Phone-breaking Android hole revealed [telecom]

If Android's December 2019 Security Update isn't coming to your phone, it might be time for a new device. A massive denial of service attack could "brick" Android phones up to version 10.

Google has revealed a vulnerability that can allow an attacker to control the built-in camera app on device, as well as take recordings and photos. The warning comes in the Android Security Bulletin for December 2019, which shows the usual patches to vulnerabilities and security holes the company can find in Android. It relies on an in-house cybersecurity team that performs penetration tests, as well as academics in computer science, who provide the team with potential security risks.
