Nice to know that mobile carriers still have the best interests of its subscribers’ heart, what with Sprint’s latest outing by delivering an update for HTC devices running on Google’s Android mobile operating system that will (hopefully) see the end of a privacy-related bug. Basically, if you are rocking to Sprint and are using the EVO 4G, EVO 3D, EVO Shift 4G, EVO Design 4G, EVO View 4G and HTC Wildfire S, an over-the-air update (you can also perform a manual update if you want to, of course) will be able to make sure your smartphone is more secure.
Here’s what Sprint had to say about the update, “Sprint worked closely with HTC after reports emerged of a potential issue that could allow malicious third-party apps to compromise data on Android devices made by HTC. We urge all users to install the update promptly.”
This update will basically prevent tools during the installation process to access various information on your smartphone including location history, phone numbers, SMS data, as well as a list of user accounts. Are you breathing easier now with the update?
