Some of you may have heard the big news, there is a bit of html code that can remotely do a factory reset on your device while browsing around without your consent or way to stop it. the website has to have it setup and has to the stock web browser. since this exploit was released into the public it is unknown on if any sites may "maliciously" add it in. i cant confirm or deny that this device may be subject to this exploit, but its for teh best that you know anyways.
the code can be viewed via a frame on a website, so some jerk posting the html code into a comment isnt gunna make the site screw your phone up. so it has to be setup to run the exploit, but since it is only a few lines im sure a few sites already have ill intentions. if anyone would like to test their device with the exploit i have a secret page setup that i have been testing my devices on. if it doesnt affect your device than ill post about it here and everyone can breathe a sign of relief.
so far it seems its only samsung devices that are affected but many more could be.
edit: Samsung prevail, Admire and teh ZTE warp are ll suseptible to the core exploit. you can test without wiping your device here
I dont ask for much, but my friend is going through some rough times,
if you wish to donate to me send it his way, he needs it more than i do Donate here
