Google's team of security researchers called Project Zero has said Android models from various manufacturers are vulnerable to flaws that are now months old.

Security researcher Jann Horn found five exploitable vulnerabilities in the ARM Mali GPU driver, and they affected all Android smartphones with a Mali GPU.

These vulnerabilities allow a bad actor to gain control of an Android smartphone, potentially stealing personal data from the devices.

Project Zero says that they reported the exploits, as they were discovered, to ARM between June and July 2022. These were fixed in July and August 2022.
