android

A serious Android security flaw has been uncovered which affects devices running Android version 2.2 or later.

From the web:

“A full 95 percent of all Android devices — that’s about 950 million smartphones, tablets and other mobile gadgets — are at risk from one of ‘the worst Android vulnerabilities discovered to date,’ according to enterprise mobile security firm Zimperium. The security flaw, enabled by the Android operating system’s Stagefright media library, could allow hackers to access devices without users ever realizing that they’ve been compromised.”

Anyone using an Android device should apply the most recent patches.
