New Flaws in Qualcomm Chips Expose Millions of Android Devices to Hacking

A series of critical vulnerabilities have been discovered in Qualcomm chipsets that could allow hackers to compromise Android devices remotely just by sending malicious packets over-the-air with no user interaction.

Reality check:

  1. These flaws have been fixed on Android, so make sure your phone is up to date.
  2. These vulnerabilities are not being exploited in the wild.
  3. The researcher that discovered these flaws has not disclosed his research and will not until he is sure that all affected devices have been patched.
  4. The researcher only tested the flaw on Google Pixel 2/3 devices.
