Wow, this is pretty fucking scary. Here's my question, though. For older devices that will never get another ROM update (and therefore never get a patched set of libstagefright), can these exploits be mitigated using 3rd party SMS apps?

Nobody sends me MMS, so I'm good. But this is going to SUCK for people that have to wait for carriers to approve updates, or people on low cost handsets that don't get updated.

That article is riddled with spelling mistakes. Doesn't anyone proofread articles before they publish them?

Shut off your mms auto-retrieve, this will be fixed soon. Only take mms from people you trust for now.

This is not good advice. All MMS should be considered suspect. One of the first things that happens when a device or email account is compromised is to immediately send more exploit messages to everyone in that person's contact list. Messages from people you know are often more dangerous than from people you don't. Since you recognize the person, your guard will go down.
