Earlier today, Samsung posted the contents of this month’s exploit maintenance patch on its official Security Blog. The upgrade, which is currently en route to the South Korean company’s major flagship models, is primarily targeted at fixing a critical driver error which could, if not treated, enable intruders to access files stored on your device’s personal drive.

Not surprisingly, the manufacturer could not disclose the entire changelog for this update as there are patches for bugs present that may not have been discovered prior to its release and, once uncovered, hackers may attempt to manipulate them to their own ends before the firmware is rolled out.
