[IMPORTANT] USSD code execution exploit – how to stay safe untill Samsung patches my device

Samsung issued such statement regarding the problem:

We would like to assure customers that the recent security issue affecting the Galaxy S III has already been addressed in a software update. We believe this issue was isolated to early production devices, and devices currently available are not affected by this issue. To ensure customers are fully protected, Samsung advises checking for software updates through the ‘Settings: About device: Software update’ menu. We are in the process of evaluating other Galaxy models.

As for now we recommend one of this apps:
- Auto-reset blocker by Rusty Burchfield
- TelStop by Collin Mulliner
- NoTelURL by Joerg Voss

to stay secure until Samsung will patch all affected devices.
PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW THE APP DESCRIPTION FROM ANDROID MARKET

ALSO PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH ALL ANDROID USERS YOU KNOW
AS NOT ONLY SAMSUNG DEVICES ARE VULNERABLE TO THIS EXPLOIT
