Furthermore, The user received this build on the Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) over-the-air OTA update.  As you can see on the screenshot above, you may notice that the Apps icons has changed into a rounded square. The firmware build details do look legitimate and there are no signs if this update is just a custom ROM, or a port firmware from other devices.  As you may also see at the bottom of the build details the "SE for Android Status" still claims that it is still "Enforcing" to which basically means that the device hasn't been rooted nor modified.
