Sprint is one of the first set of carriers to send out the critical “Stagefright vulnerability fix” for the Note 4. Stagefright is a key vulnerability that reportedly impacts 950 million Android devices across the globe.
Google, Samsung and LG have confirmed monthly security patches to fix such issues. Google already has sent out a fix to bump off the vulnerability specific to Nexus devices. Many non-stock Android devices have not received the fix yet, notes BGR. There is an app to verify if an Android handset is vulnerable to Stagefright. The Stagefright Detector app can be downloaded from the Google Play store for free that will verify if the device is susceptible to attack.
