Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on Verizon gets BlueBorne vulnerability fix

Verizon has started pushing out a new update to Samsung Galaxy Note 4 units on its network. The update arrives as software version MMB29M.N910VVRS2CQE1, and brings along fix for the BlueBorne vulnerability.

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to take control of your device via Bluetooth. The process does not even require the device being attacked to be paired to the attackers device, or even to be set on discoverable mode.

As for other changes included in the update, the official Verizon website only says “most up to date Android security patches,” so we are expecting the September security fixes.

Recently, the OnePlus 3/3T also got the BlueBorne vulnerability fix in their latest Open Beta update.
