Last month, we told you about Samsung Exynos exploit, Samsung did promised to come out with a security fix as soon as they can. We are seeing it today.
The exploit affects devices with the Exynos 4210 and 4412 processor, phone using those processors including Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II, the international versions of Samsung Galaxy S II, the international version of Samsung Galaxy S3, the international Galaxy Note, and the Galaxy Note 2 are all affected, as well as tablets using the Exynos 4, some Galaxy Player models, Galaxy Tab 2 devices and the Galaxy Note 10.1. We also don't want to forget the Galaxy Camera.
While the U.S. versions of the Galaxy S3 are safe this time, that's still a whole lot of phones. There are also a few other phones (like the MEIZU MX) that use this SoC and may be affected.
T-Mobile: Beginning January 16, the Samsung Galaxy Note II will have a software update to Android version 4.1.1/ Software T889UVALL4 via Over The Air (OTA) and Samsung Kies. This update improves security and provides bug fixes.
