    Google's default Messenger SMS app was apparently the conduit through which the vulnerability could be exploited. Google planned on updating that app (they may have already) so that it does not autoload video code like it was doing before. You can check for that update in the play store.

    Google's lead Android security engineer, Adrian Ludwig, answered in an interview that the ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization) mechanism in Android 4.0 and up also effectively protects against an attack otherwise attempted using the libStageFright vulnerability. CM9 is based on Android 4.0 so the same should apply.

    It wouldn't seem too hard to get a patch into CM9, but if a StageFright patch is not released for CM9, however, it's not as bad as it may sound.
