    Last week a new security vulnerability that affects Android devices was discovered, called "Stagefright." since BlackBerry is running Android runtime, should we be concerned?

    Just downloaded the Stagefright app on my Passport 10.3.2.2339 and it's vulnerable!

    This is not really accurate. SMS does not go through the Android Runtime - it is handled by BB10.

    And, that was discussed in the thread Bla1ze linked to. That only checks for the auto retrieve function, not whether or not the system can actually be affected by anything.

    Stagefright digs deeper into the android system than the runtime has in the BlackBerry OS.

    The runtime is not a full android OS.

    The "contact us" part of the app says it all.
