We recently heard about the Samsung Galaxy S3 lockscreen bug that would give anyone access to your handset, and now it would appear that Samsung is working on a software update which will address the issue.
In the meantime a security firm called Lookout has released an app that will stop the lockscreen bug on the Samsung Galaxy S3, and the app apparently closes the bug.
To mitigate the risk, when Lookout detects the emergency contact dialer has been backgrounded, we preemptively bring it back to the forefront so that the rest of the phone cannot be accessed.
Affected devices appear to be the Samsung Galaxy S3 models and the Samsung Note II. Lookout Galaxy S3 Mini users are also protected.
Samsung have yet to officially announce when they will release a software update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 lockscreen bug, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
