Google Updates Android Security Bulletin

Google has also published the Android Security Bulletin for October which states various security patches for all Android manufacturers. "Android partners are notified of all issues at least a month before publication. Source code patches for these issues will be released to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository in the next 48 hours," Google published in the Android Security Bulletin.


The search giant also added that the most severe of these issues is a critical security vulnerability in the Media framework component. The vulnerability is capable of enabling a remote attacker "using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process," Google said.

Google urges its Android partners to update the security patch as it includes a fix for a framework flaw, which can enable a local malicious application that surpasses the user interaction required for additional permissions. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ smartphones are also getting the October security patches. Other smartphone manufacturers like Essential, OnePlus, and others will being the rollout soon.
