Galaxy S6 edge+ October security patch now rolling out in various markets

The October security patch is beginning to arrive on the Galaxy S6 edge+ with the latest update for the device. The update is rolling out in various markets in Western Asia and a couple of others, including the UAE, Iran, Egypt, and South Africa. The build number for the new firmware is G928CXXS3CQJ3.

Galaxy S6 edge+ October security patch now available

The October security patch fixes 215 vulnerabilities found in Google’s Android operating system and six vulnerabilities that exist in Samsung’s software. Some of these are detailed in this post, while others are kept secret to prevent hackers from exploiting them before the October patch has hit all eligible devices (and right now, the October patch hasn’t hit even the Galaxy S8 or Note 8 in most markets). We’re not aware of any other changes in the latest update for the S6 edge+, and we’re guessing there isn’t anything on offer other than the security enhancements.

You should be able to download the update by going into the Settings » Software update menu. Alternatively, you can download the corresponding firmware for your country from our database and flash it manually using a PC, or by using Samsung’s Smart Switch desktop software. Let us know if you have received the update on your device.
