Hello all,
I do work for mobile operator and we take Android StageFright vulnerability really seriously. We are trying to find some flexible long term solution, so we can handle such a threats in future. We are as well afraid, that for many Android devices, there will never be OTA update available to patch StageFright. :-(

As Mpeg4 container is a ‘’bit’’ complicated structure I am not sure, if Snort rules could cover StageFright multiple buffers over/under flows described in corresponding CVEs. It is even more challenging as WAP or HTTP protocols could be used to deliver this vulnerability in MIME encoded MP4 attachment. So my question is, is it doable? Thank you. ☺
