This one’s kind of important. What I heard was the possibility of remotely jailbreaking. This is as bad as the Stagefright flaw. Once you’re the superuser, it’s game over; everything on your device is subject to disclosure, such as contacts, call history, any logging in you do with any apps (like your bank), remote reconnaissance by turning on the mic or camera…the possiblities are quite vast.
