Default Auto Update to SE Linux Secutiry Policy

Auto Update to SE Linux Security Policy

Hi All,

Samsung just sent out a notice to allow auto updates to the SE Linux Security Policy.
I would suggest being very careful and NOT let Samsung auto update the security policy.
You might find root apps that work now, not working after a policy update.
It also allows them to change the kernel, etc. and you will have no idea.

Just say no!!!

On my phone!!! It was an alert asking for permission.

Look in:
Settings -> More -> Security -> Security update service (Toward the bottom).
They pushed a notification so that I would allow them to update policies automatically.

There is an update available if you select Check for updates.
Don't accept. I have no idea what accepting will do.

How do I completely turn this off??


Update -> Froze the app "Security Policy Updates"
Now if you try to check for updates nothing happens.

What software are you on? I don't see this on 4.2.2, but it is possible that it was removed from the ROM that I am running.
Galaxy S5, Nexus 7 2013 (Stock), Thunderbolt - Shifts3ns3 2.1.1, Transformer Prime - Stock Rooted, Rezound - Vigor360. Loaned out to family: Samsung Galaxy S IV - BoneStock V1.1.4, OG Droid - CM7, Samsung Galaxy S III - CleanRom

You can turn the auto-update off. So it can't do it again.
I don't like blind update where I have no idea what's happening.
