At the recent times a Samsung spokesperson has act in response to BGR’s inquiry, he saying that the company is looking into the achievable security threat other than no more comment is available at this time. On the other hand an AT&T spokesperson has turned down to comment. Further reporting by Todd Haselton. So, the updated is to reflect that the flaw exists for PIN security as well.
Samsung and AT&T are aware of the user interface issue on the Galaxy S II with AT&T. Currently, when using a security screen lock on the device, the default setting is for a screen timeout. If a user presses the power button on the device after the timeout period it will always require a password. If a user presses the power button on the phone before the timeout period, the device requests a password – but the password is not actually necessary to unlock it.
Samsung and AT&T are investigating a permanent solution. In the meantime, owners of the Galaxy S II can remedy the situation by re-setting their time-out screen to the “immediately” setting. This is done by going to the Settings ->Location and Security->Screen unlock settings->Timeout->Immediately.
So, in the end I’d like to say that what you think about this report which is about Samsung and AT&T let us we know in the comments below…
