Egelman concluded his talk by saying Google paid his team a bug bounty for disclosing these vulnerabilities and promised fixes for them in the upcoming Android Q release. He called that not good enough, saying “The vast majority of Android users have older devices and won’t be getting over-the-air updates that patch this vulnerability.”


I'm not quite sure what this idiot wants Google to do instead; other than putting out a patch in a future version there's not much they can do. They are incrementally redesigning the OS to increase the amount of things that can be patched without having to go through OEMs/Carriers; but again these changes can only be done in new OS releases. Confused | :confused:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
