Kirin 960, 970If you’re unsure what CPU you have in your phone then head to GSMArena and do a search on your phone model for the processor information. If you ARE affected then what can you do? Well, firstly, don’t panic – it’s extremely difficult to get the vulnerability working on Android (according to Google). Secondly, wait for manufacturers to start pushing out update to their devices to fix the issue. Every so often just check for updates on your phone and see if anything new has become available. What if my device is old? Well sadly you are likely to be out of luck and your phone will always be vulnerable. Some manufacturers stop updating their devices after a few years, or worse sooner. All you can do if be vigilant and don’t install any dodgy APKs from unknown sources. If you have any questions please let me know down below.
