Google is Fixing the 'Cursed' Wallpaper Issue

An image has been circulating around, which appears to be a normal wallpaper, but the problem is, when an Android user set it as wallpaper, it might cause their device to crash. It also has the potential to brick devices.
Right now, users are advised to not use this wallpaper, but reportedly Google is working on a fix to prevent such issues from surfacing again. Google's rep Wu Ahan confirmed it in a group that they are working on fixing the bug.

The post suggests that Google is seeking a solution to the problem but it is not sure whether the issue will be resolved or not, or if it needs to be tested first. It is also not confirmed when the fix will be released.
The problem in the photo appears to be with the color profile coded into the photo which is different from the ones used in some displays. And not all handsets face this issue, for example, the Pixel 4 works fine with the wallpaper but it messes up Pixel 3 XL. It has also been noted that Samsung phones are the most affected ones.

Bug fixed or not, if you see the above picture anywhere, steer clear from it.
