Software update enhancing the security of the Photo Share app for certain Bravia TVs

    Dear Valued Customer,

    We have released a software update to enhance the security of certain BRAVIA™ televisions to address potential security issues with the “Photo Sharing Plus” application. 

    Security Updates

    This software update fixes the following security vulnerabilities on the “Photo Sharing Plus” application. These vulnerabilities can be exploited in the same local Network:

    • Stack buffer overflow
    • Directory Traversal
    • Command Injection


    If your television is set to automatically receive updates when connected to the internet, it should have already been updated. This is the default setting for the affected models.

    To verify that your television has been updated, please visit the Downloads section of your model's product page. Click the Firmware update link for details about how to check the software version. If your television has not already been updated, please follow the instructions to download and install the update.
