T-Mobile Galaxy S4 receives new update to fix Stagefright vulnerability
T-Mobile is rolling out a new software update for the Galaxy S4, it’s not a major update which brings any new features to the handset, but it’s a very important update nonetheless. The carrier has finally rolled out the Stagefright fix for this device so it’s imperative for users to download and install this update as soon as it lands on their handset.
Stagefright is the name of a security vulnerability that was discovered in Android recently, it can allow hackers to gain access to a target’s device only by sending a video clip with embedded malware through a MMS message. Google and Samsung have already rolled out the fix but carriers have held it up for several devices, it’s good to see that T-Mobile has now pushed it out for the Galaxy S4. This update moves the device up to baseband M919UVUFOH3 and weighs in at around 15MB. T-Mobile is rolling it out today and it should go live for all users across the United States soon enough.
