Samsung to battle malicious code through software update TNG reported about a malicious code that could possibly restore to factory settings a few Samsung models.

The “Killer Code” issue which attacks your phones and resets it to its original state has now been resolved by Samsung.

Your Galaxy S III, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S Advance and Beam can now be protected against this malicious code.

The South Korean company has been quick in dealing with the problem and said, “We would like to assure our customers that the recent security issue concerning the Galaxy S III has already been resolved through a software update.”

“We recommend all Galaxy S III customers to download the latest software update, which can be done quickly and easily via the Over-The-Air (OTA) service,” they added.

It is highly recommended that owners of affected devices immediately update their softwares, in order to avoid being a victim of this malicious code. Your device would be less susceptible to this attack and may protect your files including photos, music, videos and others.
