Samsung July 2018 security patch detailed

Samsung today detailed its latest security maintenance release for compatible devices. The company is still in the process of rolling out the June 2018 security patch to some devices so it may be a couple of days before this new patch actually starts rolling out.

The July 2018 security patch includes patches from both Google and Samsung for Android OS and its custom software respectively. The patches from Google include all of the patches up to Android Security Bulletin – July 2018 package with an Android security patch level of July 1, 2018.

Samsung July 2018 security patch

The July 2018 security patch brings fixes for four critical vulnerabilities as well as dozens of high and moderate-risk vulnerabilities. The critical vulnerabilities patched in this maintenance release could enable a remote attacker to use a specially crafted pac file to run arbitrary code in the context of a privileged process.

Samsung has also included patches for nine Vulnerabilities and Exposures items discovered in its own software. The company will now begin rolling out the July 2018 security patch to compatible devices.

If history is any indication, the rollout of the July 2018 security patch will begin with mid-range handsets first in the next week or so before high-end devices receive the latest update as well. It will certainly take more than a few weeks for this update to be released for all compatible smartphones.

We’ll inform you as soon as Samsung starts rolling out firmware updates with the July 2018 security patch onboard.

The last BRF8 update, breaks dual SIM + microSD support onto S9, maybe Samsung take in consideration to revert this nonsens limitation into the next July update !

So what it’s not official supported ? It’s still a nonsens limitation, it’s a loose loose situation right now ! They shouldn’t do that limitation in the first place, if something work flawless don’t broke it, Samsung need to learn that ! Many of us we bought our S9 & S9+ taking that little oportunity function in consideration, if the broke it, many of us we will move on, loose loose like I just said !
