Fortunately, the process of exploitation require the arrival of material to the device, so your device is safe as long as the attacker can’t reach him personally.
Is the Tegra X1 is one of the processors, portable a subsidiary of NVIDIA Nvidia, where he works on running devices like the Nintendo Switch and Google Pixel C and the Nvidia Shield, and so it is not strange to discover the weaknesses within them, which is what actually happened, since in accordance with the information it has been to find a new loophole called the “Fusée Gelée”.
This discovery was made by Catherine Timken Katherine Temkin in collaboration with the team result ReSwitched porous, has released details about the flaw in security that allows arbitrary code execution unauthenticated within the devices which are used to slice Tegra, including the Switch to Nintendo that the company has shipped nearly 15 million devices worldwide
If you want you can read all the Details Concerning the holes through the source link: Click here, but to summarize, the gap Fusée Gelée benefit from a flaw in the USB mode recovery your processor Tegra X1, which was released by T186 / X2, since you can copy the code to package local applications by sending an incorrect command during the conduct of verification in the USB of your bootROM, which allows an attacker to run arbitrary code on the device.
Due to the error exists in the ROM bootloader, it can be corrected without a hardware revision in the source, this means that all devices that use the chip Tegra vulnerable to attack, and will not be able any software update to correct it. And that the organs of the Pixel C and the Nvidia Shield uses the same processor, it is very likely that the impact of these vulnerabilities on these devices also, and fortunately, the process of exploitation require the arrival of material to the device, so your device is safe as long as the attacker can’t reach him personally.
