Re: filter at the telco level?

The MMSC of any mobile network usually incudes a virus scanner for the attached media.

Unless the Mobile Operator has negelected this feature the MMS service will prevent the spread of any such "Stagefright" exploits.

Note: This came to light from a research lab not from real-world evidence of exploits. Remember the Apple icloud hack?
