Samsung Illustrated June 2022 Security Patches: Many Vulnerabilities Solved & Models

Published

on


In recent years Samsung has proven very active in software updates for its smartphones on the market, especially in the field of security. Monthly patches are notoriously distributed promptly, often even before the reference month.

For Android security patches updated in June 2022, there were no exceptions, with Samsung starting distribution for a couple of weeks, which is, since the end of May.

We know that the South Korean manufacturer prefers the wording Security Maintenance Release (SMR) for its security updates. These software updates always consist of two parts. In fact, they contain Google’s monthly security patches for the Android operating system and those specifically handled by Samsung.

In recent hours Samsung has also illustrated what they contain: in total, we find 65 fixes, 4 of them with critical vulnerabilities, 14 with high-risk vulnerabilities, and 13 with moderate-risk vulnerabilities. Of these 65 fixes, 48 were provided by Google because they were detected at the Android system level, while Samsung implemented the rest because it was detected at the OneUI level.

Moving on to the second part of the May 2022 update, the one specific to Samsung devices, the manufacturer lists fixes for as many as 32 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (EVS). Here are the most relevant ones:

  • SVE-2021-23082(CVE-2022-28794): Sensitive information exposure in low battery dumpstate log.
  • SVE-2021-24033(CVE-2022-30709): Improper input validation check logic in SECRIL.
  • SVE-2022-0092(CVE-2022-30710, CVE-2022-30711, CVE-2022-30712, CVE-2022-30713): Improper validation in RemoteViews, FeedsInfo, KfaOptions and LSOItemData.

  • SVE-2022-0412(CVE-2022-30721): Improper input validation check logic in libsmkvextractor.
  • SVE-2022-0507(CVE-2022-30722): Bypass of Samsung Account confirmation via hijacking implicit intent.
  • SVE-2022-0526, SVE-2022-0534, and SVE-2022-0535(CVE-2022-30723, CVE-2022-30724, CVE-2022-30725): Leak of MAC address of connected Bluetooth device.
  • SVE-2022-0691(CVE-2022-30726): Unprotected component vulnerability in SecSettingsIntelligence.
