Samsung Users Report Their Phones Are Text Messaging Pictures to Random Contacts

Users report that Samsung's default texting app, Samsung Messages, has been sending photos on the device to random contacts through MMS/SMS messaging.

Concerned users should ensure that Samsung Message does not have permission to access their phone's storage, which will prevent it from being able to send anything on the phone.

Only users who updated to the latest version appear to be affected, according to users who discovered and reported the issue on the /r/GalaxyNote8 subreddit.

Trump narrows list for Kennedy replacement; will announce pick July 9
They're all saying, 'Don't do that, you don't do that, you shouldn't do that, ' but I'm putting conservative people on". President Donald Trump plans to announce his pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on July 9.

'Oddly enough, my wife's phone did that last night, and mine did it the night before, ' said Reddit user Sfkn123.

Samsung phone owners: Think of the most revealing photo stored in the photo library on your smartphone. The only way people know this is happening, is once they receive a response from the recipient of the message sent. The second fix is to stop using Samsung Messages until the company says the issue has been resolved and switch to a third-party messaging app instead.

A Samsung spokesperson told The Verge it's "aware of the reports" and that its technical teams are 'looking into it'. "However, there was record of it [in my] T-Mobile logs".

Foolishness killed those that died in Otedola bridge tanker accident - Twitter user
Motorists caught up in the chaos have questioned why fully-laden tankers were allowed on the road at peak periods. The statement added that the state government was clearing damaged vehicles from the road.

Some assumed it was a problem specific to T-Mobile US, connected in some way to the cell network's recent Rich Communications Services update, however, T-Mob has denied any involvement, and the photo-spaffing bug was spotted affecting folks on other carriers, such as AT&T, it is claimed.

Samsung is encouraging those experiencing this issue to call the company directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG. You will have full texting capabilities and you don't have to look back, in case Samsung lost your trust forever. This message doesn't show up on their end, but the other person's phone shows the message as if it was sent manually.

Samsung acknowledged an inquiry from Gizmodo that it was aware of the bug and that it is now working on a fix.
