Earlier this month we heard that a security hole had been found in HTC’s Android devices, where certain devices could grant third party applications to access personal data, HTC acknowledged the security flaw an promised to release a fix.
HTC has now released an OTA update for certain devices to close the security hole, and rather than rolling out the update by individual handsets it would appear that HTC is rolling out the update by mobile carriers, as all devices which have had the problem on the Sprint network are receiving the update.
The devices on question on Sprint include the HTC EVO 4G, the HTC EVO Design, the HTC EVO Shift 4G, the HTC EVO 3D, the HTC EVO Design 4, the HTC Wildfire S and the HTC EVO View 4G.
There are no details as yet on when Sprint will roll out the OTA update to other mobile carriers, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
