Shamesung? Lol, bet you're an iPhone user who can't remove you pitiful battery when it dies after a couple of months. Not to mention, anyone can have their phone hacked under a non secure wifi network, another story which has been blown out of proportion purely because there's nothing better to write about.
apple fanboys are ridiculous. laughing at Samsung when the issue is from 3rd party keyboard. what a bunch of dimwits. go have fun with itoys. afaik, some samsung phones have SWYPE keyboard pre-installed, NOT swiftkey. this is a sensational headline.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2015Don't get your hopes up. Everyone knives Shamsung sucks at giving updates. LolI agree that samsung sucks at updates.. At least I can buy samsung flagships everytime so I don't need to wait for an update. I would buy s7 that runs android M as soon as samsung releases it. It would beat all the smartphones easily
I never wanted a Samsung anyway and this only strengthen my decision. Good luck to the poor suckers that got hacked...
never knew any samsung phone that came SwiftKey pre-installed...
galaxygrand prime, note2/3/4 and s5 are not pre installed...
droid4every1, 17 Jun 2015The generic samsung keyboard is a modified swiftkey keyboardI thought it was Swype and not swiftkey. Did Samsung make a switch? I remember on S2 it was using Swype.
blizzard, 17 Jun 2015i think i remember that after ios 8, iphone has 3rd party keypads and swiftkey is one of them..'For now, only the pre-installed SwiftKey app is vulnerable, not the ones from Google Play Store or Apple iOS Store' - please the article carefully before leaving comments tq
By reading whole article, it's safe to assume that most of concerned devices are carriers ones, since many models received several updates (even minor) since last november fyi.
And this is why you dont preinstall sh*t on the system partition. System apps are there for elevated privileges, not for some POS software that people want to make uninstallable...

Adil Shaikh, 17 Jun 2015Samsung was never good at security be it in a s6 or a pocket Few OTA AND Very Slow SW updates... moreThey are popular because of advertisements. Samsung phones are the cheapest known famous brand(but lately they increased the price insanely). These users advertise their phone in the internet like "s6 has a heart rate monitor, touchwiz, etc." it is true that samsung phones are rich ij terms of functionality but they focus on unneeded features that the mindless users thought they is great. They do not understand that these features are just gimmicks. While other brand focuses on neeeded functionality like the 3days battery life in xperia z3, compact design of lg g4 and z3c for one handed usage, front facing speakers on htc, waterproofing in z3.
