Sony has started rolling out an update which patches Android's Stagefright vulnerability in the recently launched Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact smartphones in addition to other bug fixes.
A new report claims that a new set of vulnerabilities, dubbed Stagefright 2.0 in the Android OS may be affecting more than a billion users and every device is susceptible to malicious attacks.
Sony is rolling out new firmware (build 14.6.A.0.368) for some Xperia handsets - and unlike a similar update it pushed out last week, this one includes a fix for the Android Stagefright vulnerability.
Android 5.1 will begin rolling out to the HTC One M9 on Verizon later today, and in addition to new roaming support for LTE Bands 3 and 7, it also brings a fix for the Stagefright vulnerability.
OnePlus has issued an update for its Oxygen OS that will patch the much publicized 'Stagefright" vulnerability. The update is available as a direct download from OnePlus.
Motorola has acknowledged that its devices are also affected by the Stagefright vulnerability and has revealed the list of past and upcoming devices that will be patched against it.
After Google committed to providing monthly security updates for Nexus devices, Samsung and LG have now said that they will do the same, releasing regular patches for their Android phones and tablets.
The vulnerability lets an attacker take control of any device running Android 2.2 onwards using multimedia content - but while Google has had a patch since April, 95% of devices remain unprotected.
