Re: Microsoft phones

Sony Xperia Z3, running Android 5.1.1 with both stagefright patches to date. Same patch level as a Google Nexus. How is that unsupported???

Pretty sure this one will also be patched in a timely manner.

Not that stagefright is anywhere near as bad as everyone with a vested interest is making out. Not a single real world occurance of any stagefright issue to date (after 8 weeks), which to me means 1 of 2 things

1. Overplayed by the press

2. ASLR is doing its job

Windows is the toxic hellstew, even apple are having problems. To date I have NEVER seen a single android device with malware, yet in the Windows world its rare to find a machine not infestated.
