    A simple line of malicious code embedded in a Web page can cause some
    Samsung Galaxy smartphones to lose all their data, security researchers
    revealed this week. But Samsung says a fix has been out for months.

    The code, composed of 11 digits and symbols, was revealed at a security
    conference in Argentina, according to a report by The Telegraph. Samsung
    issued a statement saying it has already dealt with the issue:

    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.
