Samsung will soon let its laptops get patches via Windows Update once again

Samsung is now promising to reverse its previous stance and will soon allow its Windows-based laptops to received direct updates to the operating system via Microsoft's Windows Update. This news comes a few days after a security researcher found that Samsung's SW Updater, installed in its laptops, had disabled Windows Update by default.

While Samsung at first denied the claims that its software was blocking updates to Windows from its laptops, it now appears that there's been a change of heart. In a statement sent to Gizmodo, the company stated:

"Samsung has a commitment to security and we continue to value our partnership with Microsoft. We will be issuing a patch through the Samsung Software Update notification process to revert back to the recommended automatic Windows Update settings within a few days."
