Anonymous, 09 Mar 2017"many of the vulnerabilities highlighted in the leak have already been fixed!, that is not tru... moreYou are right but those users own lower and mid range phones and mostly they don't need that much security in a phone. All they care about is the camera, phone, browser, social apps and games are working and it's enough for them and anything beyond that does not concern them. People who need security are those who understand it and they for devices they are supported and are secure.
And if you really need security in a phone that much then go BlackBerry phones.
So the only way to stay relatively safe inside Android is to buy a Pixel or at least a device with monthly security patches.
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2017"many of the vulnerabilities highlighted in the leak have already been fixed!, that is not tru... moreDid that report only release on iOS and Android? Is there a report similar for Windows mobile? Granted less devices out there, running mobile Windows but am curious how it stacks up to the list the other two have...
Nougat market share is around 0.1% now. So are the 99.9% of android phones all safe?
Hey Gogoli (Google) it's your fault
No update and no even newer light versions of android for example: nougat light version for poor phones like my cheap android phone, no ear for listening
AnonD-640202, 09 Mar 2017A secure phone is with least favorite OS in its current market. BB OS, Tizen, Windows Phone... moreIf those were to get more popular then it would make sence to find vulnerabilities... there too, but today almost nobody use them so CIA... have no reason to develop hacking... software for them!
"many of the vulnerabilities highlighted in the leak have already been fixed!, that is not true because most users still use Android versions that will never ever be updated and never get any of these "fixes"! Android is a very unsafe OS becuase of the not existing updates for most users!
Sachmo, 09 Mar 2017Well of course Google and Apple are telling us the truth. Why in the world would they do otherwise?Haha exactly :).
Yeah yeah, all vulnerabilies have been fixed , except the vulnerability that is your cooperation with the US government.
post-thruth POV, 09 Mar 2017Forced move of Apple & Google PR. I think only secure systems was old Blackberry and Symbian. I agreement with you...symbian
And for us rest of Android users from most companies, CIA will continue to see me in my bare ass taking a dump in the toilet for the next 3-6 months.
Alien , 09 Mar 2017So if you really want a secure phone, either go with BlackPhone, either with Turing Phone. The... moreA secure phone is with least favorite OS in its current market.
BB OS, Tizen, Windows Phone 8.1, Windows 10 Mobile, Sailfish and any other OS with least market share are totally secure.
How? When there is no political or business high weights to use them, there is no need to waste spy tools to record talks or find casual publicly available locations.
Well of course Google and Apple are telling us the truth.
Why in the world would they do otherwise?
Let's spy on me.
What will they gain....... Nothing at all for hundred years.
Another day, Another leak, Another way to fill newspaper columns.
They are missing the point, Wikileaks first vetted the materials to not weaponize malicious groups, so saying the vulnerabilities were already fixed is a very "captain obvious" move.
So if you really want a secure phone, either go with BlackPhone, either with Turing Phone. They seem to be very focused on secure phones. Sure, they are not very well known, but then again, how many of us really need a super secure phone?
Most of the people only use them to Facebook, instagram, games etc.
I for one one never used a credit card online and I probably will never make any purchase with my phone so I don't care.
Go ahead, spy the hell out of my phone. All you'll get will be porn and maybe a virus or two :))
Also I bet they have the technology to spy on people from space if they want to, so this phone and other electronic devices problem seem like child play..
By the way, you should be more concerned about smartphones with assistant - the microphone is ALWAYS turned on, so it always listens to what you say. Add a little code to detect keywords and bam! The perfect surveillance app, that is installed into the system and only root gives you the possibility to delete it.
As longs as you don't do things you've not supposed to, relax. Nothing to worry about.
It's good to know someone is watching me play Orborous :))
It seems that BlackBerry BB10 is the most secure operating system on the planet no words from the CIA regarding any security flaws from BB10 can that same be said about Apple and Sammy's Son. Google God knows you been failing us from day one with that Android crap which full back-door for the spying agencies
