Nokia 8 and Nokia 3 get new update with security improvements

2

HMD Global, the current manufacturer of Nokia handsets, has a reputation for releasing timely software upgrades to its smartphones. It looks like HMD isn't planning on resting on its laurels, as it recently rolled out a new update to its Nokia 8 and Nokia 3 models.

The update in question brings the Android Security patch for the month of February that only went live a couple of days ago for Google's own Pixel and Nexus series. It weighs in at 87MB for the Nokia 8 flagship and at 80MB for the budget-friendly Nokia 3. One of the important fixes included in the update addresses a critical security vulnerability in Media framework that could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code.

The update is available OTA, but it might need some time to reach all compatible devices. You can check for it manually by going to Settings > Other > Software Update. As always, make sure that your phone is sufficiently charged and connected to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding with the patch.
