Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones vulnerable to hacking: researchersTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -Samsung’s Galaxy S7 smartphones contain a microchip security flaw, uncovered earlier this year, that put tens of millions of devices at risk to hackers looking to spy on their users, researchers told Reuters. 

The Galaxy 7 and other smartphones made by Samsung Electronics (005930.KS) were previously thought to be immune to a security vulnerability known as Meltdown, which researchers said affected most of the world’s PCs, smartphones and other computing devices.

Researchers from Austria’s Graz Technical University told Reuters they have figured out a way to exploit the Meltdown vulnerability to attack Galaxy S7 handsets.
