Samsung starts pushing Exynos security fix update
posted by Michael H. / Jan 16, 2013, 2:26 PM
The security flaw was found by the community at XDA, and even when the flaw was found, a good-natured dev at XDA came up with a fix, for those willing to trust his work. The flaw had the potential to be quite bad, but the issue was made even worse by the fact that back in November it had been discovered that S-Note stored your Google account credentials in plain text, and that file could be accessed on a rooted device.
Samsung had pushed an update patch to some Galaxy S III devices earlier this month, but today it also pushed updates for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note II, and the Sprint Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch. The updates are pushing out over-the-air now, but Samsung still has work to do as a number of Galaxy model smartphones remain at risk.

Does the Galaxy Note (GT-N7000) has this issue?
