Google Uncovers 18 Severe Security Vulnerabilities in Samsung Exynos Chips

Several severe security vulnerabilities were uncovered in Samsung’s Exynos chips by Google this week. The vulnerabilities range from moderate to severe, and affect a variety of devices including Samsung’s Galaxy line of phones.

One of the most serious vulnerabilities is a flaw that could allow remote attackers to execute code on affected devices. This could allow an attacker to take control of a device simply by sending a malicious text message.

Other vulnerabilities include a flaw that could allow an attacker to bypass the lock screen on an affected device, and a flaw that could allow an attacker to gain access to data stored on the device.

Samsung has already patched most of the vulnerabilities, but some remain unpatched. Google has advised users of affected devices to disable features such as VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling until patches are available.

These vulnerabilities highlight the importance of security updates, and the need to keep your devices up to date.
