Samsung has published details on the August 2019 security patch over on its mobile security website as it prepares to start pushing out the latest security updates to its devices over the next few weeks. The August patch brings fixes for seven critical vulnerabilities in the Android OS; plenty of high-risk vulnerabilities have been patched as well, in addition to two moderate-risk vulnerabilities.

The patch also fixes 17 vulnerabilities that affect only Samsung Galaxy devices. These include a vulnerability in the Gallery app that can result in the acceptance of the terms and conditions for sharing location information without needing to authenticate and unlock the device; another vulnerability allows one to access image information for images stored in Secure Folder by exploiting the Motion Photo feature. As usual, a few vulnerabilities have not been disclosed to prevent exploitation before the new security patch has been installed on a device.

We should see updates bundling the August security patch coming out for various devices in the coming weeks, although we could see a few delays owing to the impending Galaxy Note 10 launch. As always, you can trust us to let you know as soon as the August security update starts rolling out, so be sure to keep checking back from time to time.
