Motorola has announced which devices it'll be issuing software updates for a number of its devices to combat the potential "Stagefright" exploit, which theoretically could allow a malicious MMS video message an avenue of attack into a user's phone.
Motorola was quick to point out that it's not aware of the "Stagefright" flaw — so named for the libStageFright library that helps process multimedia files on Android phones — having actually been used in the wild.
The list of devices Motorola plans to patch is predicable, and comprehensive. The new Moto X Style (Pure Edition), Moto X Play will be patched at launch. The new Moto G, which is already shipping, will see some devices get an update for the fix, but going forward they should ship with the updated software.
Motorola says it'll start submitting the updated software to carriers for testing on Aug. 10. Here's the full list for updates:
- Moto X Style (patched from launch)
- Moto X Play (patched from launch)
- Moto X (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
- Moto X Pro
- Moto Maxx/Turbo
- Moto G (1st Gen, 2nd Gen, 3rd Gen)
- Moto G with 4G LTE (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
- Moto E (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
- Moto E with 4G LTE (2nd Gen)
- DROID Turbo
- DROID Ultra/Mini/Maxx
