Latest CyanogenMod patches 'Master Key' exploit among others
Two days ago, CyanogenMod's ciwrl has announced that a new version of the famous custom ROM has been released with a single task in mind: patch those nasty vulnerabilities that you've been hearing about lately. CyanogenMod 10.1.2 itself doesn't bring any new features to the table, instead, it has pushed fixes for several known exploits, among which the widely publicized 'Master Key' vulnerability.

The team behind the project encourages all CM users to ensure they have this latest patch, and we can't agree more. A link straight to the download section awaits you below. Stay safe!
