Android users need to be highly cautious as menial tasks such as viewing a png file can compromise their smartphone.
A hacker can get access to a user’s smartphone by tricking them to download a png file sent to them or displayed within an application they are using. Google has patched 42 security vulnerabilities including the three critical vulnerabilities (CVE-2019-1986, CVE-2019-1987, and CVE-2019-1988) that can lead to compromises in their recent February Security Updates.
Even though Google claims none of these vulnerabilities has been exploited, it is still highly recommended to download these security patches to avoid possible issues.
