seems like this flaw can be avoided by only downloading apps from known sources, double checking the developer, and number of downloads etc.

Unless I have misread the article the corrupted apps are getting through the Google Play's Store and infecting consumers' Android phones:

Google's Play Store should be the best-trusted site to download apps from for Android phones but ironically it isn't.

 

This is because Google has allowed developers to infect consumers' Android phones without consumers being able to prevent it until 'O' operating system can be installed.

 

At least 95% => than 950 million Androids phones (back in 2015) in the world for Stagefright but with the latest problem virtually all Android phones will be vulnerable until O operating system security can be installed and based on the Moto G3rd Gen 2015 most Androids' phones will probably never get the patch or fix to deal with Google's incompetence.

 

Google's Play Store should be virtually 100% safe and also 100% trusted - definitely not virtually 100% incompetent.

 

 The Black Hats must be finding it ironical and extremely funny and stupid.

 

Similar to the Black Hats being told about Stagefright in 2015 (think it was) and Google being forced to create a second version because Google and partners told consumers that the first Stagefright patch actually worked which was completely false.
