To my surprise, my phone.apk is still version 1.0

This is surprising because it is known for quite some time to have serious bugs which make it easy to wipe your phone.

McAfee Dialer Protection protects your phone's APK.

Description

McAfee Dialer Protection keeps you safe from a known vulnerability that could potentially wipe your entire mobile device back to factory default settings, meaning your settings, contacts, photos, videos, apps will be lost.

The operating system your smartphone is running may be vulnerable to potential misuse of USSD commands that could wipe your entire phone. Tapping on a link to a cleverly coded web page could order your phone to reset itself to factory settings and disintegrate all your private data with it. Simply opening a malicious website, either directly or by a link, could instigate a dialer exploit that instantly orders your phone to take unwanted actions, potentially including a factory reset (wiping out all your personal settings, data and apps) or destruction of your SIM card.

Any Android phone running Phone.apk v 4.1 or lower is at risk and that's the broader base of them. Install McAfee Dialer Protection to protect against such attacks. Now, when you tap on an exploiting link, McAfee will intercept and block the USSD command.

... Karma!

Related to mentioned problem, I doubt that problem comes from corrupted Android OS... and you will need to install it from scratch (again?).


Before that, do you have the possibility to check the events with the "same" phone from a friend?

From scratch???? NEVER again :P

Running about 10 antivirus programs at the moment, the BIG problems seem to have been solved.

I'm waiting for another certificate error: I had the last one this morning.

And tomorrow (?) I'll make a nandroid backup before restoring official ROM again. And with the proper tools I should be able to restore my Home Screens easily... Should :)

Also see my article about back up and restore of Home Screens on Samsung phones... http://scforum.info/index.php?topic=8228.0

Thank you all for your warm attention for all troubling me in life ;-)
