Some Samsung users say their phones randomly sent

The problem is stemming from the Samsung Messages app, which is the default SMS app on the devices which are affected. Go to the settings menu that handles apps' permissions and deny Samsung Messages' access to your storage.

A Reddit user reported their Samsung phone sent their entire photo gallery to their girlfriend.

The T-Mobile update seems to be occurring automatically, and many users may not realize their phones have already updated. The poster says that even though there was no evidence of the mass photo sharing in Samsung Messages, it showed up on his T-Mobile logs.

Samsung is encouraging those experiencing this issue to call the company directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG.

Neymar unfazed by critics after sweet and sour display downs Mexico
Paulinho, who makes those surging runs through the centre, was forced to be in line with Casemiro, who sits ahead of the defence. Brazil manager Tite believed Neymar was treated unfairly , stating: "I saw what happened".

"The recommendations from Samsung are to now not update to the latest messages app and any who did should disable the app's access to their phones storage area so it is unable to grab random photos".

According to posts on Reddit and Samsung's official support boards first spotted by Gizmodo, the devices affected include the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8.

'Um, this is disturbing, ' one person said.

Another referenced the self-immolation of Note 7s debacle by stating: "Give me a spontaneously exploding phone any day of the week, Samsung, instead of this nightmare scenario".

Heat advisory issued for today
An excessive heat warning remains in effect through late Saturday for Chicago as sweltering summer temperatures stick in the area. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when vehicle interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

"We are aware of the reports regarding this matter and our technical teams are looking into it", a Samsung spokesman told us.

Currently, the prevailing theory as to what's causing this bug is a weird interaction between Samsung Messages and recent RCS profile updates that have rolled out on some carriers. RCS was meant to update the old short messaging system (SMS) protocol with new features.

Samsung Australia also confirmed they were investigating the reports.

"We are not aware of any customers in Australia that have experienced this issue".
