Samsung now pushing out more updates to address Exynos security vulnerability

About two weeks ago, Samsung started rolling out a fix to help Galaxy S III owners in the UK with that previously acknowledged Exynos issue. Fast forward to today, and the Korean electronics giant is now delivering an over-the-air update to T-Mobile's Galaxy Note II, which, according to the changelog, "improves security and provides bug fixes" to the famed handset. Meanwhile, Sprint, too, has pushed out a software update, though this one in particular being for the carrier's Galaxy S II Epic Touch 4G -- and it brings security updates that should take care of any existing Exynos vulnerabilities, plus there's also the inclusion of "Sprint Connections Optimizer." Surely, we can expect similar patches for more devices in the days to come, as we're all well aware that Samsung's working hard on solving the problem.
