There's a new exploit for Broadcom wifi (specifically BCM43xx series) that is in around a BILLION smart phones.  Android and iOS both use Broadcom for wifi.  Not only does this exploit let an attacker within broadcast range of a device execute unsigned code, but the device can be made to carry the malware and infect others within range.  http://hackaday.com/2017/07/29/broadpwn-all-your-mobiles-are-belong-to-us/

When this goes live, it's going to be huge.  Glad I've still got my iPhone 4s which isn't on the list:
    * Samsung Galaxy from S3 through S8, inclusive
    * All Samsung Notes3. Nexus 5, 6, 6X and 6P
    * All iPhones after iPhone 5
