Ryan Welton, a mobile security researcher from NowSecure, has discovered a flaw in Samsung Galaxy smartphones including the latest S6, S5, and S4. NowSecure explained that the source of the security threat is Samsung’s preinstalled keyboard app. Exploiting the keyboard’s security flaw would allow cyber criminals to access your phone’s sensors, GPS, microphone, and even camera. In addition, attackers might be able to remotely install or tamper with apps on your phone. According to the company, one of the biggest dangers brought by the security loophole is the risk of privacy regarding your phone’s messages and calls. Visit GMA News Online to read the whole news.
