We show that four-dimensional black holes become stable below certain mass when the Einstein-Hilbert action is supplemented with higher-curvature terms. We prove this to be the case for an infinite family of ghost-free theories involving terms of arbitrarily high order in curvature. The new black holes, which are non-hairy generalizations of Schwarzschild's solution, present a universal thermodynamic behavior for general values of the higher-order couplings. In particular, small black holes… Expand
