Almost all Android smartphones could be vulnerable to remote code execution due to vulnerabilities discovered in the audio decoders of Qualcomm and MediaTek chips.

These vulnerabilities were discovered by Check Point Research (CPR) and if left unpatched, an attacker could exploit them to gain remote access to a device’s camera and microphone using a malformed audio file. At the same time, an unprivileged Android app could exploit these vulnerabilities to elevate its privileges to spy on a user’s media data and listen in on their conversations.
