New Windows Phone 7 Update In The Works To Fix Security Holes?

The vast majority of users are still waiting for their NoDo launch, and it looks like Microsoft’s already working on another minor upgrade, this time fixing some security holes. Microsoft recently issued a security advisory for fraudulent security certificates for a number of popular sites, including Google, GMail, Skype, and Yahoo. The certificates have since been stripped, and Microsoft has updated their desktop OSs and browsers to prevent the problem from hitting again, but this change hasn’t rolled out to the mobile versions yet.

If WinRumors’ source is to be believed, this could be the first OTA update for Microsoft, as hopefully something this small — but of great security importance — could be pushed out easily and without carrier interference.
