Security Hole Visual Voice Mail App - Receiving voicemail SPAM recordings with no received call

There is a a security exploit issue with the current visual voicemail app on android!

 

Spammers are now sending recorded message directly to the visual voice mail app pre-installed on the phones w/o ever calling the phone number.

 

I've receive 2 recordings in the last week for deb consolidation, no call was received, no call was in the log. Today's recording was from a 707 number, a few days ago a different area code, same recording.

 

To be clear you cannot block this new method of spam because no call is received!

 

Is your security team working on closing this vulnerability?

Hello, @tedscott99. Thank you for stopping by. You can send a "PM" or private message a couple of different ways. If you click on the name of the person, you'll be taken to their profile.  On the right side of the screen, you should see "send this user a Private Message". Click it and you'll be taken to the PM window with their name already in the To: field. Type up what you want to say, hit send message and you're good. You can also go to your own profile by clicking on your name from the forums and then clicking the PM icon. From the PM window select "New Message" and type the user name of the   Community member in the "To" field and off you go. -Kira_M.
