We reported on a USSD wipe bug in Samsung devices, and it was later discovered to effect a lot more than just Samsungs. If there is some code in a site, it can initiate a remote wipe of your device without any confirmation. Very malicious and absolutely horrible if it were to happen to you. However, there is a fix.
Bitdefender USSD Wipe Stopper will intercept any code that tries to run in your dialer, warning you. That’s all you need, a warning. We suggest not letting any site ever accessing your dialer. Grab the app from the source link, and we hope this helps all of you with affected devices!
