An Android camera flaw has been reported that could allow attackers to take pictures, record videos, or extract GPS data without requiring any explicit permissions from users by Checkmars, which is known to be available on the Google Camera and Samsung Camera apps until July 2019 and is listed as CVE-2019-2234. It is also said to have existed in a large number of apps on Google Play, thus, the scope of the Android camera flaw appears to be quite wide. A patch has also been made available to all Android vendors. It is recommended to have the latest software updates along with the most recent app versions.
