    Hi all

    Apologies if this has been posted before, but I checked the first page and figured this would be in there as it's quite a significant find. There appears to be a security risk on the S3 which can be exploited by a simple line of code on a webpage resulting in the phone being formatted with no warning. Some data here but it's very basic as I cannot do too much digging or elaborate on this as I'm on my phone. Just something for you all to bare in mind!

    Might be worth checking to see if you're at risk and, if required, seeing how you can prevent this from happening to you.
