Samsung in a latest statement confirmed that the vulnerability in Find my Mobile system is already fixed on October 13th. We earlier reported that security researcher Mohamed A. Basset found a loophole in Samsung’s lost and stolen phone tracking system.
It was also reported that a new security flaw may allow criminals to take control over your Samsung Galaxy phone and even wipe all your data remotely.
The positive news is that Samsung already fixed the problem. Samsung says the “reported issue occurred on the Find My Mobile website, and was not a problem with any mobile device.” Best of all Samsung already fixed the website on October 13th.
So if you turned off your Find my Mobile service after reading the last security problem, you can turn on the feature again. You can do it from the Security settings of your Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
