New security vulnerability puts 900 million Android devices at risk, researchers warn

Security firm Check Point has identified vulnerabilities affecting 900 million smartphones and tablets that use chipsets from component maker Qualcomm.

Check Point disclosed the vulnerabilities Sunday at the DEF CON 24 hacking conference in Las Vegas. The four vulnerabilities, dubbed “QuadRooter” by Check Point, affect Android devices using chipsets from component maker Qualcomm. Chipsets are collections of components or circuits that handle data flow within a device.

If any one of the vulnerabilities is exploited, an attacker could gain access to the device, explained Check Point, in a blog post. “Any Android device using these chipsets is at risk,” it added.

Roll out the new shit and play captain hindsight. Hire these hackers to be your tech team. Nah, it is a conspiracy.

I guess you would have to download an app that exploits  the security holes.

"QuadRooter actually needs to run code locally on your device. In order to be affected by QuadRooter, you would need to install a rogue app designed to take advantage of the flaws in Qualcomm’s code. The flaws allow an app to escalate its privileges and gain control of the phone. It’s essentially an in-place root exploit. These apps could then gain access to all the personal information stored on your device."

Be careful what you download from the app store.

I didn't do the flashlight app.  Have a tiny led thing on my keychain that is bright as all get out.
Edit: just found out the phone has a built in flashlight setting. 2 years and never even cared to look. Learn something new every day.
