Of course, this exploit is a problem, and this is why many companies have decided to respond by updating their devices. These companies include Apple (in a beta), Microsoft and Lineage OS. Charged features a full list of all the other companies that have taken action against the issue.
Even though many people were scared for their cybersecurity its good to see that many companies have responded almost instantly. Microsoft, for example, released a patch only hours after the exploit became public.
Tips to anyone scared for their cybersecurity:
• Download any security updates for your devices as soon as possible.
• Always use a VPN and make sure your connections are safe. For added security, you could use the Google Chrome plugin HTTPS everywhere.
• Use 4G on your mobile devices and use LAN cables when possible.
