    So I've had both apps on my phones for over a year now, and all the sudden today Lookout is calling Open Signal Maps malware. Has anyone else had this happen? Shall I just ignore the warning or is this valid?

    I personally wouldn't worry about it. Like you said, you have had those apps for over a year.

    Similar and quite humorous, Avast updated today for me and told me Facebook Messenger was malware. It kinda is from a macro POV.

    Hi guys,
    Sam here from OpenSignal. We got this report from a number of users and reached out to Lookout. We got the following email back:
    We also pushed out a quick update which also seems to fix the problem.
    In other news we have a huge update to our Android app coming out. If you have Android 4.2 you can already get it, for the rest it should be within a week or two.
