Google has released the Android Security Bulletin for this month along with updated security patches for recently discovered vulnerabilities. This month’s security update includes fixes for a wide range of vulnerabilities ranging from critical to low vulnerability levels.
There are 28 issues resolved in the security patch dated 2017-08-01 and 14 in the 2017-08-05 one. Google notes that the two security patch level strings provide “Android partners with the flexibility to more quickly fix a subset of vulnerabilities that are similar across all Android devices.”
Google devices will receive the latter patch, while devices from other manufacturers will also feature OEM-specific fixes. This month’s bulletin also includes a new section that lists patches that are specific to Google devices.
Vulnerabilities range from moderate to critical, with the most severe possibly enabling remote code execution when browsing, using email, or MMS. However, Google notes that there are no reports of customers being affected by these security issues.
