If you are an Android user, regardless of your hardware vendor of choice, then pay particular attention to getting the 36 vulnerability-fixing May security update installed as soon as possible. Why the concern? A high-severity vulnerability that was disclosed way back in January and perhaps unsurprisingly is being exploited in the wild, has now been fixed. It's a Linux kernel vulnerability given the name 'Dirty Pipe' by the researcher who uncovered it. Actually, us boring and nerdy security types more formally refer to it as CVE-2022-0847.

I will eventually migrate to iPhone, I am somewhat tired of Android experience and how security is treated by manufacturers.
