Glitch in Samsung Messages App Sends Photos to Random Contacts

This could be bad

Going by the reports, the bug appears to be originating from Samsung Messages, the Samsung Galaxy line's default messaging app, that causes it to send photos or even the entire gallery to a user's contacts via SMS.

The affected devices appear to be exclusive to the most recent Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, and it's unclear whether other models are affected. The lack of any evidence on the affected phone may be the scariest part - this could be happening much more than we think because the recipient is someone the involuntary sender doesn't speak to often.

Samsung acknowledged an inquiry from Gizmodo that it was aware of the bug and that it is now working on a fix. These text messages also included photos stored in their respective devices, reports Gizmodo.
