October Security Patch Detailed by Samsung

3 October, 2017 Samsung Updates

Uncharacteristically, Samsung had completely skipped the September security patch and had instead decided to roll out only the BlueBorne security updates last month. It was only a matter of time before they detailed the October patch though and it has happened earlier than many experts anticipated. Although the update is not being rolled out to any of the handsets yet, Samsung should start sending them out very soon. The Galaxy Note8 and the Galaxy S8 series will be the first in line, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of the other less premium handsets also started to receive the October patch at the same time.

This patch would be quite a heavy one as far as we can tell since it contains 215 fixes from Google for addressing vulnerabilities in the base Android OS. On the other hand, Samsung has added only 6 of their own fixes for the overlying UI, which means that Samsung's own security team has become quite efficient these days. In case you have not received your BlueBorne patch yet from the OEM, don't worry because we are pretty sure that the October patch will likely have it. Check out Samsung's own site here to know full details about the October patch.
