Android RCE Flaw Finally Fixed
Google finally released the first 2020 Android Security Bulletin. One of the patches fixed a critical remote-code-execution (RCE) flaw. If detected by hackers, the breach could lead to arbitrary code execution. This was only one of several critical and high-severity flaws of Android so far.
Compared to the las 2019 Bulletin, the number of flaws reduced to 7 CVEs during January. Following Google’s procedures, Qualcomm also patched its chipsets for Android devices and fixed 29 high and medium level flaws. Google also confirmed that the RCE flaw took place in the Android Media framework. Other defects were detected in the main framework, which could lead to personal information and code leaks.
Manufacturers, including Samsung, LG, Pixel, and Nokia confirmed to release patches as soon as possible. They will be posted in bundles with scheduled security updates for major models.
