I was just informed of the StageFright vulnerability in Android devices.
A specially crafted MMS message can gain access to data on the phone; so presumably it's a buffer overflow with subsequent privilege escalation.
Details have not yet been disclosed, but the practical question is: how can ...
one of my friend said he has solar system on the roof of his house and it is free installation and no payment on the system. Just pay set amount monthly to solar company. I did not believe. Is there some one can explain how that solar system company doing business.
what is the consumer's benefits...
@MichaelFrank Not really. The vulnerability is specifically with how video (3GPP) files are processed. MMS is one vector for infection, and particularly dangerous because it can happen with zero user interaction, but MMS itself doesn't contain the vuln.
(so, second part of your statement is right. first part, not quite)
@Bob right but the question is, other than spreading specifically crafted MMS, does it go to the point where any viruses are so complex as to craft the crap to a regular persons pic of thier kids they took 2 seconds ago?
@Bob making that good enough that , the hacker could be the one claiming they are sending you a pic to begin with. that is pretty seriously involved, like the hacker would have to have A) something to prove B) somone to hate :-)
I've watched various videos, and it's the latest version of Flash and all appropriate settings.
I turn the videos up to 4K (2160P) and they chop a little bit ... like every frame isn't smoothly seen.
Also, I am using a 50 MB internet connection, but the video buffers non-stop and barely plays.
@HackToHell because while evryone is going crasy for RES, they have entirely forgot about frame rates? I hate that, the general concentration is on more of one, and we still dont have 60FPS video, which IMO should have come first, and yet barely even exists anywhere.
You mean like fight scenes where it is just a blur , after all that work on the set for HD, then all the coreography for days, i get 3 blurred frames. Well its not like they ever hit anything anyways :-)
The queasy cam stuff also looks a lot better when there is more FPS too, It just all seems so odd to me that for 50 years we have struggled with horrible frame rates and Grain in film. 50 years later when we can basically present a Eye View of what is going on, they add IN grain , and reduce the frame rate, cause it looks like film.
But film was always the "limitation" of representing stuff.
@JourneymanGeek So, in the US there are some shipping programs where UPS or FedEx will ship your package fast, and then hand it off to the post office in your town to actually deliver it. These services end up being very slow for some reason...

We routinely review apps based on performance, fake ratings and fraudulent user reviews and take steps to remove apps if they do not meet our certification guidelines, of sending us $100. We are aware of the issue and are actively removing a few apps that offer little money to us, or confuse customers, by not paying up. We will continue evaluating our collection process to make sure Windows offers the highest app quantity available, reguardless of any functionality.
(actually they removed 1500 apps once, and 100 or so at various other times, the above is only a parody)
