What does this mean for BYOD Enterprise Users?
This vulnerability will have serious implications when it comes to how corporate administrators will provide access into their networks/applications going forward. Traditional controls like MDM are most efficient when there is a baseline of "trusted" device types, typically used when evaluating devices entering a trusted network. In this case (and Stagefright), while there may be availabie fixes, providers are lagging in making it available to actual users essentially leaving these devices unprotected.

Corporate administrators without a proper remediation will likely begin to remove all access to network resources on a broader scale until they can validate their network is not introducing this risk within their organization. That means the "flexibility" and "availability" touted by BYOD programs will be essentially nill.

High Priority
Seems like a pretty high priority to me. Have they labeled it as low due to the lack of data in the wild? Now that it has had public release it will most likely become more prevalent.
