Re: ANDROID "STAGEFRIGHT" VULNERABILITY - SECURITY PATCH RELEASE DATE???

Okay so after installing 5.1.1 which has the patch included I tested to see if my z3 is vulnerable and it came back saying everything wad good. I checked again like 2 minutes ago after updating the SF detector app and it now says I'm "Vulnerable" again. Why? What is going on now? This doesn't make sense. It's CVE-2015-3864 everything else checks out. This is starting to make me very concerned.

Hello @zeroz3hereo

Have you tried doing a factory reset after the update to see if that will fix this issue? i tested mine 4 times within the last 6 hrs & it saying all good.

Just did the upgrade and got result from Zimperium detector that indicates it is still vulnerable to CVE-2015-3864. Looks like Google itself may not have fix the vulnerablity entirely with the patch and that CVE is tracking that vulnerablity: https://blog.exodusintel.com/2015/08/13/stagefright-mission-accomplished/

Yes this is really starting to get annoying. I actually got a random sms message sent to me the other day by an Important number and I quickly deleted it. Of course I had my sms auto download turned off it really scared me.

Hello @Anthony_C & @zeroz3hereo

It seems as Anthony said that it seems like Google it self hasn't fixed it with one patch at all. My buddy said the same as he noticed his has this issue as well.

Well then why is yours not vulnerable? If you say you have the same phone, same firmware and patch? @Meowmix

Hello @zeroz3hereo

I don't know to be honest. Maybe it's because mine is factory unlocked and it's a European model? I don't know.
