Default Still getting security policy update notices

I'm rooted and successfully disabled knox via supersu (as suggested elsewhere regarding this issue), yet got the security policy update notice again today. Anyone else? What exactly do I have to do to turn this off?

Definitely freeze sdm.apk but also fwupgrade.apk also

There's an app called "Security policy updates" on my phone that I've frozen in Titanium Backup. Sounds suspiciously like the one you're looking for *smile*. I've also frozen SDM, as always.

I don't get security policy update notices.

I think SDM is for the regular OTA updates. There's another app with a name that starts "Security policy updates..." with some version numbers after it. I did a force stop on that - haven't frozen it. I suspect that's the one I need to manage.

Anybody actually accept the Security Policy Updates after rooting TW Kit Kat? Does it remove root? Inquiring minds want to know

Thank!

What can be turned off in settings? The only I've gotten this warning to go away was to freeze the security policy updates process I mentioned (that worked for me). If you know of another way, please tell me what I missed.

I've seen this on another unrooted S3. It's quite annoying
