CM logoHeads up everyone using CyanogenMod on their Android device -- there's a security release coming your way. The 10.1.1 release patches several high-profile security issues (including the Master Key exploit) and it is highly recommended that all users install the update when available for their device. Specifics are:

  • Bug 8219321 aka “MasterKey” exploit (also patched in CM 7 and CM 9 source)
  • CVE-2013-2094 (Linux kernel exploit)
  • CVE-2013-2596 (Qualcomm-specific exploit)
  • CVE-2013-2597 (Qualcomm-specific exploit)
  • General device bug-fixes

There are no new user-facing features in this release, so everything should look and feel exactly as you're used to. Stay safe, guys and gals!

CyanogenMod 10.1.1 released, patches several known security exploits


Hmm... hopefully it will come through the auto-updater soon. Really not in the mood to reflash now that we're spoiled with this feature. :)

I got my update to CM 10.1.1 on my VZW GNex (Toro) late this afternoon. Still feels smooth and safer than before :D
