Sprint may have been the first carrier in the country to start rolling out the security fix for Stagefright vulnerability but it’s certainly not going to be the only one. AT&T has now started rolling out an over-the-air update for several Samsung handsets, the updates don’t bring anything other than this important security fix. AT&T has released the update for a total of six Samsung handsets today.

AT&T’s is rolling out updates with a “device security enhancement” for Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Active, Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy S5 Active.

Users can either wait for the OTA update notification to pop up on their device or they can head to the System Update menu in Settings and try to manually pull it, however it shouldn’t take too long for this update to go live for all AT&T users.

Stagefright Android vulnerability was discovered recently, it enables hackers to remotely gain access to a mobile device powered by Google’s operating system by just sending a video using MMS. The video is processed by the device on its own without requiring any input from the user and thus the malicious code runs and gives access to the hacker.

It goes without saying that users who receive this update today should waste no time in downloading and installing it on their device.
