BlackBerry may not be doing well in the smartphone market, but it has moved faster than the rest of the Android OEMs (and its rivals) on QuadRooter. The Canadian firm, which announced a patch for both the DTEK50 and PRIV, says that if customers run the latest system update, they will be protected against all four of the QuadRooter vulnerabilities.

Patch for all QuadRooter vulnerabilities

In its announcement, the Waterloo-based firm noted that “three out of the four” vulnerabilities were already taken care of for the PRIV with the Marshmallow patch issued this month.

“I’m happy to announce that a patch for all of the QuadRooter vulnerabilities is now available for the PRIV and DTEK50 users,” said Alex Manea, Director of BlackBerry Security, in a blog post.
