Samsung has already patched the security vulnerability in Qualcomm models on some devicesMay 10, 2021
A few days ago Check Point Research disclosed a vulnerability in Qualcomm modems that could allow attackers to listen in on your calls, read your texts and more. Today Samsung announced that it is aware of the vulnerability and that it has already patched a number of its devices.
Samsung has been rolling out patches to some of its Qualcomm-powered Galaxy devices since January (but the company doesn’t specify which ones). Most other Galaxy devices will be secure once you install the May 1 2021 patch.
The vulnerability in question is known as CVE-2020-11292. It is not mentioned in AOSP’s Android Security Bulletin for May, but it is part of Samsung’s security update for May (with an asterisk for the devices that got it earlier).
