HACK ALERT: Android users warned by Google over hack that lets strangers see everything on your phone

The company’s Project Zero team who hunt down bugs also called out Samsung, Xiaomi and Oppo.

A series of problems were found in a piece of tech in some smartphones called Mali GPU

This means phones with Mali GPU is vulnerable to hackers, even though patches was created. Arm, the firm that makes the driver, fixed the issue early this year.

The five vulnerabilities are rated medium severity, but they could still be used by a hacker to gain full access to the system and allow “broad access” to user data.

Devices with a Snapdragon chipset are not affected.
