If you make edit suggestions on Stack Overflow, please keep this in mind:

  1. code markdown is for code, not for product names or protocol names.
    Also, if a keyword appears in text (as opposed to appearing in code), it is not necessary to put it in code markdown.

  2. Don't use boldface or italic unless it is really necessary.

  3. The first person personal pronoun in English is "I", not "i".
    The second person personal pronoun in English is "you", not "u".

comment How can common users defend against the StageFright vulnerability?
I'm in doubt about the second part of your answer. All software may contain vulnerabilities, regardless of who created it. The problem with Android is that patches must go from Google to the end users through the manufacturers, as Bruce Schneier points out.
