The calendar has flipped to June, which means it’s time for Google to release a new Android Security Bulletin. Like clockwork, Google releases these bulletins on the first Monday of every month. The security bulletin comes along with OTA and factory images for the latest security patches. Pixel and Nexus devices can get the latest patches up and running right now.
As per usual, the most severe patches relate to the media framework and possibly permitting a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code through a “crafted file.” Again, they had no reports of customers being affected by this vulnerability.
