Microsoft is set to release its third update for Windows Phone 7 at the beginning of May, according to Slashgear. The update, expected on May 3 to be specific, will address some security concerns that recently came to light.
Security authority Comodo recently told Microsoft it had issued nine certificates “without sufficiently validating” the third parties. Oops. Ultimately the fraudulent certificates could be used for spoofing or phishing attacks.
The issue has been addressed with a patch for desktop users, but Windows Phone 7 users are still at risk.
The first Windows Phone 7 update was more of a pre-update, and reportedly bricked a number of Samsung phones. The second update, NoDo, finally introduced copy & paste, five months after the operating system hit the market.
The next big update, Mango, is expected at the end of 2011 or early 2012. It’ll bring multitasking and IE9 with partial HTML 5 support.
