Google Releases September Android Security Update for Nexus, Pixel Devices

Technology Inceptions

Google has released the September 2018 android security update for the supported nexus and pixel devices. The September android security update fixes as many as 59 issues through two different patch levels and comes as the first update for the devices running android 9.0 pie that the search giant released as its latest android version last month. It addresses vulnerabilities ranging from high to critical. However, Google, as usual, assures that there are no reports of users being affected by the security issues that have been fixed through the new update. The list of compatible devices for the September android security update includes pixel 2pixel 2 xlpixelpixel xlpixel cnexus 5x, and nexus 6pEssential products has also separately released the newest .android security update for the essential phone.

Google resolved 24 problems on September 1, 2018, and patched an additional 35 on September 5, 2018. Out of all of these fixed issues, the most severe was a security vulnerability in the media framework. Before the patch, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code using a “specially crafted file … within the context of a privileged process.

The update should be hitting phones now, but you can also download the OTA image and factory image from Google for your flashing pleasure. From here it’s up to other manufacturers to release this security patch for their users, though it’s very rare that this happens consistently and in a reasonable amount of time.
