(NECN) - In Money Matters, a major security flaw has been found in Android phones. The hole can supposedly help hackers get access to the personal information of some users. Research assistants at Germany's Ulm University discovered the flaw, and say it affects about 97% of Android users.

Also, some members of Congress are working to protect workers' 401K funds by filing a bill that would make it harder for workers to tap into the retirement funds, and when they do, make it easier for them to repay those loans. A recent study by Aon Hewitt reports that in 2010, almost 28% of people with 401Ks had outstanding loans on them.

And, Hulu is trying to close in on a deal that would renew some shows, but possibly delay the site's access for its free service. The proposed multi-year deal could allow the site to stream current TV episodes while media companies offer them for free on their own websites.
