Odds are that you’ve heard about the security hole that was found to exist in virtually all Android devices that would allow someone to take control of the device.
The good news is that Google has created a patch for the issue and sent it to OEMs. The challenge always comes down to the OEMs getting the patch distributed to our phones and, as always, that is taking time.
It turns out that we can all check to see if we have the patch installed thanks to Bluebox (the folks who discovered the problem) releasing a free app that will check your phone to see if you have the patch.
Although the app is not able to apply the patch because that’s up to the OEM of your device you can at least know where you stand and if you are so inclined start complaining to your carrier that you’d like them to work with the OEM and hurry to get it distributed.
