There is a microchip security vulnerability in the Samsung S7 mobile phone, which will lead to the leakage of tens of millions of users' privacy data using this mobile phone.
Currently, Meltdown security vulnerabilities appear in most PCs, smartphones and other devices around the world. Previously Samsung S7 and some Samsung-made phones were not considered to be affected by Meltdown, but security researchers at the Graz University of Technology in Austria said they had found a way to make the Samsung S7 likely to suffer a Meltdown attack. The team plans to announce their findings at the Black Hat Security Technology Conference in Las Vegas.
In January of this year, Samsung claimed to have released a security patch to protect the Galaxy S7 phone from the Meltdown vulnerability, and launched a new software update in July. Samsung said: "Samsung is very serious about security issues. The first thing we consider in designing products and services is security."
According to statistics from market research firm Strategy Analytics, there are currently about 30 million users worldwide using the Galaxy S7. So will there be you?
