LAHORE (Web Desk) – A serious security flaw in Android phones has been revealed and it can make your data vulnerable to hackers as they can easily sneak into your smartphone.

The problem has been identified in software used in about 900 million Android phones, including the HTC One, New Moto X by Motorola, and Sony Xperia Z Ultra.

There is currently no evidence of anyone affected from the bug but I.T gurus are convinced that the bug exists.

Android phones embedded with Qualcomm processors are found to be the basic target of bug.

What adds misery to Android users is that they can hardly find a clue of bug presence in their smartphones. Reportedly, The results have now been handed to Qualcomm, who is believed to have started to work on a fix for the bug.

The only way to save yourself from the bug is not to install applications from third party sources apart from Google Play store.

Meanwhile, tech experts have devised an application “QuadRooter Scanner” to check whether your personal handheld device was infected from the virus or not.
