BlackBerry starts rolling out August patch to its Android phones

BlackBerry has announced that it has started pushing out the latest security update (August patch) to its Android smartphones. As is usually the case, the announcement came in the form of a tweet from the company’s Security Incident Response Team.

#BBSIRT released our August #30dayPatchingSMR to ensure @BlackBerry customers are protected. Read it here: https://t.co/tmktJstDRB

The update is currently only hitting units purchased through ShopBlackBerry, the company’s online store. If you bought your Android-powered BlackBerry from a retailer or carrier, the patch may arrive a bit late.

Mostly, Priv and KEYone units are getting the update, as per reports. A quick look at comments on the tweet embedded above also reveals several complains about DTEKs not getting security update on time. Let’s hope things get better from now on.
