What is SAMSUNG's and VZW's timeframe to address the recently announced (and widely publicized) Broadcom wifi vulnerability that affects flagship SAMSUNG devices in addition to recent iPhones? This one is serious!

Apple has already released iOS 10.3.1 to address the issue. SAMSUNG releases its updates via the carriers. It would be most appropriate for VZW to reach out to SAMSUNG on behalf of their customers.

The Pixel and Nexus devices are getting the April security updates now.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
