    I figured. I don't have much confidence in this particular news outlet. It went by on my Facebook feed so I was curious. It would figure they are sensationalizing nothing.

    It IS something to be concerned about. Samsung has announced a fix to be done within days and will be done with a security update so it doesn't wait for a carrier update.

    Didn't you read the article here on AC? Have to be on an unsecured access point and the intruder just so happens to catch you right at that moment. You have a better chance of hitting the lotto twice.

    Amazing misinformation being put out in this thread. now secure cyber security organization who discovered this have rated this 8.3 out of 10 in terms of seriousness. They have also stated that this may also be triggered on a network and not just on WiFi.

    Really? 8.3 out of 10? Yup. But only if they catch you right at that moment. Chances are, slim or nill at best. And the term "may also" does not constitute definite. Did you read the AC article?? I'm sure they got it from the same source. Besides read cnets report as well. They iterate the same thing I said.

    Not really that concerned. Don't use your device on an unsecured network if it bothers you and do be aware of your environment. Samsung is just doing the responsible and prudent thing in releasing a security patch.
