Watch Out for that Link!

Careful where you surf on that Samsung Android phone of yours:

A phone dialer code can hard reset a Galaxy S2, S3, and a bunch of minor devices that use Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay. The idea is that the operator could enter it on the keypad manually to hard reset all of the data. However, it was discovered last month that an SMS could carry the number and reset the device (video above). Now, it seems some folks have tried embedding the call function in a web frame with those numbers. They were able to reset the Samsung Galaxy devices just by having the device visit a website.


Click a link, Blake your phone? It’s safe to say Samsung didn’t copy that from Apple.
