I'm curious about the importance of rooting since it maybe an option to avoid being infected by Stagefright. The released of Marshmallow made a chance to be secured from the comeback of a threat targeting Android devices vulnerability, which was called Stagefright 2.0. Since the threat targets the flaws found in the each Android Stagefright, the possible exploitation on devices features and even personal files is in danger. The threat is in a form of MP3/MP4 format that is sent through MMS. The worst case is that, once it was received, it automatically download itself causing an infection.
It is said that the latest version Android Marshmallow has the patches that has the ability to secure the device. But unfortunately, not all Android devices can have this updated version. There goes the curiousity of how exactly rooting helps in this issue. Is it really useful to root your device to have an access and update to Marsmallow? Is it safe to have rooted device? What are the possible risk of rooting?
Can anyone give some idea?
