Re: Stagefright vulnerability found in most (all) Android phones

Source of the picture is on the Dutch Tweakers.net website:

It's a recommended read, proper in-depth analysis of the StageFright issue. Unfortunately, the site has a cookie wall (required by Dutch legislation), so it can't be translated directly from the Google Translate website. However, you can translate to English from Chrome's native Translate context menu.

When will / why won't Sony fix the vulnerability update for the Z and Z1?

Why Xperia Z is vulnerable to it.

Re: Stagefright vulnerability found in most (all) Android phones

I want Sony to follow the lead of the other major manufacturers and commit to a once a month security update!

 

I would also like an official press release regarding this issue!

 

Quite why Sony is shying away from giving their customers useful information is beyond me.  We know it is a Google library that caused the issue and therefore not their fault but they are responsible for providing transparent communication to their customers...

 

Sony, I know you were amazing in the 80s but times have changed, can you consider a modern communication strategy please!!

Is there an update for the stagefright vulnerability?

When is SONY going to send us an update for the stagefright vulnerability
in our SONY devices? Google and Samsung are going to send an update to their
phones to solve this . Anyone who has any idea about this?If you want to
make sure that your device is vulnerable you can download this app from
google play store ( Stagefright Detector ).
Thanks.

That's a great question, this is the only info http://www.xperiablog.net/2015/08/06/stagefright-vulnerability-fix-heading-to-xperia-z-series-this-m...

 

but perhaps @Rickard could comment on it.
