I don't care about this. Only idiots processes payments through phones. As long as they don't get money from me, I don't care. I never even really have to buy 'paid' Android apps. Oh, the beauty of Android.
I own USA Galaxy S3 It has Snapdragen 1.5 dual core not Exynos. USA version don't have this issue.

Anonymous, 17 Dec 2012It gets ram access, so it can steal ram info, so if you dont open a picture, it cannot be stolenTsk tsk, thats still a big problem though.. it means it can also steal log-in infos coz that is stored in the cache which is also part of the ram alotmet right??..
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2012It gets ram access, so it can steal ram info, so if you dont open a picture, it cannot be stolenIncorrect, an app could use this exploit to root the device with no superuser app and gain access to all data on the phone.
Well at least we know about this but what about the millions that just buy phones and don't care about visiting forums etc, the devices mentioned must number about 100 million globally, Samsung need to push patches for this asap, as many will be unaware they're even vulnerable. And not rely on XDA although apparently Chainfire has bought the thread to Samsungs attention.
This exploit must be done through an app, a webpage is not enough, so dont sideload apps until you have a patch, thats all you need to do to be safe. Most of us dont sideload apps anyway, and we dont install Play Store apps with much less than 4 stars, i doubt an exploit app that made it to the Play Store will get 4 stars, right...

Samsung & Android? Maybe allows Google to use your details to market your information to the wider world?
Android has too many issues. Reason why I left to iOS and then Windows Phone.
I think S2 has a pretty good battery performance, but when it was updated to 4.0.4, it consumes battery during stand-by mode.So that must be it. The ICS 4.0.4 version surfaces the issue.Is there anyone who has the same problem? please help.

Which means they didn't found out about that until just recently. So NOW, your S2 and Note2 are vulnerable to attacks.
AElHusseiny, 17 Dec 2012What does that even mean? Just saying ... it is no big deal ..Wow! You don't know what this news mean?? It means that if some one who is crafty enough to create a app that could steal any of your data using that glitch. Does that make any sense at all with you?
