Almost all #Android mobile devices available today are susceptible to hacks that can execute malicious code when they are sent a malformed text message or the user is lured to a malicious website, a security researcher reported Monday.
The problem is not with mms. The problem is in libstagefright. Any app that uses it to parse or open multimedia content of the susceptible type is vulnerable. It just happens that mms provides an attack vector that does not require user participation and is remotely initiated from anywhere.
