In a bid to address the security flaw that has recently been discovered, Samsung says it has resolved the issue with a new software update.

We reported yesterday a newly discovered vulnerability on handsets running the TouchWiz overlay, forcing them to factory reset in under three seconds.

Samsung quickly addresses this threat with a new update.

"We would like to assure our customers that the recent security issue concerning the Galaxy S III has already been resolved through a software update. We recommend all Galaxy S3 customers to download the latest software update, which can be done quickly and easily via the Over-The-Air (OTA) service,"it says.

Check for the latest software update by hitting settings on your device. Scroll to the bottom of the list and select 'About device' and then 'Software update'.

However, since the update is still being pushed out, many users are reporting that their Galaxy S3 still says there’s no update available.
