    KRACK fix and other security fixes. Anything beyond that is just a guessing game.

    Blackberry has released their November Android update, according to their online security pages. We should see a new build rolling out for various products soon.

    Could you post a link to the Blackberry "online security pages"?

    Sure.

    Blackberry SIRT: https://uk.blackberry.com/enterprise...-response-team
    Nov update: BlackBerry powered by Android Security Bulletin – November 2017

    To their credit, Blackberry have been good to with producing the security updates. Unfortunately some regional providers (looking at you UK!) have been dragging their heels in releasing the update to their markets. Begs the question: if an update is released, but no-one can download it, is it still an update?

    It would be useful if Blackberry produced an update status page which listed which updates are being held back by which authorities. Then we would know whose door to go knocking on.

    Thanks. Note that the changing uk to us in your link (and post!) works for localized content here. My Sprint phone still shows Sept 5 as most recent security update

    I'm on a sim-free Vodafone in Spain and on the same "update"!! Even if I found out I could download the update manually, it wouldn't be right. How many people (apart from tech geeks ) even know how to find update info on their phone? My wife got am Andoid update on her S7e two days ago and then didn't know how to find the update info or was even interested actually!!
    Hey, is it Oreo or just a security update? I asked excitedly.
    - Christ, what the heck is that? she replied in a 'don't know, don't care tone of voice.

    So, yep, defeats one of the main advantages of owning a BB Android device, doesn't it?

    I can't avoid to feel amazed about the Android's huge amount of vulnerabilities that have to been addressed every single month....

    Just be happy they are being addressed. Both Android and iOS use many third-party libraries, with vulnerabilities being found and fixed all the time. The important thing is that the fixes end up in the final product (and in our hands) in a timely fashion.

    So is AAQ302 being rolled out in some markets as the November update? I just received it this morning as the Oct 5 update.

    This is one reason we should all advocate for better back-up capabilites from BlackBerry. Bring back a full backup/restore capability like BB Link (including access to system updates, like Samsung) and the problem is solved.

    It's the second Oct patch, but with the Krack fix added.

    It's just that some skipped the first Oct patch.

    and for this reason, is why I traded my locked carrier K1 for an unlocked BE K1. got tired of nagging my carrier for updates. I had Bluetooth issues as soon as I got my K1 which the sept patch fixed. Had to nag and nag and elevate my concern to my carrier til they finally released it. Screw them. Bring it on BB, you have a customer for life!
