Stagefright Bug Makes a Comeback

Stagefright is quickly becoming the bug that wouldn’t die. The new vulnerability works by encoding a malicious program into an audio file, delivered over mp3 or mp4. Once a user previews the file or visits a page where that file is embedded, Android’s audio preview will activate the program, infecting the device. #tech
