[CLOSED] Qualcomm Snapdragon vulnarability

Post by Snappie2 » Sat, 13 Aug 2016, 13:11

Recently it was reported that all phones with the Snapdragon processor has a vulnarability to hacking and that manufacturers should provide software updates.

Does Panda Mobile protect me from all hacking including this one? According to an app provided in a link at Wired.com (Quadrooter Scanner) I am not protected.

Please advise.

QUALCOMM has already released a patch, but this patch must be distributed by the mobile manufacturers(Sony, Samsung, etc.)

We didn't have a OS vulnerability protection in mobile security. Please, contact your mobile manufacturer to know when they will distribute the patch.
