  • Fear Surrounding Android's Stagefright - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    this is that most users don t even have to open the message to be hacked Once the attacker sends the message and the intended person receives it the user has no control over what personal information pictures data camera microphone is being accessed In some cases attackers have been able to delete all traces of an attack to make the user completely unaware that they were hacked The bugs were reportedly fixed with patches by Zimperium zLabs the leader in mobile threat protection but they have not been implemented across the board This is mainly due to Google s Android ecosystem which relies on partnering phone manufacturers to deliver the patches to users through software updates This means that some of the biggest names in the industry are lagging behind Samsung HTC and LG to name a few and it may be weeks before the new updates trickle down Unfortunately software updates are no longer eligible for users who have older Android devices and access to the patch is not available at all if users have handsets from makers that aren t official partners with Google Zimperium has stated that this and other vulnerabilities targeting media and system privileges
