Vulnerability Discovered in Samsung Mobile Devices

Samsung users take note – a vulnerability has been discovered in Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Tab3 mobile devices that could allow access to sensitive personal information, including names, addresses, and passwords, over unsecured WiFi networks. Initially discovered by Mediatek Digital, the security hole was first reported by German news outlet Heise Security last week, and has been replicated on S4 and Tab3 products here in the states. Samsung announced in a recent press release that the issue has been addressed and repaired in the latest firmware upgrade, although the fix has yet to be independently confirmed.
