When you buy an Android phone or tablet, it’s worth knowing that you’re not alone.
When Apple released its iOS 9.3 software update, it was accompanied by a patch for Android, too.
And this time around, there is no guarantee that Android phones and tablets will be unaffected.
Apple’s update, however, is available for Android phones as of December 21, and the update has already been downloaded by at least 3.5 million users.
According to the firm’s security bulletin, a malicious application has been detected on the Android version of the popular gaming-centric application Razer Blade.
In addition to a malware sample, a sample of the Android file that triggered the update is embedded below.
Razer Blade is a popular gaming mouse that lets users control a virtual character by swiping left or right.
Razer says that the update fixes the security hole that was found by researchers in May, which let hackers gain access to user accounts.
According to Razer, the bug was discovered when it looked into the software of the Razer Blade, which allows developers to control the device’s motion and other properties remotely.
“We are extremely disappointed that this exploit was discovered and not patched prior to the official release of iOS 9, as it was an important vulnerability,” Razer said in a statement.
“We believe that our customers should receive the latest security update immediately.
As always, Razer and our developers continue to actively monitor and address security vulnerabilities.
In the meantime, we are working with our customers to provide a comprehensive update to all of our Android devices, including Android smartphones and tablets.”
Razer’s announcement comes as Google continues to focus on security improvements on its Android operating system.
Google recently released a patch that makes it easier for developers to include secure code in Android apps, such as code that blocks app execution if a user is in a secure area or a system that encrypts files.
The patch also adds a new feature called Code Integrity Checker, which checks if a code is safe and secure and warns users about possible problems.
Google has not yet released a statement on the Razer patch.
