The reports stated that the issue lies in the Unisoc SoC’s baseband processor specifically the network modem crucial to its network connectivity. This could theoretically be exploited by attackers to send a corrupt network packet and disable or disrupt your device’s network connectivity.

Moreover, Check Point Research discovered this network issue after reverse-engineering the LTE protocol stack implementation on a Unisoc T700 chipset in a Motorola G20 phone with a January 2022 security patch.

After discovering this, the cyber security firm informed Unisoc about its findings pushing the manufacturer to mark this issue as critical and immediately creating a fix that Google has also confirmed will be part of the new Android Security Bulletin.

As of now, users can only wait as there has been no official statement regarding the security patch’s deployment schedule.
