Bug Fixes/Enhancements

 

Persistent cross-site scripting (XSS) security vulnerability:

 

Bose SoundTouch applications for Android and iOS, interface versions 19.1.7 and earlier, contain a persistent cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability when displaying the name of Bluetooth connected devices in the device status dialog (CVE reference identifier CVE-2018-16143).  With this release, we are making a change to address this concern.  See our security advisory here for details.

 

Improved SoundTouch application stability during network changes:

 

We have improved how the SoundTouch application recovers when the mobile or desktop device running the app goes to sleep or is transported while connecting to other networks.  Previously, the application gave the appearance of not being on the network when the device was actually on the network.

 

*Note: In situations where your mobile or desktop device doesn't reconnect to Wi-Fi, customers should confirm their mobile or desktop device is on the same network as their SoundTouch speaker.

 

Music library searching issues iOS devices:

 

Addresses an issue in the SoundTouch application on iOS devices that would keep search from working correctly when special characters are used.

 

Spotify logo overlays now playing:

 

Fixes a bug that occasionally causes the Spotify logo to overlay the now playing screen.
