Finally, the “7392” update, which has spontaneously begun delivering today, has been detailed by Microsoft.
The “7392” update
In addition to our ongoing updates, this week we also begin distributing a small new update that adds no new features to your phone. Its sole purpose is to fix nine fraudulent third-party digital certificates. Once installed, you’ll see “OS version: 7.0.7392.0” when you tap Settings>About>More Info on your phone. You can read more about 7392 on our Update History page.
How you get 7392 depends on your mobile operator and what updates you’ve installed. Customers with Deutsche Telekom and Optus, for example, will receive 7392 and the March update together. If you’ve already installed the March update, you’ll receive 7392 as a standalone download or bundled with a future update.
What do you think about the 7392 update? It definitely shows Microsoft isn’t tolerating any “hacking” of devices, unlike other companies. Let us know in the comments below!
