XDA Developers member alephzain says they discovered the potentially damaging problem when investigating new ways to root the Samsung Galaxy S3. The vulnerability lies within Samsung's Exynos 4 chip, and means any app could -- in theory -- extract data from a phone's RAM or shoot a jet of molten malicious code directly into the kernel. "RAM dump, kernel code injection and others could be possible via app installation from Play Store," alephzain writes. The Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Note 2 could also play host to the same security hole.
"The good news is we can easily obtain root on these devices," the original post reads, "and the bad is there is no iphone xr protection collection sheer - crystal - blush control over it."It seems users have been able to plug the hole with some industrious tinkering, though adjusting the smart phone's code appears to be disabling the S3's camera, I've contacted Samsung about the reported vulnerability and I'll update this story if I hear back, Update: Samsung has been in touch to say, "We are currently in the process of conducting an internal review."Issues in code are to be expected, but it's up to manufacturers to make sure their gadgets don't leave customers exposed, If something in Samsung's code really opens the possibility that smart phone owners could have their mobiles meddled with, here's hoping it gets patched quickly..
Are you using one of Samsung's smart phones? What do you think of it? Tell me in the comments or on our Facebook wall. The S2 and Note 2 may also be open to the vulnerability, which could let apps take control of your smart phone. Samsung's most popular mobiles could be vulnerable to app-based attacks, a developer says, thanks to a security wobble in Samsung's own-brand Exynos 4 processor.

The update to Windows Phone 8 will save the Lumia 920 from randomly rebooting without any warning, a problem that's affected the new phone since launch, Dutch site WP7.nl reports that Netherlanders can update their older Lumia 800 phones via the Zune software earlier than expected. But at the time of writing, the update has yet to board the ferry at the Hook of Holland iphone xr protection collection sheer - crystal - blush to head to Hull or Harwich here in the UK -- my unlocked Lumia 800 is detecting no updates just yet, Fingers crossed the UK networks will quickly push out the update to the three-and-a-half people that own current Lumia phones..
Windows Phone 7.8 gives you more flexibility in the size and layout of the signature colourful live tiles on your home page, animated with updates on your new messages, photos and more. That and a new Xbox tile are pretty much the only new feature coming to 7.8, sadly, as existing Lumia phones are cut off from the latest Windows Phone updates. The Windows Phone 8 update sparked controversy when Microsoft revealed that existing phones would not benefit from the update, and would even find that new apps built for Windows Phone 8 wouldn't work on current phones. That effectively makes lame ducks of the Lumia 800 and its ilk, receiving new features in a piecemeal fashion with the 7.8 update.
