Samsung Galaxy S3 latest software update fixes Exynos security exploit

London: More than two weeks ago, it was discovered that the Exynos processor in the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 have vulnerability, which can be exploited by malware and steal personal data of users as well as their lock.

Now, Sammobile reports that Samsung has pushed a software update (I9300XXELLA) to the Galaxy S3 to fix the infamous Exynos 4 vulnerability.

“The security flaw was in the kernel which made the device R/W by all users, apps and gave access to full Physical Memory. In short, this vulnerability gave root permissions to *any* app and there was no control over it but now with the new system update the security hole has been patched,” Sammobile says.

The update Over-The-Air (OTA) bearing number JZO54K (Android 4.1.2) for Samsung Galaxy S3 is only available for the UK (BTU) but other countries will get it soon.

Galaxy S3 users can update their device to the latest firmware via Kies or OTA.
