Is your Samsung phone texting private pics without permission?

Heads up if you're a Samsung user - some phones have started randomly texting your photos without your permission.

"Last night around 2:30 am, my phone sent [my girlfriend] my entire photo gallery over text but there was no record of it on my messages app". What's even worse is that the app reportedly leaves no evidence of photos being sent, which means users won't know when their phone may have unwittingly sent sensitive photos to a friend or co-worker until some time has passed.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says socialism only 'part of what I am'
Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.), a 10-term congressman and member of the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives. The candidate has been at the center of attention since her upset in Tuesday's primary against incumbent Rep.

Additional owners of the Galaxy S9, S9+ and Note 8 devices have complained about picture dumps, prompting one Reddit user to quip: "Do S9's come with divorce lawyers?" Users only find out the photos have been sent when they're asked about it. Samsung has said it's now looking into the problem.

Some assumed it was a problem specific to T-Mobile US, connected in some way to the cell network's recent Rich Communications Services update, however, T-Mob has denied any involvement, and the photo-spaffing bug was spotted affecting folks on other carriers, such as AT&T, it is claimed. There was a record of the message in that person's phone carrier logs, but not within the app. Errors included scheduled text messages ending up in the wrong threads.

Kevin Durant plans to re-sign with Golden State Warriors
This year, the Warriors only have a taxpayer mid-level exception (up to $5.3 million) and veteran's minimum deals to sign players. Cap space is in short supply among teams this summer, which could affect the length and worth of several contracts for non-stars.

In a statement, a Samsung spokesperson said "We are aware of the reports regarding this matter and our technical teams are looking into it". Your other option seems to be switching to a different texting app, like Textra or Google's Android Messages app, which thus far appear to be unaffected.

There are now two fixes if you are anxious about the issue affecting your device. Go to the settings menu that handles apps' permissions and deny Samsung Messages' access to your storage.
