Verizon's HTC One (M8) gets updated to thwart Stagefright?
The Stagefright vulnerability, named after the multimedia library used by Android since Android 2.2 Froyo, was a potential problem for 95% of active Android handsets before manufacturers started rushing out fixes for the problem. You might recall that the other day we told you that the first-generation Motorola Moto X was about to undergo a soak test, which could be to test a patch for Stagefright.
If you own the HTC One (M8) and receive notification about the update, you should make sure that you're connected to a Wi-Fi network before starting the updating process. In addition, you need to make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50%. Lastly, because the update is arriving OTA, it could take a few days to reach your handset.
Thanks for the tip, Lucas!
