Verizon pushes out February security update for the Galaxy Tab S2

Verizon, the largest telecommunications provider in the United States, has been making the grade with its promise to distribute Google’s monthly security patches to all the flagship devices in its lineup, and has today started rolling out February’s fixes for its carrier-branded model of the Galaxy Tab S2 in the region. The upgrade (LMY47X.T817VVRS2APB2) addresses a handful of critical bugs embedded in the operating system, which could have allowed remote access via an instant message.

To prevent a server overload, the update is being pushed out in stages — so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the notification prompting you to download and install the update over the next couple of days. Verizon suggests that you have a fully-charged battery and be connected to a Wi-Fi network before pulling the upgrade to ensure that you obtain the quickest download speeds, and to avoid the slate from running out of juice halfway through the installation.
