Samsung Knox Software not that safe

In this times of digital purchases, banking and bookings, Samsung aimed to create a safer environment for users. Alas, there is a problem.

"Serious vulnerability" has been found in the software by cybersecurity researchers at Ben-Gurion University in Israel, which means that user's data is not that secure after all.

The mentioned vulnerability might allow an attacker to record data communications and read emails of Knox's users.

Samsung, in their defence, have said, that the test was made on a device, which did not have all Knox's security features installed.

This is a bad time for Samsung to recieve such news, as U.S. Department of Defense  purchased about 500 Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphones to test, because of considerations for use by their employees.
