I suspect Samsung has a policy of not complaining about leaked software, perhaps even leaking software deliberately. The Odin software, widely used for flashing/rooting Samsung devices, is supposedly a leak from Samsung. But it seems a bad idea to have leaked the exfat driver. Samsung is in a quandary here: they make very high-quality micro-sdxc cards, but exfat is part of the sdxc specification and they find it hard to support exfat on their own devices.

ODIN leaked from some service center (there are tons of them, so such leaks are inevitable). It's officially used to restore firmware on b0rked phones.

Can you also confirm it's coming from Samsung?

(Sorry if this is an obvious question - I never used ODIN... yet)

Yes, it's definitely coming from Samsung.
