Automatic Sharing Of Images
« on: July 03, 2018, 01:14:14 PM »

New feature by Samsung phones, they are now sending random photos to other people. Could be a problem with kompromat images or other sensitive images.

Samsungís smartphones may not be randomly bursting into flames now, but a strange and creepy new problem has appeared: some users are having photos randomly and quietly sent to other people.

They should advertise it as: "Feature you always wanted but never had the courage to ask".

Yeah my phone is pretty safe/boring but I keep hearing about sexting so someone must have more interesting pics on their phones.

Even an innocent shot of your beloved pussy cat could trigger the sending action. Same for beaver images.

If only NY congressman Weiner used that Samsung, he could say "Your Honor, I did not send that picture to that kid." ;)
