Google releases June Android security patch for Pixel and some Nexus devices

Google has released the June Android security path for Pixel and Nexus devices starting today. The patch, dated June 1st, 2018 fixes 20 vulnerabilities while the June 5th, 2018 patch fixes 38.

According to Android Security Bulletin claims that the severity of these vulnerabilities ranges from critical to high. The Bulletin also adds that the most severe issue "is a critical security vulnerability in Media framework" which could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code using a specially crafted file.

However Google is confident, none of their customers have been affected by these issues. The company is now rolling out the patch to its Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 2, Pixel XL, Pixel, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 5X.

The June security path also includes the following updates that address functional and non-security issues:
  • Improved Bluetooth LE performance (all devices).
  • Improved antenna switching in areas with weak coverage (Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL).
  • Improved Wi-Fi connectivity with certain Wi-Fi access points (Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL).
  • IMEI software version number (SVN) displays correctly as a number (Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL).
