This seriously shocking security hole could enable an attacker to take control of your Samsung smartphone – check yours now.
Researchers at Kryptowire have just published a report detailing how they discovered a serious high-severity vulnerability in the pre-installed Phone app across multiple models that could enable a hacker to take control of your phone. What sort of control? Well, the researchers said, everything from a factory reset and making calls to installing, or deleting, apps. All by an unauthorized user simply if the victim installed a third-party that was tweaked to “mimic system-level activity and hijack critical protected functionality,” according to the Kryptowire report.
