Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in some newer Android devices which could allow internet-to-baseband remote code execution. (Someone can hack your phone if they know your phone number.)

What to Do

If you have a newer Google Pixel phone, you should update it.

If there's not a security update for your Pixel yet (6, 6 Pro, 6a) or you have a newer Samsung phone, you should disable Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE.

Which Devices?

Google compiled a list of likely affected products:

  • Samsung Galaxy phones including those in the S22, M33, M13, M12, A71, A53, A33, A21, A13, A12, and A04 series
  • Vivo phones including those in the S16, S15, S6, X70, X60, and X30 series
  • Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 and 7 Pro
  • Any wearables that use the Exynos W920 chipset
  • Any vehicles that use the Exynos Auto T5123 chipset

These are the affected chips:

  • Exynos Modem 5123
  • Exynos Modem 5300
  • Exynos 980
  • Exynos 1080
  • Exynos Auto T5123

@trash_cat thanks for the heads-up! received an automated update today but unsure from the patch notes as to whether it fixed this vuln, so disabling those features
