According to “zdnet”, Just days after a new branded bug, dubbed Stagefright, was disclosed in the widely popular mobile software, a new vulnerability threatens to render most Android devices unresponsive to basic tasks.
Discovered by Trend Micro researchers, the security flaw once triggered can put affected devices in a coma-like state, which includes preventing affected phones from making or receiving calls.
An attacker can exploit a flaw through either a malicious app, which the researcher said could have long-term effects on the device, such as crashing the device every time it is turned on.
In doing so, it will render the device mute, meaning no ringtone, message tone, or notification sounds will be heard.
The flaw affects devices running Android 4.3 "Jelly Bean" and later, including the latest Android 5.1.1 "Lollipop" update, a range that accounts for more than half of the entire install base.
