Patching the Stagefright vulnerability is a high-priority task for all carriers around the world these days and AT&T became the second in the US to solve the problem. Sprint was the first to release the update, and now AT&T unleashes a similar patch for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy Note 4 handsets on its network.

SamMobile reports that AT&T has just began to roll out an update that only comes with "device security enhancement" and nothing more. Unfortunately, it looks like the official update page is not available yet. Nevertheless, it is obvious that updated devices should no longer be susceptible to the Stagefright vulnerability. The source did not mention if this update also brings the Android version up to date, as it is the case with the new firmware from Sprint.

AT&T's software applies to Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Active, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S5 Active, as well as Galaxy Note 4. Sprint updated the Note 4 first, and in the meantime also released patches for Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy Note Edge.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
