Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with a small update for security measures
Well, who said that updates have to be big and game changing? As it seems Android has released a tiny update for its OS and it will address a security issue that was allegedly fixed by the update, named as unspecified security risk. It seems that the update will come in effect for the following devices the Nexus 4, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the 3G version Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10. The update is just 2MB but Google think that it will be effective and that it will bring the needed things to the software to make it more secure and reliable. If you have not received it yet do not worry it should not be long until the update just appears out of thin air and it will update your Build Number to JWR66Y from JWR66V on your Android device.
It becomes particularly interesting when you consider the fact that fairly recently a researcher from Symantec announced he had discovered a weakness in the Android’s Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA) which seemed to be a problem for a lot of devices. After this announcement as a lightning almos immediately Adrian Ludwig confirmed for Ars Technica that all versions of Android up to 4.2 are susceptible to this threat if measures are not taken. So it seems that Android is taking care at least for the devices that are now on the new Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and if it turns out that the new update has been focused on this issue it seems plausible that the new update may address it and fix it although it seems pretty small. But despite that we should not be confused by the size we are hopeful that the security has been improved and that now at least the newest Android devices are more secure.
