The Samsung SIII users felt relieved today when a spokesperson from Samsung told the media that problem of remote wiping has been fixed.
A spokeswoman for the South Korean handset maker told Ben Woods of Tech Tech Boom that the issue is now a non-issue as it has already been patched, but did not say when it was fixed, or which software version is the secure one.
“We would like to assure our customers that the recent security issue concerning the Galaxy SIII
has already been resolved through a software update,” the spokeswoman told ZDNet. “We recommend all Galaxy SIII customers to download the latest software update, which can be done quickly and easily via the over-the-air (OTA) service.”
A word from Samsung spokesperson has certainly calm down the S3 owners but what remains unanswered is what about SII and other Samsung Handset owners, are they still at risk? According to reports online the problem is related to the TouchWiz UI rather than just the Galaxy S3.
