Mockery? Sugarcoating?

> The malware uses already-patched flaws in Android, so update the OS as soon as possible buy a new phone as soon as possible

Here, fixed it for you.

How can anybody even suggest users should update when they know perfectly this is impossible because it depends entirely on the manufacturer's marketing strategy, which is always geared towards forcing you to buy a new phone every year (at least).

(And don't even bother with the "flash your own" malarkey, that's only possible for a limited few, and even then, not for every phone.)
