The security lapses could lead to everything from letting an attacker lock someone out of their device, to getting control over their microphone and more — though most of the attacks that the researchers detailed required users to download some sort of malicious app before they could take advantage of the holes present in the firmware.

Their research, funded by the Department of Homeland Security, is being presented today at the Black Hat USA security conference.
