A glitch in the latest version of the Samsung Messages texting app that comes pre-installed on all Samsung phones is sending random pictures to users' contacts.

The issue also seems to coincide with a new version of the Samsung Messages app, which could be related to the RCS update, or not, depending. I think it has something to do with the Samsung SMS app being updated from the Galaxy Store. Go to the settings menu that handles apps' permissions and deny Samsung Messages' access to your storage.
