Only one smartphone brand gets protection from the latest Android jailbreak

Research firm Check Point recently revealed that it found critical vulnerabilities in Qualcomm chips that affect millions of Android smartphones. As it turned out, only one brand has been protected from vulnerabilities so far – Pixel.

Google reported last week that four vulnerabilities were actually exploited by hackers. Two of the vulnerabilities found affected the Snapdragon 768G and Snapdragon 888 processors. Two other vulnerabilities affect the Arm Mali GPU driver. They allow hackers to take full control of the device.

Google Pixel users should already be able to install a patch to help defend against potential attacks. Everyone else will have to wait. Some experts believe that these four vulnerabilities can only be exploited by state-sponsored hackers.
