There’s nothing significant in this update as the previous security update. However, this one does fix that Wi-Fi KRACK bug and installs the November Android security patch. Apart from that, about 6 bugs affecting Samsung devices have also been patched in this update. Google rolled out the November patch earlier this month, which fixes 61 vulnerabilities in Android.
