A newly discovered vulnerability dubbed “CVE-2022-22292” allowed hackers to make phone calls, install and delete apps, weaken HTTPS security by downloading arbitrary root certificates, and deploy factory resets (i.e., wiping all of your data) on Samsung phones.

Kryptowire, a mobile security and privacy solutions company, found the critical security flaw in Samsung devices running Android versions 9, 10, 11 and 12. Kryptowire disclosed its findings to Samsung last November. Fortunately, the Korea-based tech giant patched the vulnerability in February.
