NoUSSD 1.0: Prevent Remote Wipe

I've just released NoUSSD 1.0, an Android intent that prevents malicious websites from using the recently discovered tel: URL attack and potentially remotely wipe your device.

NoUSSD will intercept all USSD codes and give you the choice to not dial them. Regular phone numbers will be sent automatically to your favorite dialer.

NoUSSD requires no special permissions and is open source. It is available for free on the Google Play Store.
