Playing Videos Could Allow Hackers Into Your Phone
Do you have an Android device? Are you running Android Nougat, Oreo, or Pie (versions 7x, 8x, or 9x)? Do you play games on your phone?
If you answered yes to those questions, you may have a problem. It is a bigger problem given that there are more than a billion devices currently in service running one of those operating systems.
A carefully crafted, innocent-looking video file could be embedded in a game app and could compromise your system, thanks to a critical vulnerability.
