There is now widespread publicity about security vulnerabilities on the Samsung S5 range of phones:
This was fixed by Samsung in August 2016:
The last security patch released by EE for the S5 Neo (SM-G903F) predates that.
Can someone from EE confirm:
a) Is the S5 Neo supplied by EE still vulnerable to this attack?
b) What steps are EE taking to work with Samsung to get this security update released to their phones.
For avoidance of doubt, ALL of the other major networks in the UK have released this patch some time ago. Why hasn't EE, or doesn't it care for its customers data?

The last update I received was on 11th September 2016, but this was predominantly to fix the WiFi calling issue introduced in mid July 2016 release, and AFAIK didn't include any additional security fixes!
Is there an easy way of telling if the release in September included fixes for this critical security issue, as I know EE takes a *very long* time testing releases!
