1bn Android Devices Affected by Stagefright 2.0

Over 1bn Android mobile devices are recognized as affected by a new security bug named Stagefright 2.0. This is the follow-up to the Stagefright vulnerability, which allowed intruders to obtain access to an Android phone by sending it an MMS message. The new, 2.0 version of the security vulnerability exploits two holes in Android and allows a hacker to take over a device using a media file.

According to security experts, previewing an infected song or video file online could enable the hacker to obtain access to an affected mobile device and run remote code. Theoretically, this may provide them full access to a device and install other malware or just harvest sensitive data for use in identity theft. Experts also note that the flaw affects even smartphones that used to have the Stagefright 1.0 patched, including Google’s Nexus and Samsung’s Galaxy S6.

Technically, the security holes originate from the media processing systems of the OS that can be breached, thus opening access to the rest of the device through specially crafted song or video. While Stagefright 1.0 needed a mobile number to be able to send the text message to a target device, 2.0 needs nothing to get into the phone, affecting a much wider audience (estimated as more than 1bn Android devices).

Android developers were notified of the vulnerability in the middle of August. Google acknowledged the flaws and confirmed that they were rated as a critical severity because they could remotely execute code as the privileged mediaserver service, having access to audio and video streams along with privileges that 3rd party apps normally can’t access.

Google is expected to patch the vulnerability in its October security update for Nexus smartphones. As it usually happens to Android, patches for other models will depend on their manufacturers and mobile carriers. Recently, largest phone manufacturers have pledged to roll out monthly security updates for the devices.

In the meantime, security experts report no cases of Stagefright 2.0 being exploited in the wild. Nevertheless, they recommend all Android users to use mobile browser to preview unsolicited audio and video files with caution until a patch is applied. It is believed that too often people fail to understand their mobile devices are no less vulnerable than their desktops.

Embolism avatar@1 it must be said that if you open random MMS from an unknown source you are going to get malware and should expect it whatever platform you are on so add to your list of systems not to use Microsoft,Apple and Samsung since they have all without any doubt got vulnerabilities all have been hacked and all are monitoring everything you do and everywhere you go already whether you like it ,want it or not.in the world today very few high end secure devices are in play like Blackphone (which is an android) and even these are not 100% invulnerable so if you want to recommend people to stop using Android devices which I am sure would please the Microshite empire please remember that they themselves started to monitor all their users via gps without the users consent up to O/S 5.5 and you could not stop them doing so without crashing the whole phone as it could not be simply turned off (they claim they do not do this anymore publicly ,but we know they still do it through the O/S)
If you want a secure messaging service then you need to fall back ON SNAIL MAIL since all electronic messaging is monitored globally on every device with very few exceptions malware aside and generally by the NSA,Microsoft and the other untrustworthy manufacturers like Apple,recommending people not to use an O/S due to some bit of malware they may pick up is banal since all of their competitors already spy on you to begin with.

No avatar@Embolism, BlackPhone2 is not secure in the slightest!the original got brought down and recently the BP2 got hacked, the only secure platform (you failed to mention) is BlackBerry's BB10, why do you think all the military, governments, medical and financial busineses use it? At least now with BlackBerry teaming up with Google and releasing the Priv next month Android looks to become a little more secure.
