Once in July discovered security flaw that allowed hackers is that on someone else’s Android devices relatively easily inserted dangerous malware, the company Imperium Labs has now found a new Stagefright bug that allows hackers to infect other people similarly Android phones and tablets.

As reported Motherboard, a newly discovered bug allows hackers Stagefright to break into other people’s phones so that users will be tricked to websites containing infected mp3 or mp4 file, whose launch of the device is automatically infected with malware. Also, users of its devices may endanger the opening (or preview) infected MP3 and MP4 files to any media player that uses the vulnerable Android Stagefright tools.

Not only that – if by chance a malicious hacker uses the same WiFi network as the user, will be able to infect his condition and without the user to run an infected file, although Imperium did not publish detailed technical specifications of the manner in which it is possible to perform.

Joshua Drake of Imperium said this omission seems vulnerable “almost all Android devices” (or more precisely, at least 950 million units), regardless of whether you run one of the first version of Google’s operating system, or some of the newest version of the lollipop.

Google has pointed out that the patch for a newly discovered flaw users Nexus phone offer on October 5, and that this same patch hardware partners to pass on 10 September, so that we now only remains to wait that they offer users of its devices.
