Samsung, LG phones at risk of malware attacks

Samsung and LG phones have been found to be at risk of malware attacks due to a vulnerability in the devices’ emergency alert systems. Researchers at Check Point, a cybersecurity company, found that hackers could use the emergency alert system to send malicious messages to targeted phones, potentially allowing them to steal data or take control of the device. The vulnerability affects devices running on Android 8 or higher, and Samsung and LG have released patches to address the issue. However, this underscores the ongoing need for consumers to be vigilant about their device’s security and to keep their software up to date to avoid potential vulnerabilities.
