Microsoft ships security update for Phone 7

by on04 May 2011

If you are lucky
Software giant Microsoft has shipped a new security update for its Windows Phone 7 operating system. The fix is for the SSL certificates that were issued by Comodo after one of its resellers was hacked by an Iranian hacker in March.

NoDo is version 7390; the new security update brings the operating system up to version 7392. The security update includes all the NoDo updates, and so is only available to those network operators that have authorised the NoDo update. However there are still a few telcos which are refusing to release updates. Apparently Telefonica is still apparently testing both the February pre-update and NoDo and Telstra in Australia, though Telstra. Telstra said that it has authorised the update and is now waiting for Microsoft to release it.

Microsoft has had a few problems rolling out the updates to those with Samsung handsets.  Some users complained that updates had been halted. This was because Samsung used two different suppliers to provide parts for the Focus, and as a result there are two different models with slightly different flash memory components. Those which had the original components are receiving the update; handsets with the alternative parts are not. Microsoft said that an updated package is nearly ready.
