Earlier this week, security researchers unveiled a vulnerability that is believed to be the worst Android vulnerability yet discovered. The Stagefright bug exposes nearly 1 billion Android devices to malware. The vulnerability was found in Stagefright, an Android media library. Hackers can gain access to a device by exploiting the vulnerability and can then access contacts and other data, including photos and videos, and can access the devices microphone and camera, and thus spy on you by recording sound and taking photos.
All devices running Android versions Froyo 2.2 to Lollipop 5.1.1 are affected, which are used by approximately 95% of all Android devices.
