In Asia and Europe, the Galaxy S20 FE is now receiving the July security update.

Advertisement THE JULY SECURITY PATCH’S CONTENTS HAVE BEEN DESCRIBED BY SAMSUNG. Since last week, Samsung has been updating its devices with the July security patch. It published the new SMR’s comprehensive information earlier today. We are once again receiving solutions for numerous vulnerabilities. The company specifically lists solutions for 41 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items and 23 Android OS concerns. SVEs are flaws that solely impact Samsung’s Galaxy tablets and smartphones.

This month, three critical severity Android OS vulnerabilities were addressed. If an attacker used them to their full potential in the field, these could seriously harm users. Furthermore, Samsung classified at least seven SVE instances as having high-severity problems.

Some of those problems exposed the Knox security platform of the business, enabling attackers to conduct specific operations without the appropriate authorization. By doing a factory reset on the device, attackers might also disable the keyguard and get around the Knoxguard lock. Attackers were able to alter the recommended network type in TelephonyUI, which is another serious problem brought on by insufficient access restriction.

The Galaxy S20 FE and the Galaxy A53 are now receiving all of these updates. The latter might also receive extra optimizations and feature upgrades. Be on the lookout for the newest SMR if you use one of these devices. As per usual, as soon as the OTA (over the air) update reaches your device, you will receive a notification.
