A ~45 MB sized update has just landed to every Jolla phone out there, making up to the recent security issue that has been found on Linux based devices known as “Shellshock” bug.
This update contains a few other fixes alongside the Shellshock fix which is for sure welcomed, and Jolla also confirms that Update 9 is in its stabilization period.
Given that update9 is still in its stabilization period, we decided to roll out the fixes for the recently discovered security vulnerabilities (along with a few others) to your devices while we continue to work with update9. This hotfix update fixes
- bash vulnerabilities (Shellshock) – CVE-2014-7169, CVE-2014-6271
- NSS vulnerabilities – CVE-2014-1568, CVE-2014-1544, CVE-2014-1491, CVE-2014-1490, CVE-2013-5605,CVE-2013-1739, CVE-2013-1741, CVE-2013-0791
- Also fixed in the browser engine (Mozilla bug #1064636)
- NSPR vulnerabilities – CVE-2014-1545, CVE-2013-5607
Till update 9, we are at least sure that our devices are free of security holes!
