HeartGold69, 08 Aug 2016Wtf has celebrity nudes have to do with iPhones?? The paparazzis are the one who takes it.Lol. No they aren't. Celebrities took nude photos and then the Apple cloud services were hacked.
ProudAndroid, 08 Aug 2016Celebrities nude pics get leaked by hackers every now and then using iPad and iPhones. I guess... moreTo be fair, it was not a vulnerability at all in iOS. It was a phishing attack as far as I remember. No OS can be protected against phishing attacks. Only through user education, any system can avoid phishing attacks.
P.S. I am an Android fan, not an apple Fanboy.

iCloud accounts being hacked to gain access to peoples personal photos (some of which may happen to be nude photos) has nothing to do with paparazzi taking opportunistic photos of said people.

Egash Josh, 08 Aug 2016I can say your argument doesn't count much! IOS is also Dorminant but it's a Secure OS!yeah ios is secure, that's why we can see celebrity nude photos leaked.. judging from your words seems you are not a smart person
This is why Android will remain a joke among the security community.
Good news for people who want to root their phones!
I donÂ’t think anyone in history has been affected by a hacker on their phone outside of celebrity iPhones and just harmless (but annoying) adware stuff.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2016Huawei P9 is not affected. Because it has kirin :D

The scanner app is pretty useless (at the moment), given that it affect all Snapdragon devices. Mediatek or Kirin or Spreadtrum users can rest easy (and don't need to check their phones). It can be used to check whether your phone had been patched but otherwise it offers no extra functions.
Actually, this is a Qualcomm problem, given that it seems every one of their Snapdragon line of processor is vulnerable to one (or all four) of the vulnerabilities. They should work with Google (Alphabet) to release a patch via the Play Store, and have all affected download and patch their system. Relying on Oems and manufacturers to release updates is not reliable, many except the big phone manufacturers release updates and patches to their phones. Not even Lenovo/Moto nor Samsung patches everyone of their phones, what more the Blu, Micromax, and Cherry Mobile of the world. That would leave millions vulnerable.
If this were an automobile, Qualcomm would have been forced to recall and fix every one of their product. Maybe an Attorney-general somewhere is reading this... :)

ProAnd Z5, 08 Aug 2016Yup. iOS isn't so secured at all. yup, iOS and wp seems secure for no one can sideload apps and can peek at their source. No sideload no problems.
Romie Lee, 08 Aug 2016OMG!!! this is so alarming!!! I think it's time to consider purchasing new iPhone and throw al... moreu are stu*pid like srrsly? you think all Os are secure? NO don't think that only technology is evolving, but hackers aswel. There will be always vulnerabilities on all stuff, just not found by hackers.
