Blackberry stated about update in a offical blog post and said:

This advisory addresses an industry-wide elevation of privilege vulnerability that is not currently being exploited against, but affects, BlackBerry® PRIV smartphones. BlackBerry customer risk is limited by the inability of a potential attacker to force exploitation of the vulnerability without customer interaction. Successful exploitation requires an attacker craft a malicious application (app) and that a user install the malicious app. If the requirements are met for exploitation, an attacker could potentially gain locally elevated privileges. After installing the recommended software update, affected customers will be fully protected from this vulnerability.
