The start of a new month means new Android security updates, and today Google posted the details about the patch that’ll be going out to devices.
The July Android Security Bulletin is split up into two sections. The first is similar to the patch summaries that we’ve seen in the past, detailing the different fixes that are included in the July 1 update. There are 22 vulnerabilities that’ve been patched, including two marked as “Critical” and 11 that are “High.”
Meanwhile, a second section for a July 5 update includes fixes for bugs that are all affect Nexus devices and are all described as device-specific. Google says that the July 5 security patch addresses all of the July 1 vulnerabilities as well as 32 other bugs, seven of which are marked as “Critical.”
Google says that it notified its partners of these vulnerabilities on June 6 or earlier. BlackBerry has already released the July security update to the Priv. If you’ve got a Nexus device, you should be getting your July security update from Google in the coming days. Nexus owners can also flash your device's newest factory image from Google’s Android Developers site. Just keep in mind that flashing a factory image will also wipe your device.
