Samsung Patches BlueBorne on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in India

30 September, 2017 Samsung Updates

The BlueBorne security threat had been bugging Android, iOS and Windows devices for quite a while now but full marks must be given to Samsung because they had been patching their old and new handsets against the vulnerability even before it became public knowledge. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ were slightly late to the party because less premium handsets had been given the necessary security update before them. Nevertheless, the two flagship smartphones had started to receive their security patches in the last few days in Europe and now the same update has also reached India.

The update will come in at 476.55MB and should carry the build number G955FXXU1AQI7 with it. In case you are wondering, this OTA package does not include the September security update from Google in it, which means that Samsung will likely skip it and move straight to pushing out the October security update later in October. We recommend downloading and installing the update as soon as possible because the BlueBorne security threat is a serious issue that can leave your phone vulnerable to attacks from any hacker with the knowhow as long as the Bluetooth on your handset is active.
