Google is warning owners of some popular Android devices to keep a close eye on their gear following the release of an exploit for an unpatched flaw.
A post from the Chocolate Factory's in-house Project Zero crew outlines the flaw, a use-after-free bug in the Android Binder driver that could be exploited by a local app to elevate privileges.
As the vulnerability must be exploited locally, users and admins will go a long way towards protecting themselves by making sure they do not download any apps from untrusted sources and keep their systems updated to block against other flaws that could be chained with this bug to create remote attacks.
