On selected Samsung Galaxy devices, the updates launched this week are dated "2020-09-01". This means that the seriousness vulnerabilities (EoPs) that need to be corrected by the "security update 2020-09-05" are still exploitable.

Only one of these vulnerabilities, CVE-2020-0402, for example, can allow a user to gain permissions on a device so that it can unlock it and access the file system.

It is recommended that you update your devices immediately, which will happen automatically if you have the "auto-update" settings enabled.
