One year after the Stagefright Android flaw was first reported, its effects are widespread. More than 100 related flaws have emerged and hundreds of millions of users remain at risk.
On July 27, 2015, news broke about Stagefright, a vulnerability in Android. A year later, it's clear that Stagefright has had a major impact on the mobile security world—more so than other vulnerabilities in recent memory.
The Stagefright flaw isn't just a single issue even though a year ago it wasn't entirely clear how much of an impact the vulnerability would have. Stagefright, a reference to the libstagefright media library in Android, was found by Joshua Drake, vice president of Platform Research and Exploitation at Zimperium, to be vulnerable to exploitation.
