Samsung and Google address 9 critical bug fixes in the September SMR update

9 September, 2016 Samsung Updates

Samsung has now put an end to rumors which had been forming around the fact that Samsung did not detail the changelog regarding the September Security Update that just started going out two days ago. You can now find all the details regarding the patch on the company's official security page.

From the changelog, it is apparent that Google has fixed 9 critical vulnerabilities in this update. An additional 57 issues will also be dealt with, after you download and install the September SMR on your Galaxy device. Coincidentally, 9 is also the number of issues that Samsung itself addresses with this update on their flagship smartphones. If you own an international version of the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge/Note 5, the patch fixes a susceptibility issue associated with the Exynos 7420 SoC. As of now, the updates are currently being rolled out to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, but all eligible devices around the world should start receiving their updates pretty soon.
