手机数码 2017-11-30 阅读原文

This is unexpected, but we're not complaining.

This past October, a vulnerability with the WPA2 Wi-Fi standard (referred to asKRACK) was discovered – putting a tremendous number of Internet-connected devices and routers at risk.We've seen numerous companies hard at work to get their hardware updated with a patch for this threat, and the latest devices being updated are a few older Samsung handsets on Verizon Wireless.

Both Samsung and Verizon have become quite notorious over the years for sluggish update turnaround times, so it's a pleasant surprise to see this being pushed out to hardware that's over two years old.

The specific devices being updated include theGalaxy S6, S6 Edge ,S6 Edge+, andNote 5. In addition to the KRACK patch, this update also includes the latest November 2017 security patch.

Exact details on the update can be found on Verizon's sitehere.
