      Samsung Phones Vulnerable to Hackers

      Guardian Liberty Voice reports Smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 phone are vulnerable to hackers, despite the much-vaunted enterprise software called Knox in them, according to Israeli Ben-Gurion University security researchers. Hackers can get at your email, personal data, and other information you would like to keep private.

      Supposedly, the Knox enterprise security software is as secure as Blackberry software. Up until this revelation by the Ben-Gurion University researchers, at least, the U.S. government was contemplating using the Samsung Galaxy phones, says Guardian Liberty Voice.

      Samsung, while not denying that there’s a potential for their Knox security software to be hacked, are downplaying that possibility, while investigating the research results.
