Secure your smartphone against the newest Android vulnerability.
Bitdefender USSD Wipe Stopper is our response to a system vulnerability that allows attackers to wipe out your Android running device, lock its SIM card or execute any other USSD command code.
What’s an USSD code anyway? you might ask and the answer will surely come as a shock. It’s one of those *123# harmless codes you type to do things like display the phone's IMEI.
Just loading a cleverly coded webpage in your mobile browser could trigger it. The result? Your phone would run a special USSD command and reset to its factory settings without asking for confirmation. No more downloaded apps, no more photos, no music, nothing. Your data would disintegrate right in front of your eyes, within seconds.
Unfortunately, this is a reality for most Android users. If your phone is running Android 4.1 or lower you might be at risk.
Fortunately, Bitdefender, the creator of the best security software in 2012, has once again come up with the right solution for you.
Bitdefender USSD Wipe Stopper is free. Find it on Google Play (or just use the QR code provided on this page), download it and use the simple tester to find out if your device is vulnerable to such attacks.
Regardless of the result of the vulnerability test, USSD Wipe Stopper will then simply wait and watch. When someone tries to run an unauthorized USSD code on your Android running device, USSD Wipe Stopper will warn you about it. Watch the video to learn more.
