An official statement from BLU Products says the company has identified and has quickly removed a recent security issue caused by a 3rd party app on six BLU mobile devices. The app had been collecting unauthorized personal data such as text messages, call logs, and contacts.
The affected devices include:
- R1 HD
- Energy X Plus 2
- Studio Touch
- Advance 4.0 L2
- Neo XL
- Energy Diamond
The affected application has since been self-updated and the functionality verified to be no longer collecting or sending this information.
Check Your BLU Device
If you own one of the listed smartphone, check: Settings -> Apps -> Settings icon in top right corner -> Show System -> Wireless Update. If your Wireless Update version is v220.127.116.11.004 or higher, your BLU device has received the security fix update and is fine.
