If you live in Panama and typically use WiFi at public places, you should be even more concerned. The fix will require a ROM fix for all WiFI routers and many public places in Panama will never update their routers.

All hardware vendors should be providing fixes soon. This is probably the most serious security hole that has been found to date.

If you have a home router providing Wifi, then you will need to watch your router manufacturer for a ROM update. Google should be providing a software fix for its OS soon.

  1. Yes. I am sure that Google will have patches for the Pixel soon too. That is the reason I don’t buy other brands of Android. I don’t want to wait for patches.

  2. My wife and I are currently in California and will be returning to Panama in Mid-March next year/2018…Is there anything we can do prior to our return to preclude this anomalous condition from contaminating our phones ??? GALAXY S-5 International version unlocked ????? TKS IN ADVANCE

  3. Ron, Google has said their fix will come out in the November 6 patch release. When Samsung puts their fix out is another question. My Google Pixel will get it the day Google releases it.
