                Only on the latest device thats still updated but on pre-2017 = NSA says hi!. Eitherway this is just software so it can still be bypassed since its a hardware level flaw.

                  Woohoo, 10 May 2021Are older chips affected as well, my SD820 for instance?naturally

                      Since patched models are not listed, we can assume Galaxy S21 US model still not patched as of now...

                            This only affected Qualcomm chipsets? Or did it also affect any Mediatek or Exynos ones?

                                  So at the least four months is hardly impressive...
