Anonymous, 13 Aug 2020Funny it's company Q from country A. If it was company H or any other company from countr... moreTrue, but in those exploits, they are probably backdoors in the middle of all those bugs.
Literally the patriot act force any US company (including Qualcomm) to include backdoors in their consumer electronic products, and you can't just go ahead and inform everyone what and where is the backdoor nor how to access it, otherwise tons of hackers would have taken advantage of it, it can't be as simple as a "enter X code to access" as bruteforce would have destroyed it a while ago.
Nor the chip maker will inform that X o Y bug was indeed a backdoor, because as much as is a public available information that all US products do include backdoors, a lot of peoples would really be scared and loose trust and even act against that if it was officially announced.
Most peoples will look at the one talking about government backdoor with huge eyes full of incomprehension and shout "stupid complot theory" despite being literally the law.
But it is obvious that out of all found bugs, some are indeed backdoors that could only be used by knowing the extremely complex method to access the exploit or by searching literally almost every combinaison of possible exploits until something is found (as those Security research firms do) and finding one without knowing it.
So it is obviously really hard to find and to perform actions allowing to access it, so when a security bug is found, there are chances it is actually a backdoor, even more so from American companies than from any other, because of the regular spying habit of US and the patriot act.
Sorry but this is 1 week old news. Seriously

Why don't they quietly inform qualcomm, without informing al the world.
Check Point: we found a back door
NSA: WTF are you doing???
"Qualcomm has already started updating the drivers and the low-level code and should soon make it available to vendors, who will then need to push updates fixing the actual phones."
Funny it's company Q from country A. If it was company H or any other company from country C, some people including their leaders would have started screaming on top of their voices, back doors!, back doors!

Well I use android for the sole purpose of it allowing me to use fully paid Youtube, Spotify, Netflix, Duolingo without paying a monthly fee. You can save a lot by downloading something out of the play store, but yes, it does have a very slight risk.
