March 2018 security patch rolling out to more devices
Samsung detailed the March 2018 security patch over three weeks ago. It brings all of the fixes that are part and parcel of Google’s Android Security Bulletin – March 2018 package.
The update fixes nine critical vulnerabilities in the Android operating system aside from scores of moderate-risk and high-risk vulnerabilities. It brings fixes for five Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items as well which were discovered in Samsung’s software.
The March 2018 security patch has only been released for a handful of devices so far including the Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy S9, Galaxy J2 Prime, Galaxy S8/S8+ and others. We can expect it to make its way to more compatible devices in the coming days.

Firmware version G930FXXS2DRC3 is now out for the Galaxy S7 in several markets including the Netherlands, Italy, Luxembourg and the Czech Republic. It’s also readily available for download.
