Samsung is doing appreciative work in the field of software; the company has covered almost every Galaxy device with Android 13. Some devices have also received new security updates. Now, the Korean giant is expanding these updates region by region for its eligible smartphones. Recently, the company has added one more smartphone, Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, in these new updates catalog.

As of now, the Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip 4 are now receiving the December 2022 security update in Australia. The latest update carries new firmware version numbers F936BXXS1BVKE and F721BXXS1BVKE, respectively. It is also worth noticing that the device has grabbed a November 2022 security update with the beta version of Android 13.

December 2022 security update comes with several bug fixes that improve the overall performance and stability of the device, and as the name suggests, it brings a lot of enhancements to the security of the device, as it adds different types of patches that work as a locked door that protects your data and privacy and enhance your device security mechanism to the next level.

Moreover, if you want to feel more secure in this digital era you should download the latest security updates as soon as possible because Samsung itself adds some fixes with these updates for its Galaxy devices, sometimes the update may also carry some new system-level features that make your device experience more smooth.

December 2022 Security Patch Fixed These Vulnerabilities:

According to the Samsung documentation, the latest patches include the fix to as many as 93 vulnerabilities, 67 of them common to (almost) all Android devices. Of the long list, 5 vulnerabilities are defined as critical, 63 high priority, and 12 moderate. Most of these vulnerabilities affect Galaxy smartphones and tablets with Android 10, Android 11, and Android 12, but some also touch the latest version of the robot. Among the latter, one concerns the RCS system, which would allow malicious actors to access the phone number of an incoming call. It also required action on the vulnerability that would allow access to the contents of the toast notifications of the Personal Area through the Nice Catch app (it is part of the Good Lock package).
