometime today. As always, the update will push out OTA in batches, so YMMV as far as when the update will hit your device.

The new update will be version number MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPD1, and it also adds WiFi calling, updated app icons, Ultra High Quality Audio (Hi-Fi Audio), and Android for Work. Sadly, it will also come with a ton of new bloatware... .

Here's our dedicated section on DroidForums, for further discussion of the Samsung Galaxy S5: Samsung Galaxy S5 Discussions

Mark Zuckerberg had social media accounts hacked

Jun 06, 2016 - 10:29 AM - by CR6
Interesting story from our Editor & Chief @dgstorm on Android Forum at

If you have been starting to worry that your online presence is easily compromised, then this report will NOT do anything to allay those fears. If you have always assumed that we are all easily hacked, then you have probably been right the whole time. The latest news worthy hacking success seems to prove that.

Mark Zuckerberg himself had several of his own social media accounts hacked over the weekend. The Zuck's Twitter, Pinterest and maybe his Instagram accounts were breached on Sunday. Supposedly, the way his accounts were hacked was because of the LinkedIn security breach from back in 2012.

Basically Zuckerberg doesn't get on those accounts anymore and didn't ever bother to change the passwords. When the LinkedIn account passwords were compromised (something that came to light only recently), a group called OurMine was able to get hold of Zuck's password which was supposedly "dadada." This was the same password he used for Twitter, Pinterest and his Instagram accounts, so he was easily compromised. The OurMine group claimed responsibility for the hack, but also indicated that they were simply trying to raise awareness.
