Security Researcher Dan Rosenberg Calls Bullshit On Samsung "Backdoor" Vulnerability Published By FSF

Security Researcher Dan Rosenberg Calls Bullshit On Samsung "Backdoor" Vulnerability Published By FSF

If you've been watching your tech news feed regularly over the past day or so, you've probably come across at least one story making the rounds about a "backdoor" vulnerability in some newer Samsung phones. The original report, published by the Free Software Foundation and written by Paul Kocialkowski, a developer of Replicant, does all but directly accuse Samsung of planting a method of securing remote access to users' devices. A quick read over of the piece makes it rather obvious that the author has a rather significant bone to pick with any and all proprietary software:

Provided that the modem runs proprietary software and can be remotely controlled, that backdoor provides remote access to the phone's data, even in the case where the modem is isolated and cannot access the storage directly.

[MWC 2014] Galaxy S5 Hardware Hands-On: Play It Again, Samsung

[MWC 2014] Galaxy S5 Hardware Hands-On: Play It Again, Samsung

Love it or hate it, the Galaxy S5 will almost certainly be the best-selling Android phone in 2014. Whether or not the hardware actually warrants those kinds of incredible sales figures is largely irrelevant, thanks to Samsung's marketing machine and consumers' general willingness to buy things they're familiar with. And "familiar" is certainly an excellent way to describe the phone's hardware. While it isn't quite the ho-hum upgrade that came with the GS4, and there are some significant hardware features that add to its value, the GS5's overall design probably won't win it any new fans.

[MWC 2014] Hands-On With The Nokia X, X+, And XL: Three Phones, One Experience

You've probably read by now that Nokia's making Android phones. Sort of. And I'm sure there are all sorts of analysts, experts, and other people trying to scream at you collectively that this means something. Nokia's changing directions. Nokia's making Android a backup if the Microsoft merger doesn't go through. Nokia's Android is going to finally end Google's dominance in the world of cheap smartphones!

Let's leave all that aside, because those are frankly annoying and pointless conversations to have.

Galaxy Gear Successors 'Gear 2' And 'Gear 2 Neo' Leaked In Photos, May Not Be Galaxy-Branded [Update: Orange Variant]
