    Major Instagram App Bug Could’ve Given Hackers Remote Access to Your Phone

    If a buffer overflow can break out of the sandbox the app is running in, wouldn’t that be a major security flaw in the operating system and not just in the Instagram app?

    Article: “Heap overflow could allow hackers to take over your phone”

    Also Article: “Even worse, the exploit can be used to crash a user’s Instagram app and render it inaccessible unless it’s removed and reinstalled all over again on the device.”

    Glad to see they’ve got their priorities right

    >This [flaw] turns the device into a tool for spying on targeted users without their knowledge
