Microsoft can push out emergency Windows Phone security updates if needed


I think many of us have lamented the slow roll-out of Windows Phone updates around the world, and some have worried what this meant if our devices were ever actively exploited.

Now, at to a session at TechEd, Microsoft has revealed that Microsoft has the agreements in place to push out emergency security patches, presumably without the normal carrier testing which tends to slow everything down.

Of course, given issues like the Other Storage bug I think we would be happier if Microsoft did not put the bar quite that high, and also pushed out urgent updates for serious bugs,  but it is good to know that, unlike Android, if our devices ever become infested Microsoft will in fact be able to take care of us.
