Shouldn't this be a Google problem and not a Samsung issue? Google make the Android OS afterall.
And Akshay...iOS market share is shrinking. For many months now. Android and in particular Samsungs share is growing.

Correct me if im wrong but isnt the "processor" considered hardware?
So far, Alephzain has confirmed that the Galaxy S II, III, Note II and the Meizu MX are at risk, but notes that the exploit might work on any device running a Exynos 4210 or 4412 processor

I bet Samsung considers this a feature rather than a bug...

It may not be patchable, then again, maybe it is. The limera1n exploit for the A4 and older devices cannot be patched via software, as it is a hardware exploit. It would be interesting to see if this security issue in these devices falls under the same non-patchable category.

Two thoughts . One is that android Arguably has always had malware exploits or whenever you want to call them My second thought is related to the comment section BlackBerry 10 actually looks amazing I'm not sure if it's going to save rim or research in motion personally but it does look amazing maybe you should YouTube it

Also blackberry is not nearly close to being what it used to. It's fallen to rock bottom. Trying to defend yourself by saying the government is testing it, is ridiculous! They are trying Nokias, samsungs, iPhones and way more. They are constantly testing.
There is no "phone" the government uses. Office phones are iPhones a lot now but they are using indestructible androids in the military.
Just because a phone is safe doesn't mean the government will use it. If they are worried about someone hacking directly to the phone and not it's clients (like gmail) than they will definitely be adding their own tech.

What isn't mentioned is that The Droid community already had a fix for this hours after it was discovered. In short, it involves a chmod on a /dev/exynoz-mem.
Anyone here who bashes Android for this is missing the larger picture. As a result of a totally open OS and platform, we managed to isolate a problem and strengthen our OS, as well as give our manufacturers a heads up on avoiding this in the future.
Just remember...the close nature of iOS, and the lack of a jailbreak just means that problems will be harder to find and patch on iOS, and only Apple can really pake those patches.
While this should never of happened in the first place, we have it patched. iOS is still looking for a jailbreak.
