11 security problems found on Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge
Google's Project Zero analyst team probes Android device for vulnerabilities
Google has discovered 11 potentially high-impact security issues on Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge using a series of tests to assess the device's vulnerabilities.
After a week of testing, the analysts identified device drivers and media processing as the weakest areas on Samsung's flagship device. Although hindered by a number of effective security measures, they found three logic issues, deemed trivial, that were also easily found and exploited.
Samsung has already patched eight of the problems in its October Maintenance Release, identified by Google's Project Zero analyst team, and intends to release the final three fixes as part of a security update within the month.
