[dropcap]A[/dropcap] Qihoo 360 researcher named Guang Gong has demonstrated a security weakness in Chrome for Android which could compromise “virtually every version of Android” running the latest browser.
“The impressive thing about Guang’s exploit is that it was one shot; most people these days have to exploit several vulnerabilities to get privileged access and load software without interaction,” said Dragos Ruiu, organiser of the PacSec conference where Gong demonstrated the vulnerability.
Google has been alerted to the bug.
