Samsung Galaxy S III

Good news for Galaxy S III owners concerned about that reset-causing USSD vulnerability that we learned about yesterday, as Samsung has come out with a statement saying that the problem has already been taken care of in a recent software update. The company says that all users should update to the latest software for their Galaxy S III, which can be done over the air, and then they will be protected from the exploit. The company's full statement, sent to Android Central:

"We would like to assure our customers that the recent security issue concerning the GALAXY S III has already been resolved through a software update.

We recommend all GALAXY S III customers to download the latest software update, which can be done quickly and easily via the Over-The-Air (OTA) service."

Meanwhile, Samsung says that it's "conducting an internal review" on how the flaw affects the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note, so owners of those devices may want to avoid any suspicious links for the time being. It's good to hear that Galaxy S III folk should already have the bug-killing update in their possession, and that if you're not running the lastest software on your GSIII for whatever reason, the fix is just an OTA away. Once we hear more about the other affected phones, we'll give you a shout. Stay tuned.
