USSD Wipe Stopper - by Bitdefender. Once installed, your device is safe from running unauthorized USSD commands even if your Android version is vulnerable

The operating system your smartphone is running may be vulnerable to USSD commands that could wipe your entire phone.
Tapping on a link to a cleverly coded web page could order you phone to reset itself to factory settings and disintegrate all your private data with it.

Any Android phone running Phone.apk v 4.1 or lower is at risk and that's the broader base of them. Install Bitdefender's USSD Wipe Stopper to protect against such attacks. Now, once you would tap on a exploiting link, Bitdefender will intercept the wipe command and ask you to decide what to do next. You may, if unsure, dismiss the USSD command.
