I (like OP), just assume they're trying to get us to "pre-approve" their updating of the SELinux policies, patching the OS, or some other hardening features to prevent future rooting (and yeah, giving them the benefit of the doubt, probably fight "real" malware too, like it claims, which I'll take my chances on for now). So, since it seems the only way to turn off the nagging notification (until we root) is to blindly accept whatever it is, I just ignore it.

Well... Except for (obviously) searching here to see if you guys are seeing the same thing.

Sorry to resurrect this thread, but is there any further information on this? I'm currently rooted and started receiving the updates. I declined them a couple times and then decided to uninstall the service with Titanium. I'm afraid that accepting the security update will ruin my current root.

I've accepted the updates since I got my phone, was able to root and hasn't messed with root access. A rooted phone with out of date security updates seems like a prime target to me.

I had an update forced on my phone but it failed. I know they're trying to block my root access. How can I disable the ota update?

FWUpgrade.
LocalFOTA.
Samsung Push Service.
Security Policy Updates.
