The Lollipop-flavored update has begun for Big Red's take on Motorola's flagship smartphone.
The bug appeared to stem from a tweet that contained a link with code from character converter Punycode. Troublemakers then decided to share the link to intentionally crash other people's apps.
A vulnerability could allow hackers to trick users into downloading fake apps, which could siphon off their personal information, researchers warn.
The vulnerability affects roughly 95 percent of all Apple mobile devices currently in use, according to a new report.
The flaw -- uncovered by IBM researchers in May and patched by Microsoft on Tuesday -- affected every version of Microsoft's desktop OS since Windows 95.
Version 2.02 of the PlayStation 4 firmware comes hot on the heels of version 2.01, which Sony released last week to fix a Rest Mode bug.
The new beta also offers performance enhancements and one change that affects the iOS 8 Health app, says AppleInsider.
Users of Windows and other Microsoft software will receive a slew of updates on Tuesday, including five rated as critical.
The bug was reported by developers with Nexus 5 smartphones but has been resolved just as the updated mobile operating system begins to trickle out.
Sony's newest update aims to fix a problem from a previous update that prevented the PlayStation 4 from coming out of Rest Mode.
