Samsung details contents of July security patch

Right on time, Samsung has taken to its Security Blog to reveal the contents of this month’s maintenance release, which addresses a total of 65 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the Android operating system and 16 weaknesses in the firm’s Galaxy-branded smartphones and tablets.

As expected, the majority of the patches are listed as “privately disclosed” to prevent hackers from exploiting them before the firmware is rolled out to eligible devices. When exactly the upgrade will start making the rounds is unknown, though we expect it to arrive on some handsets as early as next week.

Stay tuned.

I’ve just been updated to the June Security Patch, today by a T-Mobile Software update…This is truly a worry as end users should be constantly protected from known exploits, to mitigate any malicious exploitation of software flaws.

My s7 edge is still stuck at april’s patch. Whenever I check the update, it says the latest one is already intstalled. Frustrated. I am living in the UK, and brought my phone via the samsung official web store.

I was on April only until a couple of weeks ago. Half way through June without the security patch. Not acceptable and I’m using the S8+ UK BTU
