MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Researchers say more than 600 million Samsung Galaxy phones could be hacked.

The phone's keyboard software causes the flaw allowing hackers to spy on what you're doing with your phone.

Samsung says it will patch the issue and the update will be available in a few days.

It is still unclear if all devices will receive the fix.

Experts suggest if you do own a Galaxy, avoid unsecured WiFi and call your cell phone carrier to fix the problem quickly.
