Samsung detailed October 2023 security patch with dozens of fixes

Samsung is very busy these days and working on multiple things right now, such as One UI 6 testing, which is almost coming to the final stage, but the stable update is stuck because the company is waiting for Google to officially release Android 14. But in the case of a security patch, there is no binding on Samsung; it freely releases the security-related update to its Galaxy devices.

Samsung Fixes 12 Vulnerabilities in October 2023 Security Update

Samsung has added a new page to the official documentation with the October 2023 bulletin. In the latest patch, the company has introduced nearly four dozen fixes that will enhance the security of Galaxy devices. In detail, the patch contains 34 fixes added by Google, which enhance the security of the Android OS, while 12 more fixes are included by Samsung, which exclusively resolve the issues found in Galaxy devices.

In those 12 fixes, the company has resolved the issues that are found in the Galaxy devices. If we analyze the official page, the company has disclosed some of them. The company has fixed the different issues, giving the possibility to install different versions of an app on a device to which the attacker has physical access, enabling and connecting to WiFi networks without the user’s permission, exciting harmful code remotely, and many more.

Samsung has already released the October 2023 update to the Galaxy S23 smartphones; however, it is currently available for beta users. The company will gradually expand the update to other smartphone users in the coming days.
