I suggest you read the Android Security 2016 Year in Review before posting any further links to blog sites whose primary goal is to post scaremongering articles for click bait. According to Adrian Ludwig there has not been one known successful StageFright exploit in the wild.

Oh I have, and I am well aware of the links I chose and their accuracy, regardless of you having a different "primary goal" in mind.

Thank you though, but I've got it from here.


FWIW, the Wii U jailbreak is via stagefright. I realize it's not android, but worth noting it has been used in the wild in some capacity.


Interesting. I didn't know the Wii U used Stagefright code. The Switch also uses Android code and was recently hacked using WebKit exploits.
