An advisory from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) found that the vulnerability in a key cryptographic algorithm in Google’s Android operating system allowed hackers to break into a system, and then decrypt data on it.
The attack affected a subset of the Google Android operating systems, but affected the entire system.
The report notes that the attack had been patched, and that the Google operating system would soon be fixed.
The NIST advisory is titled “Security Vulnerability in Leaders in the Attack on Heartblee”.
In the NIST report, researchers from the security firm FireEye found that they had found an open-source vulnerability in Google that allowed an attacker to compromise an Android device and then decrypt data on the device, with the ability to decrypt data and access other devices.
The exploit was discovered on the Google Chrome Web browser, but it is also possible that other browsers could be vulnerable, as well.
The vulnerability was found in Google Chrome, but other browsers might also be vulnerable.
In addition, researchers found a separate flaw that allowed attackers to perform the same attack with the Android operating operating system, which is the most popular Android platform, but only if they also installed an exploit for the Google browser.
Google says it is aware of the issue and is working to fix it.
