How it works
When you click on a web link or scan a QR code, Android will open a dialog with a list of apps that you can choose from to complete the action. Select ‘Avira USSD Exploit Blocker’ and set it as the default.
Protecting your phone from the USSD Android exploit is that simple!
What is a USSD code anyway?
USSD codes are keypad commands that can be used to access a variety of phone functions, from checking minutes to accessing expert controls. USSD commands typically contain a mixture of numbers, stars and pound signs.
IMPORTANT - You MUST restart your phone after installing or updating the app. Also, please launch and configure the app to start blocking messages.
This is a free app and has no ads.
This app selectively blocks balance update messages that carriers send after each call, typically on prepaid plans. These balance update messages show as annoying popups after end of each call.
Technically, these balance update messages are USSD messages, and cannot be filtered by SMS blockers. Hence, this app specializes in blocking USSD messages.
You may choose to block messages that contain a specific string (substring match), or a list of keywords (comma separated keyword list), or advanced users can specify regular expressions that when matched trigger blocking.
You can also choose to show the balance update message once per day (or week/month). This will cause the first balance update message to show up, and all other messages will be blocked for the rest of the day.
Last 25 messages are saved in the message log, along with indication if the message was blocked or allowed.

If you encounter an issue, please make sure you have restarted the phone after installation. Please email me if that does not resolve the issue.
Technical users - this app actually doesn't need READ_PHONE_STATE permission. I've added it so that Android doesn't auto update this app from 1.0 to 1.2, as that requires a restart.
Protect yourself from data loss through remote wipe or other harmful actions of USSD hacks.
In order to protect your device from remote wipe and other USSD attacks, make sure that ESET USSD Control is set as the default dialer:
1. Install ESET USSD Control on your device.
2. Use your Android phone to visit our test page: http://www.eset.com/tools/ussdtest (note that this only contains a checker and will not make changes to your phone).
3. When prompted to complete action, check "Always perform this action" and select ESET USSD Control.
For step by step installation please follow our Knowledge Base http://kb.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN3139
Please note that once installed, the app runs invisible in the background, with no icon on the home screen. ESET USSD Control only interacts with the user when an attempt to run a harmful USSD code is detected. To make sure the app is installed correctly, go to Android Settings > Applications and look for ESET USSD Control.
What is USSD?
The purpose of USSD codes is that telecom operators can provide distance support for phone devices. An example of such code is one that displays IMEI number (*#06#), but there are also USSD commands that can wipe all data and restore a phone to factory settings.
How can USSD attack be launched?
Protection against USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) attacks is an essential security layer for Android devices, since these attacks can be easily initiated by all means that lead to visiting a website containing malicious USSD command such as SMS, QR code, or simply by tapping a fraudulent link in the browser.
How does ESET USSD Control protect you?
By checking for malicious codes before they are executed, ESET USSD Control makes sure that all data on your Android phone stay safe. The app displays a warning window each time a malicious USSD code is found, blocking the execution of the potentially harmful command.
** Xposed framework is required http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1574401 **
Ussd blocker will block the annoying USSD balance update popups that come up on your phone, each time you make a call or change data connectivity. This app is like a silent inbox for all your USSD popup messages.
Two main reasons to use this app:
- No usage popups especially when you don't have the time to read them, e.g after ending a call or unlocking your phone.
- USSD messages are lost once you dismiss them. So, if you are on a prepaid connection and want to know when and how you lost your balance, you can get it from your history of usage update messages in this app.
- If you are rooted, install Xposed framework from here http://dl.xposed.info/latest.apk and reboot your device.
- After installing the app, enable the Ussd Blocker Xposed module and reboot
XDA support thread:
The operating system your smartphone is running may be vulnerable to USSD commands that could wipe your entire phone.
Tapping on a link to a cleverly coded web page could order you phone to reset itself to factory settings and disintegrate all your private data with it.
Any Android phone running Phone.apk v 4.1 or lower is at risk and that's the broader base of them. Install Bitdefender's USSD Wipe Stopper to protect against such attacks. Now, once you would tap on a exploiting link, Bitdefender will intercept the wipe command and ask you to decide what to do next. You may, if unsure, dismiss the USSD command.

The rights of root are necessary for the program for processing of USSD answers to Android 4.2.2 above. At their existence use the USSD Mode 5.
In of Pro - version additional:
- Opportunity for each sim card to appoint some USSD requests and for each inquiry to appoint some indicators for parsing of various groups of figures in the answer.
- Processing of answers from SMS
- Various widgets (1x1, 2x1, 3x1, 4x1) are available, for each widget on a desktop it is possible to set the settings (transparency, a font size, an icon, etc.)
- Possibility of viewing, editing, removal, unloading in the file of the magazine of the program for the chosen period, viewing of the detailed and grouped statistics
- Chart of balance and diagram of expenses.
-Possibility of an archiving and restoration of base and settings is added
For each sim card it is necessary to appoint the USSD request code, to specify number of numerical group for answer processing. (Let's say the answer to the USSD request looks like: "Balans:43,88 dollars. You look animated films: * 728*1# (11,86 dollars/month)". Here 4 numerical groups: 43,88; 728; 1; 11,86 . Us the first interests. )
It is possible to adjust the schedule of a parcel of USSD requests:
After incoming and outgoing calls and SMS, after the end of Internet connection, at the appointed time.
It is possible to establish a indication of a negative number (Negative Prefix). Let's say the answer to the USSD request looks like: "Debt of 2.80 dollars. " If to establish value of Negative Prefix equal "Debt", the program will understand that it is necessary to replace "Debt" in the answer with a minus. By default a sign of a negative number - a symbol "-".
The program needs to be installed in the main memory of the smartphone.
For work of the program it is necessary to remove or freeze other programs working with USSD requests (USSD checker, etc.). After installation single reset is required.
The program was tested on the MTK(6516, 6575, 6577, 6589 platforms), also works at some smartphones on Qualcomm and Samsung Duos.
The USSD Mode 0 is suitable for the majority of phones except MTK 6573 and Samsung Duos.The USSD Mode 1 is suitable for the majority of phones on MTK 6573.
The USSD Mode 2 mode has to work at Samsung Duos except S7562. On Samsung S7562 choose the Mode 0 mode. On HTC Desire SV and HTC Desire V use Mode 3.
USSD Mode 4 - a mode of a "silent" USSD request for smartphones on MTK (root can be demanded).
USSD Mode 5 (the rights of root are necessary) - a mode of a "silent" USSD request, is suitable for all smartphones. The mode is compatible to Android 4.2.2.
If when using Mode 5 after reboot the network isn't restored, try to change a submode. On the Chinese DualSim on Qualcomm (ZTE 880, Huawei 8825, etc.) and Samsung S7562 try to change the "Mode of queries" control. If in Mode 5 there is no balance updating (on one or both sim cards), try to increase a "Wite after boot" and change a submode. After submode and Wite after boot change it is necessary to reboot the smartphone (not fast reboot ).
Before removal of USSDDualWidget don't forget to remove a daw in Settings of phone - Security - Select device administrators.
