Samsung describes its Security Update January 2016

Samsung is trying to keep up with Google and its monthly update to correct security vulnerabilities terminals. Patch January arrives and the Korean brand in details its content.
Security has always been a sensitive issue on Android and after the media display about Stagefright, Google decided to work extra hard to make her more secure OS deploying security updates every month. If for some manufacturers this rate seems unrealistic, others such as Samsung, keeping pace. For the fourth consecutive month, the South Korean giant therefore deploys an update on some of its devices to correct a number of problems that can endanger the integrity of the device and its data.
With a little delay so compared to Google, Samsung unveils new SMR (Security Maintenance Release). This obviously contains all patches for the security release that day of January of Android, but also some additional fixes specific to smartphones and tablets of the brand. Some of these vulnerabilities have been discovered since last September already and just are not rectified today.
