Samsung Denies Accusations of Collecting Private Data In Korea

The Korea University Graduate School of Information Security conducted a research and made the results public. They claim that Samsung devices such as the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note are collecting private information, such as contacts, e-mails and others, via pre-installed software.

The manufacturer was quick to react with a statement denying accusations: “Samsung never collected or used private information of smartphone users. All applications provided by Samsung have no ability to collect private data”.

Smartphone security is currently situated on the thin line between unfortunate reality and paranoia. Users are very concerned about their privacy in general, especially with media bombs like the one surrounding Carrier IQ, regarding to which the company’s VP recently said that it poses no threat to privacy at all.
