>>96086612>how much do they actually matter?A lot. New 0-days for Android are common and actively exploited all the time.>my shitty phone just got its last one today and i can't upgrade until decemberEnjoy having all your personal information stolen by any scammers that can manage to get an ad on your screen or a malicious website to load at all.
>>96086636In many cases you just need webp and webm to exploit your phone zero clicks needed
>>96086612As much as any other security update. So alot.I've seen people's phones get fucked because they have decade old shit.
I have delayed updates from december last year because I got angry with how they restricted file access
>>96086769>webp and webm to exploit your phone zero clicks neededI refuse to believe this
>>96086636so the problem is personal data? what personal data do people have on their phones?
so there's two custom ROMs available for my phone. one has encryption but no security updates while the other has security updates but no encryption. which is more important?
>>96086612My lg velvet hasnt received an update in 2 years. Fucking pussies.
I probably would care only if you use banking apps or whatever otherwise just turn that shit off
>>96086636>New 0-days for Android are commonfalse. they're difficult to find.>>96088203banking apps only check if they are able to access root, and even that can be bypassed.

>>96088306This nigger probably has malware on his phone and doesn't know it. Yes, security is a meme. Don't take reasonable precautions like having security updates.
Biggest issue with these "exploits" is the fact most people are so retarded they have 50 different spyware apps on their phones, 15 different social media logins, 10 separate photo "apps" which all require some form of account login and on top of this they use their banking and even work emails from the same device. And use some shitty public wifi whenever possible and whatnot.Most users are too stupid these days and it shows.
>>96088081>I have to lose either my kidneys or intestines>Which one is more important?
>>96086612My phone hasn't gotten a security patch since March, and I've never had an issue. But I'm not a retard who blithely opens e-mail attachments, sideloads random jeet apks, grants random apps blanket permissions, or taps on random links. Security patches lull users into a false sense of security. Just don't be a retard instead.
>>96088614>This nigger probably has malware on his phone and doesn't know it.i've been hacking phones since nokia were bricks with green backlit displays. i don't get hacked. i know how this all works. i bet you don't even have a fucking firewall, tyrone.
>>96088650you will only get updates IF something is wrong. i question the sanity of those crippled retards that go:> wow. my phone gets updates all the time! they really must care!if incompetence is caring then i must have woke up in a different dimension somewhere along the timeline
i havent updated mine in some years because along with the security updates it also introduces stupid bullshit that i dont want
>>96088733these niggas have some nerve locking this shit at OS level so you can't delete it or disable it.
>>96088691>doesn't understand software exploitsLike pottery
>>96088161Was this intentional? Based, then. Latest update was in June 2023. These updooters are just a bit over the top
i dont know and dont care. i firewalled my phone on router level on openwrt and pass proxy from my nas to allow connection only from trusted browser and termuxphone cant ping home or know about updates now
>>96087358>I've seen people's phones get fucked because they have decade old shit.things that never happened
I haven't updated my phone for 2 years since the pajeet ROM OTA updater stopped working
>>96088799> coping this hardyou're not very smart.see:>>96088728
>>96086636>>96087358suck my cock glowie, I'm not gonna install your "security" shithack me whenever you want
>>96086636>personal information stolenwhy would i have personal information stored on something as volatile as phone that can easily be lost?
android is way more 'locked down' than say, windows. is an exploit is usually just going to lead to a crash over bluetooth. if your phone isnt easily rooted without plugging it in to a pc then its probably safe for the time being.
>>96086612You can check the CVEs medium issues that get patched all the time https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list/vendor_id-1224/product_id-19997/Google-Android.htmlIt is ideal to have updates.It needs to be said however that lately google has started separating parts of the android operating system. some security updates are handled by google directly.
>>96086612>can't upgrade for 2.5 monthsit's over. might as well give away all your cash and private photos/info now.
>>96086636>get an ad on your screen or a malicious website to load at allI don't play games or use shitty apps on my phone, and the very few times I visit a site it's firefox + ublock origin
>>96088961>hack me whenever you wantYou've been hacked a million times already, but nobody that hacked you has announced it to you.
>>96090198kekhave fun with my pepe pics and my shitposting history I guess
>>96090444>have fun with my pepe pics and my shitposting historyI'm having more fun selling your name, photo, phone number, email address, email contents, browsing history, contacts list, text messages, location history, and call logs to shady advertisers and identity thieves.
>>96090463>your name>photo>email address>email contents>browsing history>text messages>location historyno such things on my phone>phone number>contacts listalready got that from my contacts who are retarded despite having the latest security patches>call logsgood for you I guess>to shady advertisersno ads on my devices>identity thievesI'm nobody and I'm really intrigued what could they do with my phone number and call logs
>>96090523>no such things on my phoneThat's what you think
>>96090534kek, who are you trying to convince?
>>96090740I'm just having a conversation with you bud. Were you posting with the expectation that nobody would ever reply to you?
>>96090762I love (You)s just like anyone elsethanks bro
>>96088961nobody cares about you because you have $0 in your bank account and nobody cares about your hentai pics. but normal people have things to lose
it depends on who are you and who are your enemies. if you actively want the jews to kill you, them you should care, but for 99% of people it means jack shit.
