LG has been one of the top OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) that rolls out security updates for its mobile devices soon after they are reported. The South Korean company last year was recognised as top OEM for issuing security patches to its Android devices by the University of Cambridge UK. Now, the company has launched its own product security site with an aim to be the first point of contact for all security issues related to LG mobile products.
LG says that the Product Security website will publish bulletins and updates 'regularly' regarding security issues in LG devices. The new security website will be managed by LG's own Product Security Response Team (PSRT). It will provide information in the categories namely security news, response process, security bulletins and security issues reporting.
The new security website by LG will detail issues related to Android that are issued by Google and will include the most critical vulnerabilities listed first, followed by those deemed high, moderate and low threats. The company has also asked customers or researchers to reach out to them in case they have discovered a possible security flaw in an LG mobile product.
"With mobile security issues increasingly becoming a regular part of our lives, it is more important for consumers and organizations to be more transparent and work closer together to stay on top of the rapidly changing landscape," LG said.
