The security update for a large number of Android phones is urgent

Many Android phones out there are vulnerable to a newly discovered hack. If you have an Android, updating your software is a must.

An IT security company wrote on its blog that it has discovered a serious problem in Android chips affecting about two-thirds of the phones sold last year.

If left unattended, it means hackers can gain remote access to your private data.

CheckPoint warned the two largest chipset manufacturers about the problem. According to the security company’s website, the problem has been fixed. But the problem is not over for you.

Go into settings and check for a software update. If you do not, the villains may fall into a malicious audio file that you may open and damage your phone.

This is a bit inside baseball, but some of you might want more information. Apple has updated the same audio encoding format, but the open source version has not been fixed since 2011, according to experts.
