Galaxy S8 February 2018 security patch rolling out now

Samsung has gradually been rolling out the February 2018 security patch to compatible devices and with the month now over, it has finally released the latest security maintenance release for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. Both handsets have now received the February 2018 security patch in the United States.

Samsung also rolled out the same patch for the unlocked Galaxy Note 8 in the United States a few days ago. The Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge have already received this update.

Galaxy S8 February 2018 security patch

As we have pointed out recently, Samsung has been taking it rather slow with the February 2018 security patch roll out. It appears that most compatible devices may not receive the latest patch well into the month of March which has begun today. Samsung might very well decide to skip ahead to the March 2018 patch.

The security maintenance release for the month of February 2018 brings fixes for five critical vulnerabilities as well as dozens of medium-risk and low-risk vulnerabilities. It also features fixes for 16 vulnerabilities found in Samsung’s software.

The company is now rolling out firmware version G950USQS2BRB1 for the Galaxy S8 in the United States and G955USQS2BRB1 for the Galaxy S8+. The relevant firmware files can be downloaded from our firmware section here for the Galaxy S8 and here for the Galaxy S8+.

Those who are based in regions where the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update has already been rolled out need not concern themselves with this update. That’s because Oreo for the Galaxy S8 comes with the February 2018 security patch. The United States is one of the markets where Oreo hasn’t been released yet and it’s going to take even longer for carrier-locked devices.

The people at samsung are either deaf (since they are not listening) or blind (they can’t see the requests). They don’t care no more about their previous flagship which was their bestseller last year.

They only care now about their new phone i.e. S9/S9+. So all S8/S8+ owners you are not going to get any attention now or in near future.

Either you cry or shout at samsung in anger. They are not f##king care.

Totalmente decepcionada y enojada! Sin Oreo en mi S8, y sin parche de seguridad…Samsung: sépanlo…son irrespetuosos con sus clientes, se olvidan que hasta hace unos días el buque insignia era S8 y S8+. Saben donde pueden meterse su maldito S9?????? Aunque pudiera no lo compraría definitivamente. Espero que esta semana tenga Oreo, escuchen a sus clientes..aunque no les importe ahora…Van a perder mucho si no escuchan! 🤬

You want the attentions you used to have? Upgrade to s9.
You want Oreo? Upgrade to Oreo.
You want them to care? Just fu*** upgrage to s9!
I would actively advice others against buying any Samsung devices. This is not acceptable; no Oreo, no security patch since NOVEMBER!
It’s unbelievable!

Nothing in Belgium too. No patch, no update to Oreo…. Lux version….
S9 is the new flagship now. We have officially an old phone now. Next one, no Samsung.
Someone has experience with Nokia?

No update(s) for the S8+ in UK yet either and TBQH Samsung’s attitude towards its customers is quite appalling in this respect, I have an unlocked sim free S8+ and it will be my last Samsung phone, I’ve had enough of the apathetic attitude of Samsung who really couldn’t give a “fig” once they have your hard earned cash.

Totally agree. Samsung seems to think that they can treat UK customers like idiots. No offers or gifts for pre ordering – unlike virtually every other market. Disabling major selling features like mst. Stupidly late software updates, and we are charged more for our devices than most other markets to boot. Way to kick your UK customers in the nuts. This is the best way to put people off of purchasing further Samsung products. Way to go Samsung. Give yourselves a pat on the back!

Even in Iran they are giving it away with free wireless charger, 128GB SD, 20GB internet, cover and extended warranty.
I wouldn’t go for it anyway. Maybe if it was free :))
