Here's a test to see if your phone is vulnerable:
Andriod TEL URL Handling exploit demo by Ravishankar Borgaonkar

This link is SAFE to click. It will NOT wipe your phone. But if the result of your clicking this link is that your phone shows you your MEID number, then your phone would be vulnerable to the REAL hack.

If all you see is *#06# in your dialer, then you are safe. If you were to press CALL from there, you should get your carrier message saying the number you dialed is invalid.
