Popular Android phones have a big bug

Google security teams, called Project Zero, have found a security hole in certain Android devices.

Hackers can exploit the kernel errors of the device (basic software that runs under the "operating system itself"), as well as with the Android browser. This problem has been reported in Samsung Galaxy S7, S8 and S9, Huawei P20 and Pixel 2 devices.

Interestingly, Google suspects that this omission is mostly used by Israeli company NSO Group, which normally manufactures software and monitoring devices for smartphones, and sells them to governments and intelligence agencies around the world.
