    Hard to say based on that little info, but alas:

    The good news is that this vulnerability -- categorized as a privilege escalation issue -- can't be exploited remotely. Attackers need local access, meaning they need to plant malicious code on the device beforehand.

    This zero-day can't be used to break into users' phones, but it can be used to make hacks much worse, by allowing attackers to take full control of a device, post the initial infection.
    You planning on handing your phone over to anyone shady? If not, I wouldn't exactly worry about it.
