My phone still doesn't report any system updates.  When will patched software be available?

Hi Meagan,You'll have to contact the manufacturer of the device in question, they make the hardware and software and create the patches for said devices. You can ask them on any of their social media channels such as Twitter or Facebook.

Only Microsoft has released a patch. Google and Apple are still in the dark as of now.

The attack was hard to accomplish though, according to the paper of the discovering authors.
