Default S Finder Emergency Update

Has anybody gotten this message/update? Is it safe to update with root?

Yes - I had this too and updated. But I suddenly thought that it didn't seem quite normal

Any news on this yet?

I've just had this flash up on my screen but cancelled it as it didn't look right.

Just checked and it shows in my task manager as a Samsung Apps notice but when I open the Samsung Apps app it disappeared and does not show in Notifications. Very strange, I would proceed with caution until you know for sure that it's an official update
Current devices: Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Projects: Polaris 3D Driver Development Project (P3D) ** Polaris Android Linux Kernel Project

Still have the window up on my screen, not able to find any information on the matter online.

edit: Seems legit, since "Samsung Apps" is running the service/process (EUpdateService) (?)

I'm guessing it's legit. I cancelled it to check which version I currently have and it's 1.0. I went to the Samsung Apps app and found this. S Finder 1.3 ready to update.

If anything, I'll update from Samsung Apps instead of this emergency message thing.
