Hi everyone,

Is there anything we can do against the stagefright exploit on a stock moto G?

Using Google Messenger app for texting/MMS, not rooted, not blunlocked, full 5.1 Stock.

(Any solution OTHER than flashing CM12.1 would be appreciated )


Edit: Has Motorola said anything about it?

Disable auto-retrieve option for mms messages if there is any in your SMS/MMS app, use firefox (latest build 38), don't download any media files like mp4, etc. and wait for a patch/update.

And to answer your second question, yes they did. For more info and concerns look here:

I'm using Textra as my default SMS app and they have provided an update that fixes the bug from the app side.

OK say the official Motorola response is:

"All of our newly launched products (Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and Moto G 3rd Gen) will have the patch integrated in the software. We'll include it in the remaining planned Lollipop upgrades as soon as possible. We’re working with our partners to update phones that have already received the Lollipop upgrade.*We are still working through the feasibility to support older devices that are not getting Lollipop"

Am I correct in thinking we are in the 3rd group? The ones that have Lollipop? Therefore a true patch is coming?

Guys, install AOSP ROM from alberto, or other 5.1.1_r9 ROM'S

Here you can test if your ROM is safe: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...frightdetector
