Sprint HTC Devices Receive Security Updates

Sprint, HTC Updates
All of Sprint’s newer HTC Android devices will receive an update starting today. The update can be installed manually through the Android menu >> Settings >> System updates >> HTC software update. Otherwise, users will receive an over-the-air update pop-up notification.

The update comes as HTC is hurrying to fix a gaping security hole in the latest version of the Sense platform on Android. The hole was exploitable by third-party malicious applications and could have potentially led to compromised data.
