Someone has discovered an USSD bug that with a link allows anyone to hard reset another Android smartphone. I wanted to know which ROM are affected from this bug.

Aren't only the Samsung based Roms affected? Thought that CM7/9 don't use the USSD codes.

Cm7/9 are also affected
Just try *#06#
But touchwizz roms can make a factory reset through these codes
And cm7/9 don't support this code which performs a factory reset

In RC3 from Ivendor the Glitch is already fixed.

ParanoidAndroid rc4 is vulnerable.

Edit: Installed TelStop as suggested, and all is fine.
