Hackers used the Rowhammer attack to quickly hack into Android devices

Hackers used the Rowhammer attack to quickly hack into Android devices

Hackers have learned to quickly crack Android devices with the famous Rowhammer attack. It turned out that not only computers running Windows and Linux are defenseless, but smartphones running on the most popular operating system.

The method of attack Rowhammer clearly demonstrated the imperfection of the operating systems Windows and Linux and allowed hackers in a very short time to get full access to important data. Developers from the research team VUSec decided to test how the standard Android-smartphone behaves in the case of applying a similar algorithm. It turned out that he too can not resist such an attack and very quickly control over the system goes under the control of hackers.

Experts VUSec noted that the vulnerability is observed only in older versions of Android-devices and to conduct similar fraud with a more modern device will not work. Despite this, they do not rule out that in the future there will be a more perfect program code based on Rowhammer for hacking even the most advanced gadgets.
