Exploited Android 0day linked to notorious spyware vendor

Consisting of the 2019-10-01 and 2019-10-05 security patch levels, the Android Security Patch for October 2019 is here to fix a total of 28 security vulnerabilities discovered in various components, such as Android framework, Media framework, Android system, Linux kernel, and Qualcomm components, including closed-source ones. "The severity assessment is based on the effect that exploiting the vulnerability would possibly have on an affected device", reads the security bulletin.

"New DEVICES launching from 2019 onwards, with a USB Type-C port MUST ensure full interoperability with chargers that are compliant with the USB specifications and have the USB Type-C plug."

The most important part is, even the most recent software patches on phones with older kernels would be rendered ineffective against this vulnerability.

Google analysts have found an unpatched defenselessness all alone Android OS that influence the Pixel 1 and 2, Huawei P20, Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, and S9 and different gadgets.

Some of the mobiles listed here are very popular nowadays which makes this riskier, since it extends to the possibility of widespread surveillance being enforced, through Android. NSO representatives have denied this, however, saying that the "exploit has nothing to do with NSO".

What Is Plan Of Action?

And since it can be chained with another exploit in the Chrome browser, the attacker can also deliver the malicious application through the web browser, removing the need for physical access to the device.

"We have notified Android partners and the patch is available on the Android Common Kernel", the developers said. The latest G Suite apps to receive redesigns are Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Other initiatives such as Project Mainline for Android 10 aim at speeding up security updates in order to make Android devices safer.

The vulnerability only gets exploited once the user installs a malicious app, which also makes it less unsafe as compared to other security threats.

Google's Pixel 1, 1XL are also vulnerable, but not Pixel 3 and 3A.

In its warning, Google says 18 smartphones are affected.
