These Motorola smartphones will get security patches to address the Stagefright vulnerability

Monday, August 10, 2015

In the wake of Stagefright (a recently discovered Android vulnerability that makes it possible for hackers to remotely access phones without owners consent), Google, Samsung, and others have already announced security updates that will be pushed regularly to select devices. Motorola is also doing something in this regard: the company today said that most of its recent Android smartphones will receive updates including security patches addressing the Stagefright issue. 

The handsets that will get the patches are:

·         Moto X (1st generation and 2nd generation)

·         Moto X Pro

·         Motorola Droid Turbo / Moto Maxx

·         Moto G (1st generation, 2nd generation and 3rd generation)

·         Moto G LTE (1st generation and 2nd generation)

·         Moto E (1st generation and 2nd generation)

·         Moto E LTE (2nd generation)

·         Motorola Droid Ultra, Droid Mini, and Droid Maxx

As you can see, the brand new Moto X Style / Moto X Pure Edition and Moto X Play aren't included on the list. That's because they'll have the security patches integrated at launch (the Moto X Play should be released later this month, while the Moto X Style / Pure Edition is expected to be available starting September). Moto G 3rd generation models that will be released from now on will also have the patches pre-installed.
