A Samsung glitch could be sending your photos to random contacts. Yep, all of them.

You might want to sit down for this one.

Especially if you have a Samsung phone… and your boss’s phone number.

You see, a glitch in some Samsung phones has meant the “smart phones” are sending people’s photos to everyone in their contact list.

So, your boss could soon be seeing photographic evidence of that time you got drunk and thought it would be hilarious to steal a traffic cone. And that other time you got dressed up as a minion for no particular reason ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Oh… and they could also be seeing your nudes.

According to News.com.au, the Samsung bug is affecting Samsung’s newest smartphones, the Galaxy S9+ and S9, as well as the Note 8, which was released in 2017.

News of the Samsung glitch first began emerging earlier this week on Reddit threads and Samsung help forums.

One man claimed the Samsung bug led to at least 50 images from his phone being sent to his girlfriend as he slept.

The phone showed no record of the transfer.

A spokeswoman for the company confirmed with News.com.au, that they’re looking into the Galaxy glitch.

“We are aware of the reports regarding this matter and our technical teams are looking into it,” she said.

“We are not aware of any customers in Australia that have experienced this issue.”

In the forums, users have recommended revoking Samsung Messages’ permission to access media on your phone.

We’d also recommend deleting your nudes and/or throwing your phone into the nearest ocean.
