Android NFC Hijack Exploit

The Android software that facilitates Near Field Communication (NFC) on mobile devices can apparently be used to hijack the device via the web browser. NFC is one of the Next Big Things, allowing communication over very short distances (a few inches) to allow easy, fast monetary transactions, photo sharing and the like. It's not the NFC protocol that is at fault in this case, but Androids' use of it. Hopefully, this can be fixed quickly by Google.
