Mobile device manufacturer Samsung announced Thursday they will be responding to reports of vulnerability during keyboard updates executed on their Galaxy devices.

For starters, said Samsung on their website, the user and the hacker must be in the same unprotected network, so at least users can breathe easy when they are on a secure network.

With a KNOX-protected device -- a password protected function that gives you two workspaces in one phone -- additional features are at play such as real-time kernel protection that prevent attacks from taking action.

Security updates will be rolling out over the course of the next few days, according to Samsung, who advises customers to make sure their phones have been programmed to receive them.
