The CyanogenMod 10.1 custom software for Android-based devices has been updated once again, with some more security enhancements packed inside, currently available for download as version 10.1.2.

The update comes only days after version 10.1.1 was pushed out, and is meant to resolve an apk-level issue in Android (bug 9695860), which has already been patched by Google, it seems.

All users are advised to update to the new release, regardless of whether they run CM 10.1.0 or CM 10.1.1 on their devices.

For those out of the loop, we should note that CM 10.1.1 was rolled out with security fixes for Bug 8219321 aka “MasterKey” exploit (also patched in CM 7 and CM 9 source), CVE-2013-2094 (Linux kernel exploit), and CVE-2013-2596 and CVE-2013-2597 (Qualcomm-specific exploits), as well as with general device bug fixes.
