Samsung Galaxy Owner? A Security Fix Is On The Way

Around 600 million Samsung Galaxy smartphone owners are getting a security fix - sooner or later. Owners of the S4 and later maybe subject to a flaw in the SwiftKey keyboard software that can allow determined hackers to do sketchy things.
The phone maker said that devices running the Knox security software, including the Galaxy S4 and later, will receive new security policies shortly that will "invalidate" the vulnerability.
But devices that don't come with the Knox software will not receive the patch immediately, the company confirmed.
"We are currently working on an expedited firmware update that will be available upon completion of all testing and approval," said Samsung, adding that the fix may rely on carriers approving firmware updates.
