Re: KRACK Exploit of WPA 2

But we do not expect Sony investment in new major Android release, only patches for WPA2 and Bluetooth...

KRACK patch

Hi,

will the Z3 Compact be patched?

I have the lastest update, but this vulnerability is very important.

 

Thanks a lot.

Re: KRACK patch

If you can, use VPN or at least encrypted  https websites until patch is released.

@estas

 

I'll escalate this.

 

This is my opinion. If the phone it's no longer supported, or has reached EOL I doubt that it will get further updates.

Re: KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability in Z3

Thanks for getting this raised.

 

Please could someone clarify how old a phone is when 'no longer supported'?  Effectively at that stage it could become so vulnerable to security threats it is not worth using.  But hardly anyone reads these threads or would be aware of this, so millions of Android users are using vulnerable phones.

Security Updates (Blueborne, KRACK)

At the moment the Z3 Compact has at least to major security problems:

 

1. Blueborne

2. KRACK

 

I understand that a manufacturer does not want to provide updates forever and I'm fine with Android 6 ony my Z3 Compact.

 

However - the Z3 Compact is just about 3 years old and still sold. As long as a product is sold on the market there should be at least security updates. Otherwise Sony is deliberately selling insecure products or at least accepts that users will use insecure products.
