Samsung details contents of July security patch

Right on time, Samsung has taken to its Security Blog to reveal the contents of this month’s maintenance release, which addresses a total of 65 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the Android operating system and 16 weaknesses in the firm’s Galaxy-branded smartphones and tablets.

As expected, the majority of the patches are listed as “privately disclosed” to prevent hackers from exploiting them before the firmware is rolled out to eligible devices. When exactly the upgrade will start making the rounds is unknown, though we expect it to arrive on some handsets as early as next week.

Stay tuned.
