Samsung Issues Critical Galaxy And Note Warning For 40 Million Users


Samsung has warned its users about critical security vulnerabilities that affect several Galaxy and Note devices. Out of all the 21 vulnerabilities, three of them are rated as ‘high’. There are 17 vulnerabilities related to Samsung One UI and four of them related to Android.

Samsung has sent out updates to Galaxy devices under its Security Maintenance Release (SMR). This update includes the patches from Google as well. The SMR update states that the patch improves protection against potential IMEI manipulation. On account of a device being stolen, criminals will be able to take advantage of this vulnerability to bypass the IMEI blacklist to resell the stolen device.

It is highly recommended to download the latest updates if you’re a user of any of the above-mentioned devices. Since the vulnerability is already known to the public, it won’t take much time for attackers to get cracking.

Countdown how long Singapore Galaxy users get it.

Samsung promises to provide Galaxy Fold and Galaxy A50 with monthly security updates

So where's the Sep security updates?

Samsung does not care about their customers la. Already said before.

They just want your money. And they release patches that disable features so they don't have to repair.

Security updates leh cannot delay too long.
please post if your local devices got patched.

Imagine if it was Intel, MS or Apple taking their own sweet time to patch their own security holes.

100% agreed. But some users here say Samsung don't owe us, the customers anything and we should be grateful Samsung is even updating our phones even if its once every few months.
