    Thank you hardwareguru for the info. That's great news. Two new vulnerabilities was recently discovered, hopefully these are patched as well.

    Can you kindly link me to a rom with the fixes i can download and install?

    Hi there, just installed and scanned for stagefright, the rom you linked is vulnerable to;

    Any other rom suggestions that may have the stagefright vulnerability patched?

    This vulnerability is fixed in the 2.5.0. But don't forget that the problem is limited to devices with MMS capabilities. So surely not your MINIX.

    Sorry mate, been hearing allot of "only MMS" going around, and that simply is inaccurate info. An infected MMS is an example of only one point of entry another point of entry which is far more likely to occur with our devices is accidentally watching an infected video file embedded with code to take advantage of the stagefright vulnerability.

    Okay, guess ill be installing ubuntu on this device until this gets sorted out and 250 is available.


    Maybe Minix could just release the updated libs so that we can make a patch? Or release a security patch?

    Hi gufone, you said this would be fixed in 250 but it was not. Can you comment please?

    The problem is that rockchip provided a precompiled library that works but is vulnerable. If we use the one we compile (and have patched) the vulnerability is gone but there are seriously problem of video decoding. At the moment we have decided to privilege functionality until we are less busy in our respective works and lifes to work on a solution.

    Thanks for getting back to me. Does Minix sell hardware that isn't rockchip base?

    I am pissed that I own rockchip and Samsung hardware that is still stagefright vulnerable nearly 10-12 months later.

    Really as consumers, if security is a priority it seems we should be only purchasing Apple or Google.

    Yes, expect Rockchip Minix sells AmLogic and Intel based devices too. Look at the forum section highlights.
