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."
