Recently, Samsung and Google announced that they will be pushing out monthly security updates to their devices after the ‘Stagefright’ exploit was discovered. But it seems other OEMs will also be joining them soon, starting with LG.
LG spokesperson confirmed to wired that the company will be providing security updates on a monthly basis, which carriers will then release to users immediately. A Google employee also confirmed this at the Black Hat 2015 security conference.
With security becoming a bigger concern every day, it is important that manufacturers push out important security updates to devices on a regular basis rather than waiting for major software updates to push them through, which could take months. With this, users will have one less thing to worry about.
