Is The Sun to be believed or is it Fake News? (see how insidious this BS is that politicians and their sycophants are spreaing?)

Anyways, no more 'smart' phones for me as long as the flip ones work. Am using Brave. I hope it's not affected (No, I didn;t read the tabloid article)

Enjoy life!

Also, "billions"?

I can try digging out specific data again, but I've come across it a number of times.

No, it will not be billions. Many phones are out of support. The cheaper phones may never see a single update. So, while Google may have sent out patch - it's incumbent upon both the OEM *and* the cellular provider to provide OTA updates.

Billions of devices won't be getting fixed. The number will be much, much smaller.
