Samsung has responded to the recent criticism surrounding its Knox security service for its smartphones, and mentions that it has verified the cyber-attack problem and has intercepted the data.

Last month, a big vulnerability was discovered in Samsung’s native security service, Knox, by cyber-security researchers in Ben Gurion University in Israel. The popular Korean tech giant has also mentioned some tips and tricks on how users can avoid compromising important data on their Knox-enabled handsets. The tips will be also sent as a message to the Knox users.

Samsung also gave a detailed description of the procedures to be followed to further protect Knox-enabled devices from MitM attacks. KNOX offers additional protections against MitM attacks, namely, Mobile Device Management (MDM), per-app VPN, and FIPS 140-2.
