Samsung has taken to its recently-revamped Security Blog to detail the contents of this month’s Security Maintenance Release (SMR). The upgrade, which could start making the rounds as soon as next week, addresses a total of 46 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) in the Android operating system and 12 in the South Korean company’s firmware.

As we’ve said time and time again, the majority of patches included in the update are listed as “privately disclosed” in an attempt to stop hackers from exploiting them before the firmware is rolled out to all eligible smartphones, including the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy A5 (2017/2016).
