Zimperium security company announced the existence of a bug in the Android OS from version 2.2 to version 5.1.1_r4, 95% of Android devices - an estimated 950 million devices, which allows the remote execution of arbitrary code on any Android phone not patched. This vulnerability known as Stagefright, name of the library where the error lies, has been communicated to Google through a "Responsible Disclosure". However due to the fragmentation of the operating system, the number of terminals that do not receive the corresponding update will be high.
