Everyone knows that Android Phones are not as secure as the iPhone, but it’s a different ball game when you claim it is — Google’s Security chief was quoted saying:
“For almost all threat models [the Pixels and iPhone] are nearly identical in terms of their platform-level capabilities.
A good one for the Pixel, right?
The problem, however, is that a group of Chinese white hat hackers managed to hack the Pixel in 60 seconds!
The hackers who won $120,000 in cash had full remote access to personal information such as messages, phone calls, contacts, and photo.
Although Google is reportedly patching the exploit, I still want to believe that Google’s security officer was referring to a different variant of the Pixel.
Meanwhile, I’m just here sipping my imaginary tea while I wait for an official statement from Google.
