At the beginning of the month, we broke the news about a huge security vulnerability in several HTC phones, including the Thunderbolt, EVO 3D, EVO 4G, and possibly more. Not long after word of this issue hit the 'net, HTC issued a response acknowledging it, as well as promising to deliver a patch to correct it. Looks like they are making good on that promise now, as several HTC devices are currently receiving an OTA update to correct this vulnerability.

So far, we've confirmed that the EVO 3D, EVO 4G, EVO View 4G, and EVO Design 4G on Sprint are all receiving an OTA update. While the EVO line is only receiving a small OTA that fixes the issue (and in some cases, a few other bugs), the fix for the Thunderbolt is bundled in the newest Gingerbread update, which should begin rolling out any time now. Of course, if you don't want to wait for that to happen, you can always flash the RUU.

Update: Looks like you can add the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide and G2 to the list of devices receiving the update, as well. [Thanks, Amaurys and skmpowdjy!]

To see if the update is available on your device, head into the Settings menu and tap About Phone > System Update > HTC software update.

As always, if you get this update on any device that we haven't already mentioned, make sure to drop us a line.
