Re: Who intentionally sends MMS messages these days?


- I have turned off MMS upload (never used the system anyway)

- I don't use hangouts

- I never installed Viber.

- Media playack by VLC

What else?

Why are you assuming that VLC... Is any safer then say Kodi?! Do you even know what Stagefright does?! Or would you just be assuming that its only something that gets installed along with Kodi?!

FYI -- Stagefright is the Hardware Acceleration CODECs needed by your Device in order to playback pretty much every Media File you have, and unless I'm missing my guess here... This shall also include such mundane things like *.mp3's.

So someone shall have to explain this one to my why VLC should be any safer then the next Player?!
