Google has another try at patching Stagefright flaw
Google has released another patch for the Stagefright vulnerability after a security firm said the first one didn’t fix it.
Hundreds of millions of Android devices are vulnerable to Stagefright. A device can be compromised merely through the receipt of a specially crafted multimedia message (MMS), so an attacker needs only the victim’s phone number.
The flaw was found by Joshua Drake at mobile security firm Zimperium, which submitted a set of patches along with its big report. Google released its first patch for Stagefright last week.
