A few weeks back a security exploit was discovered that left owners of select Exynos-powered Samsung devices feeling uneasy. While an independent developer quickly cooked up a fix, Samsung soon acknowledged the issue and pledged that an official patch was in the works. UK Galaxy S III owners can now breathe a sigh of relief, as Sammy has made good on its word and is now issuing an over-the-air update that addresses this potential security flaw. While we're happy to see Samsung actively working on this issue, there's still no word of when the company will release this fix to other devices and additional regions. Hopefully the software's ongoing European tour is a sign of things to come globally.
