Over at MobilePwn2Own at the PacSec conference in Tokyo, Japan, a security researcher named Guang Gong showcased an exploit he’d developed over three months which, if used, could take control of virtually any Android phone with just a Chrome link…
As a reward for finding the vulnerability, Gong won a trip to the CanSecWest security conference next year and will likely receive a bug bounty from Google. A member of Google’s security team was at the event where Gong showed off his exploit, and will take it back to headquarters to test and resolve the issues.
