Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Hi polonus,

AMS can detect videos containing Stagefright, i.e. the app is able to warn you that your device has been attacked.

I can also recommend you to read a very useful blogpost we released in July (https://blog.avast.com/2015/07/29/big-brothers-could-be-watching-you-thanks-to-stagefright/) and an article on our FAQ page (http://bit.ly/1gs9SiR) with more on how to eliminate the dangers.

Thanks, Tereza from AMS Team
