Palo Alto is a well-known and widely used database, but it’s also a vulnerability in Google’s Android platform.
If you use your Android phone or tablet as your primary operating system, you may be at risk of being hit by a remote code execution vulnerability, or a remote Code Execution High Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack, according to researchers at Trend Micro.
The Palo A8 chip on Google’s Nexus 5X runs Android 4.4 KitKat, the latest version of the popular mobile operating system.
The vulnerability affects Android devices running KitKat on Android phones running the Nexus 5.
Android devices running Android 4, 5, and 5T have all been impacted, the researchers wrote in a blog post.
Google has been working to patch the vulnerability, but a patch has not been released.
Google said in a statement that it is aware of the vulnerability and is working with Android manufacturers to update their devices.
