At this point, it’s not clear what’s causing it, but considering it’s happening on devices from multiple brands, including Google, it’s possible that the image somehow conflicts into an underlying issue with the Android OS. It’s also possible that it was specially crafted to take advantage of an existing vulnerability.
We do not encourage anyone to try setting the image as wallpaper on personal phones. If you can’t help it, just make sure you’re okay with doing a factory reset.
We’ll keep you posted.
