Check if your phone is vulnerable.Open your browser and navigate to: http:goo.glsRHFC or scan the barcode at the header of the page.2. If your phone is vulnerable you will see your IMEI number displayed.This means that service MMI commands can be executed on your phone, when you visit a malicious web page. The MMI commands are service commands, and if you see the IMEI it doesn39;t mean that your phone is vulnerable to the Samsungs data wipe vulnerability.
