My antivirus software is telling me the operating system on my Galaxy S8 has been compromised putting my data at risk.

It also says contact the manufacturer for a solution, I can't find any info about security breaches after 2021, anybody got any ideas what I should do about this ?

Hi @Supermario  ,

 

hat is really unfortunate. This guide may help you clean your S8 from any threads and keep it safe: What to do if your Samsung Galaxy phone has been hacked

Just to add that the S8 is no longer on the Support list and the last security patch is dated April 2021.  There was a fix issued  "G95*FXXUCDVG4 "in August 2022 but changelog only mentioned that GPS stability had been improved.
