[Facepalm] Samsung forgets to renew domain, potentially putting millions of customers at risk of being hacked
Sometimes inaction can be just as dangerous as making a wrong move. That seems to be the case for Samsung, as it appears simply letting a domain expire could have left millions of its customers vulnerable to hackers. Luckily, a security researcher named João Gouveia noticed the potential problem and snapped up the domain before anyone with more nefarious intentions was able to grab it.
The domain in question is ssuggest.com, which relates to an app Samsung discontinued back in 2014.
