We’re looking at adding protection against USSD vulnerabilities to ESET Mobile Security. The ESET USSD Control app was released as a free standalone app due to the widespread attention this threat received. Some Android devices do not have access to Google Play, so ESET is also making the app available for download directly on their web site at http://www.eset.com/tools/ussdtest/esetussd.apk.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

The article also describes very well what the threat is any why users should not allow the code to run. The only suggestion I would make is integrating this bit of information into the UI so that users can understand what they are blocking without having to do any external research. Otherwise, an incredibly useful product!

I really don’t want to be managing or installing multiple apps for each type of attack.
