Samsung hasn’t released the March 2018 security patch for a great many devices as yet but we can expect the company to pick up the pace in the coming days. Most of the devices that have received this security maintenance release so far have been mid-range devices with the Galaxy S9 being the obvious exception. Samsung has now started rolling out the March 2018 security update for the Galaxy S8+.

Galaxy S8+ March 2018 security patch

Samsung detailed the March 2018 security patch two weeks ago. Since the company had its hands full with the Galaxy S8 Oreo update last month, many of its devices didn’t receive last month’s patch and will instead be bumped up straight to the March 2018 patch.

The security patch for the month of March 2018 brings fixes for nine critical vulnerabilities that were discovered in the Android operating system. Fixes for dozens of moderate-risk and high-risk vulnerabilities are included as well. Five Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items that were discovered in the company’s own software have been patched in this security maintenance release.

Samsung is now rolling out firmware version G955FXXU1CRC7 for the Galaxy S8+ in Germany. The firmware is rolling out over-the-air and also happens to be available for download from our firmware section. It’s only a matter of time before the latest security maintenance release is also sent out for the Galaxy S8.

Update: Check out the image below for the complete changelog of the March update.
