WPA2 vulnerability on Samsung Mobile

On the vulnerability notes database  Vulnerability Notes Samsung is listed as having issued a patch.  I realize that Verizon has to check it out before pushing it to customers.  When is the expected date of the push.  I will use mobile data until it is patched.

The October 3rd update included the blueborne patch.  Samsung Galaxy S 6 Software Update | Verizon Wireless

It can take a little while before Samsung gets their numerous devices updated for the latest vulnerability.

Thank you for bringing this to the forums attention. I have a Netgear router and it says that it has to be in bridge mode to have a affect. I just got a update for my router the other day when someone on here mentioned about the Krack that are affecting phones.
