It's dangerous experts tell us, this is not a battle it's a war, a software hack so malicious if you own a Samsung Galaxy someone may be watching you right now.

Chances are your Samsung device has a security glitch on it.

"It allows a hacker to take complete control of your phone. And that means they can delete all your pictures, photos, look at you, and that's scary, someone could be looking at your through your camera," says IT expert Mit Patel.

It's basically a bug in the software that is pre-installed on 600 million devices, and you can't do a thing about it until Samsung releases a software update.
