Galaxy A5 2017 is Now BlueBorne Safe

27 September, 2017 Samsung Updates

The latest and greatest threat to Android, Widows and iOS user security is the infamous BlueBorne vulnerability. It basically enables hackers to take control of your smartphone through remote code installation via a Bluetooth connection. Once the malicious codes are installed, everything on your phone is at risk. Samsung had been dealing with this problem quite efficiently though and has patched the vulnerability on most of its newer (and some older) devices. It's time for the Galaxy A5 (2017) to receive the same treatment as well because as you read this, the BlueBorne patch is probably waiting for your A5 (2017).

The update firmware comes in version A520FXXU2BQIE, at a file size of 76MB and once you download and install the files, BlueBorne will no longer be a bother for your device. However, Samsung has not yet released this month's security patch for any of its devices yet. Given that it's already September 27, I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to just roll out the October security patch early next month and skipped the September patch altogether.

Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.
