my xperia xz is in the July version and is also vulnerable.
but that does not matter to Sony, they already took our money.
they want us to buy the last model, but the deception does not work forever, the next phone I promise will not be Sony.
and do not expect a solution, either in your local provider or in this forum. No one knows who depends on this inattention.

With this new media frenzy about someone finally revealing/listening to the many warnings about Bluetooth security issues, I am wondering if big old ignorant Sony will finally get their butt in gear and throw some attention in this device's direction after more than a year's silence...?!
Bluetooth is seriously flawed and manufacturers must deliver patch. That's you, Sony Mobile Inc.
Maybe you could see fit to prepare a long overdue Android 7 or 8 upgrade, but I fear you might be lacking the expertise...

There is a security vulnerability when using Bluetooth with a wide range of devices. Google have released a security patch for Android in their September update, but it is up to manufacturers to modify and release versions specific to their devices.
Looking at threads for other Sony phones, it doesn't look like Sony are necessarily planning to do this. I have emailed support to clarify. Perhaps if lots of us do this, they may take notice?

I agree, this is an extremely serious issue. Until it is fixed all the bluetooth accessories are pretty much useless. I can't imagine Sony will leave Z5 users like this.

Russian official support chat promised to release security updates for all models with android 6, but i dont know how much they are competent.

I don't understand Sony policy. They, as the first cell phone vendor, annonced that they'll update many Xperia models to Android 8.0. Now I read that they don't deploy security updates.
I don't understand. Security patch looks to be more easy to deploy than whole operating system

is unjustifiable the attitude of sony, in a single model of cell phone have up to five different versions of software, then we talk about the fragmentation of android, THE BLAME IS THE MANUFACTURER NOT GOOGLE. a low-range galaxy is more updated than a high-end Sony (hangs the photos that show in another post) and worst of all is that there are no responsible, no answers, no explanation and as a consequence there is no solution for the client,
