This is why you buy Nexus phones, or Motorola that get native Android - to get the updates.

How is this massive?
To execute the attack, the attacker must have physical access to the device and the user must have a password set. Pattern configurations do not appear to be exploitable.
It seems like very specific conditions are required in order to use the exploit. I use the pattern anyway so this doesn't apply...
