    Interesting, but it seems that manual intervention is required to do the steps needed. I don't think an app installed from the store can do these steps on it's own.

    I believe any malicious exploit would be eliminated by MS with a firmware update.

    XDA has a pretty extensive thread about this.
    Looks no one is getting anywhere with it however.

    We have a second thread discussing this same issue here:

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...-think-do.html

    Normally I'd leave this thread open as it was created first, but the other thread has accumulated more information, so I've decided to close this one instead. Sorry to the OP for not catching the second thread earlier.
