So, what exactly is the RAMpage attack?

RAMpage is a line hammer attack targeting the hardware of Android Devices running on Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich or higher. If you're wondering exactly what a line hammer attack is, the line can be defined as an attack targeting the hammer side effect. The row hammer is a side effect that is responsible for causing the memory cells to leak into loads. This side effect relates to dynamic random access memory. This started in 2012, when Google added a new item to the Android core of ION. It is responsible for distributing memory to different services and applications. RAMpage attacks target these IONs. These attacks cause the memory to change between applications and services by electrically interfering with each other, endangering the conditions of these IONs. Millions of Android devices are potentially vulnerable to this attack.
