Samsung details the August security patch

Samsung is committed to rolling out security updates for its Android-powered devices on a monthly basis. The company bundles them with the monthly security updates that are sent out by Google.

At the start of every month, Samsung posts the details about that month’s Security Maintenance Release on its dedicated security website. The company has now confirmed that it’s rolling out a security maintenance release for its major flagship models as part of its monthly update process.

The latest Android security patch from Google brings fixes for 28 vulnerabilities in the Android operating system. Google notes in its bulletin that two security patch level strings enable “Android partners with the flexibility to more quickly fix a subset of vulnerabilities that are similar across all Android devices.”

The security update that Samsung is going to roll out for its devices now include patches for 12 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE). The patches will help improve the security of Samsung’s mobile devices.

Samsung appears to have already started rolling out the August security update in some markets for one of its devices. It’s only a matter of time before the latest security update starts making its way to more recent flagship models across the globe.

“Samsung is committed to rolling out security updates for its Android-powered devices on a monthly basis.”

Really? (says the S7 Edge BTU owner – 1 update every 3 months)

And before that, 3 months between the last 2 updates. And they rolled out an update in the last few days, with July’s security update. Any reason why they couldn’t wait a few days and roll that out with August’s? BTU won’t see August nor September’s security updates. Probably not October’s either.
