Sprint is releasing a mass rollout for the Stagefright security bug to a number of devices from Samsung and Nexus 5 & Nexus 6. The Stagefright fix first appeared on the Sprint Note 4 5.1.1 OTA update that released only a couple of days ago.

For the unknown, Stagefright vulnerability allows an attacker to send media files through MMS to any Android device and target Android’s media playback engine, Stagefright, to steal important data, as well as hijacking the device’s microphone and camera.

The vulnerability doesn’t even require you to open the MMS file, an attacker can compromise your device without you even knowing about it. This is really a serious security bug that all Android users should be worried about.

Thankfully, Google released a patch for the Stagefright vulnerability within 48 hours of its discovery and to Sprint and Samsung for being one of the first companies to release a patch for the security bug.
