Insta360 App - Possible Android Security Issue? #stagefright

Hoping to get this in front of Samsung directly too...

I am concerned that the Insta360 app (used to view, edit & share 360 photos and videos) might contain a security issue. I am starting here but will also share with Insta360.

My router has some built-in security features to detect and prevent various exploits from spreading or being effecting. I recently confirmed that the "Two-Way IPS" protection events it logged were specific to my Note 20 Ultra and occurred exactly on two occasions that I was trying to upload and share 360 videos created with my Insta360 One X2 camera.

Insta360 seems to be an established and reputable company, but their play store app does require you to download an update from them (versus the play store). I thought about this for a while and ultimately decided to allow it since it was an established company. However, now I am having second thoughts.

See the screenshot of the security dashboard for a little more info.

That is not a Samsung device nor a Samsung app. I would recommend reaching out to the developers of that device and that app for support.

Understood, but it is an android issue and potentially the variation of Android on the Note 20. I wanted them to be aware of it. I have already reached out to Insta360 and will try to contact the Android team @Google.
