You might remember the nasty SSL library bug called “Heartbleed” which made headlines a while ago. Hundreds of thousands of servers,computers and many other devices running Linux with OpenSSL library were affected by it. This bug made possible for attackers to steal your data by intruding SSL connections of affected devices. Millions of smartphones running old Android 4.1.1 jelly bean were affected by heartbleed bug and this forced the device manufacturers to release patches to their old almost abandoned smartphones. Huawei too did this job quietly and now they have delivered the fix for their most popular budget smartphone Ascend Y300.

This new B209 firmware is delivered to Germany and other European countries. Heartbleed bug is fixed in this new firmware but unfortunately we don’t have a full changelog just yet.
