As of now, Samsung has not yet started rolling out its devices with the December 2023 security update, but it has provided a preview of what the new update will bring in its latest security patch.
With a total of 75 fixes for known security vulnerabilities, this update is expected to be implemented on a variety of smartphones and tablets in the coming days.
Monthly Security Updates
Of the 75 fixes, 54 come from Google and have been incorporated into the Samsung security update. In addition, Samsung Semiconductor has contributed four fixes for Exynos-related issues, while Samsung’s smartphone division has addressed 16 security flaws in the previous software version. Among the Google fixes, seven are considered critical, and 43 are high priority, with four fixes not applicable to Samsung devices.
The 16 fixes provided by Samsung include nine high-priority and six moderate-priority issues. These address problems in key areas such as Knox, memory and integer overflow, AR Emoji, bootloader, Smart Clip, and the Contacts app. For more specific details on these fixes, it is recommended to visit Samsung’s dedicated security webpage.
Samsung is expected to begin the rollout of the December 2023 security update on its high-end devices, then expand to tablets, mid-range phones, and eventually reach more affordable phones. Given the staggered nature of the deployments, it may take at least a month for the update to be available on all compatible devices.
