Samsung Vulnerability Is Bad

This is not a good thing if you are a Samsung user.  It appears that there is a kernel vulnerability that allows any app that requires access to RAM a deeper whole right into the kernel.  This is a very big deal and it affects a few Samsung devices including the GS3, GS2, Note and Note 2.  ZDNet has more information and there is already a quick fix, but it comes with some drawbacks as well.  We'll have to wait on Samsung for a real fix - and soon.

Keep in mind that this issue is not with Android itself, but with Samsung's custom tweaked images that are on these devices.
