Right on schedule, Google has released Android monthly security bulletin for the month of June along with updated security patches for recently discovered vulnerabilities. This month’s security bulletin includes fixes for a wide range of vulnerabilities ranging from critical to low levels.
Google has again provided two security patch strings to make it easier for OEMs to fix common vulnerabilities across the Android platform. Security patch level 2017-06-01 is a partial string that ensures all vulnerabilities up to the date 2017-06-01 have been addressed while security patch level 2017-06-05 (full) indicates that all vulnerabilities associated with security string level 2017-06-05 including all previous patch levels have been addressed. Google notes the most severe of all patched vulnerabilities is a critical vulnerability in Media Framework that could allow a remote attacker using a malicious file to cause memory corruption during media file and data processing. Luckily, Google has had no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse of any of these patched vulnerabilities.

Apart from addressing security flaws, this month’s security update also contains a fix for freezing issues that many Pixel owners were experiencing:

There is a fix included in the June security update that should address many of the freezing issues that have been reported. The update is starting to roll out via OTA today and will continue to roll out over the coming weeks. Freezing and general device performance issues can be caused my many different things, so please continue to update this post with your individual experiences after accepting the June security OTA.

As usual, security updates will be rolled out to the Pixel devices and supported Nexus devices in the coming weeks via an OTA update. In case you don’t want to wait for automatic roll-out, Google has also provided the factory images and full OTAs for manually flashing.
