#Blackberry #BlackberryAndroid – BlackBerry pushes security update for its Android : BlackBerry keeps its promise for pushing quick security updates for its Android devices. The latest upgrade patches multiple vulnerabilities in all five BlackBerry powered Android smartphones.
The patch addresses issues from a security bulletin regularly posted by the BlackBerry Security Incident Response Team (BBSIRT). The company listed on its support page some of the vulnerabilities, fixed in this update along with the description what the patch prevents.
Some reinforcements were added to the bootloader of the chipset, strengthening access to metadata from the Wi-Fi driver and camera driver. BlackBerry also patched a loophole through which a malicious application was able to execute arbitrary code within the kernel.
The update should come to all BlackBerry Android devices, including those with telecom branding shortly.
