Oops! BadKernel Now Affects 100 Million, Not 30 Million

We reported last week that BadKernel, a flaw in the Google Chromium mobile browser framework that spreads as users click on malicious links, affects 30 million Android users. However, from our internal reporting over the past few days, it’s clear that the actual number is much higher. Our new estimate is that BadKernel now impacts 100 million Android users. This is about 7% of the total Android user base.

Trustlook has released a new feature in its Trustlook Mobile Security  app that detects BadKernel. You are encouraged to scan your phone today and see if you are impacted.
