Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy C7 Pro and Galaxy A8+ (2018) get March security patch

Samsung has released the March 2018 security patch for a handful of devices over the past few days including but not limited to the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy A7. It has now released the security patch for the month of March 2018 for the Galaxy S7 edge, the Galaxy C7 Pro and the Galaxy A8+ (2018).

March 2018 security patch rolling out to more devices

Samsung started rolling out the latest security maintenance release for the Galaxy S7 earlier this week. It was only a matter of time before the Galaxy S7 edge got it as well. The company is now rolling out firmware version G935FXXS2DRC3 for the Galaxy S7 edge in several markets across Europe. The firmware file is now available for download from our database.

The Galaxy C7 Pro is finally getting a more recent security patch. Samsung has released firmware version C701FDDU1BRC2 for the Galaxy C7 Pro in India today, bringing it up from the August 2017 security patch. The update is now being rolled out for users over-the-air in India and it can also be downloaded from our firmware section.

The Galaxy A8 (2018) was the first device to receive the March security update after Samsung detailed it earlier this month. The company has promised to release monthly security updates for this device but for some odd reason has decided to put the Galaxy A8+ (2018) on a quarterly update schedule.

The Galaxy A8+ (2018) is now receiving firmware version A730FXXU2ARC9 in markets like Russia and Uzbekistan. Given Samsung’s decision to put the device on a quarterly update schedule, it looks like users will have to stick with this patch for a few months. The firmware file can also be downloaded from our database.

The security patch for the month of March 2018 brings fixes for nine critical vulnerabilities in the Android operating system. It also patches dozens of moderate-risk and high-risk vulnerabilities. Fixes for five Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items in the company’s own software are included as well.
