Samsung rolling out November 2018 security patch fixing critical vulnerabilities

06 November 2018 0

Samsung rolls out security patches frequently to keep its smartphones up to date and immune to the known security vulnerabilities. The Korean tech giant has now rolled out November 2018 security patch. Previously few devices did get this update namely Galaxy J7 Prime, Galaxy Tab 2 Active, Galaxy A3 (2017) and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016), Galaxy J7 Duo. This update fixes 11 very critical vulnerability that was discovered earlier in addition to various high and moderate-risk fixes.


One of the most severe vulnerability gave the attacker a chance to execute arbitrary code which is now fixed. Samsung also rolled out 8 Samsung vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items. One vulnerability allowed the unauthorized users to see in the incoming notifications and their contents even if the notifications were configured in the settings to be hidden on the lock screen. This was due to the inappropriate handling in ‘Standalone DeX’ mode.

This latest update is now being rolled out to more device. We are quite hopeful to see the improved pace of Samsung that is eager to push security updates to its consumers where mid-ranged smartphones generally get such updates fast compared to the flagships.
