In light of the ‘Stagefright’ Exploit that is currently making a splash in the realm of mobile device news, Google has recently announced that it will be implementing monthly updates for certain generation Nexus devices.
More details about the regular monthly updates for Google Nexus devices can be found in the link below.
We all know nothing is bulletproof. Somewhere, someone will always want to break in and steal your stuff. Especially now, we carry around basically a digital ID card, our (smart)phones. We store anything and everything on it. We can think we’re safe, but, sadly, we’re just really fooling ourselves.
This dude found this bug found in pretty much all version of Android, and it can be triggered via SMS. Nexus users will most probably get the patch the soonest. Lollipop users are also the safest, but not 100% safe.
A patch will be great if it can be sent out swiftly, but with different brands, skins, carriers, it’s tough. This is where, and I hate to admit it, Apple has a leg up on Google. Anyway, don’t read any unknown text messages with video attachments. Even if it’s from someone you know.
