HTC bears good news to all HTC EVO 3D users:  a security update for this device will be rolling out starting on October 27. It’s just a few hours away, but you can force install this update right now from the Sprint Community.

Software version 2.08.651.3 will feature a host of security improvements, but Sprint remains mum on what these updates specifically are. Like most updates, Sprint will be cascading this update in stages. So if you don’t get the update right away, just keep trying and checking within this week.

HTC users have reported a few security flaws over the last few weeks, citing claims that the HTC Android gadgets could potentially allow intruders to access sensitive information on the device. While HTC has issued a statement assuring their users not to worry about these purported spying claims, it is hoped that this security update will help prevent reports of similar alleged breaches in the future.
