One of the most popular and useful security functions of mobile handsets can be turned against the owner. Samsung’s ‘Find My Mobile’ system, which allows you to to locate, lock, ring, and wipe your device should it be stolen or lost, can be taken over, potentially allowing a hacker to remotely lock the device, change its passcode, or wipe the device according to Mashable.
The remote hack exploits a flaw in Samsung’s Find My Mobile system to enact denial-of-service attacks. If ‘Find My Mobile’ is enabled, it means that hackers can lock the Samsung handset and change its unlock code.
