    Got my Security Update Gulati on my Verizon Note 4. It loaded and installed without a problem. My question is "what are these security updates for and what do they effect?".

    Basically they patch "holes" in the security of your devices. It might be a well known issue, or it might be one that a security researcher found that they want to close before the "bad guys" start to use it to do bad things.

    You can equate them to the patches and updates that Microsoft and Apple put out for their own OS's frequently.

    If you're looking for more specific things like "what EXACTLY did this patch", that information is purposely left unstated, so that other devices that didn't get a patch for it yet, won't become targets.
