Credit to Joshua Drake of Zimperium Labs, he discovered what is believed to be the worst Android vulnerability discovered to date. This impacts 95% of Android devices, an estimated 950 million users. Not surprising, the Android operating system is quite sophisticated.

This attack exploits the MMS text system. What makes it especially bad is that without any action, a user’s Android can get infected. The virus has full access to your contacts, photos and more.

Could something like this happen again?

The answer is not exactly this virus but something similar, absolutely yes. We recommend protecting your contacts with CrypSafe and photos with PhotoShield.
