    Dude did you even read the blog post NYT links to? Viva la Open source android!!! BTW i couldnt activate UNTIL this update installed

    HTC EVO 4G: Nice Hardware, Horrible Sprint Software grack.com: Matt Mastracci's blog

    UPDATE: Sprint’s OTA release last night fixes the serious vulnerability we reported to them. Kudos to them for moving so quickly. As an end-user, you’ll have to decide between being more secure with the OTA update or having root access to the device you own for now.

    In the comments, Sean Doherty says:

    We want to reassure everybody about some questions that have been raised about HTC EVO 4G.

    We have a software update being deployed that corrects an issue with some MicroSD cards and also deploys a patch that will fix a potential security vulnerability. Users can install this update by going to Settings > System Updates > HTC Software Update on their EVO and following the instructions as prompted.

    Sprint moved swiftly to make sure this was addressed.

    I would think the exploit is more HTC/Google's fault. And mostly HTC.. i mean they do all the customization for Sprint and then Sprint tests it
