This thread aims to address the Stage fright issue for Android users and is a direct response to the unnerving things I have been reading and hearing even in tech circles. Stage fright is an Android component that is needed for Android to function. If you have a device that is not patched, or is not patchable, you can mitigate the issue but ultimately cannot fully abate the issue if you still intend to use said device for a phone/MMS tool. This tool here, can help you check to see if your device(s) are vulnerable. If you have a vulnerable device you can A) update the device with a carrier or manufacturer provided firmware, B) root the device and install a non-supported firmware that has been patched, C) decommission the device as a phone/MMS device. Stage fright issues can be mitigated by disabling the autofetch for your MMS. This is only effective until you fetch the malformed MMS. You can move to Firefox which disables stage fright operation by default, this is verified by typing 'about:config' in the address bar and searching for stage fright. Buying a brand new phone does not mean you are protected, as proof I bought two phones last week, an LG and an Acatel, both are vulnerable with no carrier or manufacturer updates ( which is fine for their purpose but makes my point). Using the broken stage fright, a device can be infected and cleaned up with no notification to the end user and little evidence behind. Mass text messages sent to random phone numbers can yield scary results. Please do your best to protect yourself.
