Motorola Will Update All Its Devices to Protect Them from 2013 “Stagefright

A few days ago we discussed in detail the dangers of “Stagefright, Android vulnerability more dangerous than ever seen. The main danger concerns the ease with which you can poke a device by just sending an MMS video, often automatically processed from the most common messaging app and then be able to take action alone. To address these vulnerabilities, Motorola announced its intention to update a wide range of devices, virtually all those produced by 2013 to date, including specific variants for different operators. The list currently includes:

    • Moto X Style (patch from launch)
    • Moto X Play (patch from launch)
    • Moto X (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
    • Moto X Pro

  • Moto Maxx/Turbo
  • Moto G (1st Gen, 2nd Gen, 3rd Gen)
  • Moto G with 4 g LTE (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
  • Motorcycle (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
  • Bike and with 4 g LTE (2nd Gen)
  • DROID Turbo
  • Droid Ultra Mini Maxx

Some Moto G 3rd generation have already been updated, while some will receive the update in the coming weeks. Of course the list is not Nexus 6 as updates have been maintained by Google and the Terminal is already protected. According to what stated by Motorola, the update will be submitted to operators starting next August 10 and meanwhile you may want to disable the auto-reception feature of MMS.
