Galaxy S III USSD Wiping Exploit Already Fixed
Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones have been recently said to be vulnerable to a specific exploit that could result in the entire device being wiped clean from the browser through the use of a USSD code.
However, it appears that Samsung was actually capable of patching the USSD exploit, and that most of its Galaxy S III devices are safe from it.
Moreover, it appears that the issue does not affect Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-based smartphones at all, and that Samsung Galaxy handsets powered by this platform release are indeed safe. The guys over at Android Police also note that software updates that Samsung has recently pushed out to its Galaxy S III devices were meant to resolve the issue.
