Latest Galaxy S8 update reaches India, brings fix for BlueBorne exploit

Samsung has been pushing out an update to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in various countries in recent days to fix the recently discovered BlueBorne vulnerability, and the same update is now available for Indian users. At around 476 MB, this update is as big as the ones that have come before for Samsung’s 2017 flagships, partly because these updates now target a wide number of markets at the same time.

September security patch is still missing

As expected, this update does not bring the September security patch, as Samsung seems to have deemed plugging the BlueBorne vulnerability a priority this month. The update also brings improvements to wireless charging and the navigation bar. The build number for the update is G955FXXU1AQI7. You can download it over the air (by going into the Settings » Software update menu), use a PC to upgrade via Samsung Smart Switch, or wait for the latest firmware to hit our firmware database to do a fully manual upgrade.

Don’t forget to download this app to confirm that your Galaxy S8 or S8+ is now protected against the BlueBorne exploit. If the update hasn’t reached your phone yet, there’s nothing to worry about, as it takes time to show up for everyone. Just make sure you’re a Wi-Fi connection, so you don’t have to wait too long.

Does this bluebourne exploit only effect the S8 & S8+? I downloaded the app on my S7E out of boredom not expecting to say what it told me but it told me I was vulnerable.

It affects all android phones; except those with the patch which are currently Google Sept. patch holders and specific models.
