StrandHogg 2.0 – New serious Android vulnerability

Promon researchers have discovered a new elevation of privilege vulnerability in Android that allows hackers to gain access to almost all apps.

Classified ‘critical severity’ (CVE-2020-0096) by Google, the vulnerability has been named StrandHogg 2.0 by Promon due to its similarities with the infamous StrandHogg vulnerability discovered by the company in 2019.

While StrandHogg 2.0 also enables hackers to hijack nearly any app, it allows for broader attacks and is much more difficult to detect, making it, in effect, its predecessor’s ‘evil twin’.
