Samsung Find My Mobile

Samsung saw its Find My Mobile service come under attack by reports of a vulnerability. This was patched back in October, but Samsung today announced that no data was compromised. It was reported that certain individuals could gain access to a smartphone and lock/unlock the device and even ring the phone.

The company also states that even before the patch was applied, user data was still safe from hackers. Of course, "Samsung Electronics takes the security of [their] products very seriously and remains committed to providing our customers with the best user experience."

It's positive to see the company release an update hastily, as well as coming out later to reaffirm that no user data was compromised. Do you use Find My Mobile? Let us know in the comments if you were affected.
