August security patch rolling out to Pixel/Nexus devices, factory images & OTAs live

Late last month, Google announced that Android O’s official launch is coming soon. In the meantime, the August security patch is now rolling out. It contains the usual minor bug fixes and security patches for current Pixel and Nexus devices.

Like last month, there are again separate builds for Deutsche Telekom, Verizon, and T-Mobile, Fi carriers, and Rogers Pixel devices.

There are 28 issues resolved in the security patch dated 2017-08-01 and 14 in the 2017-08-05 one. Google notes that the two security patch level strings provide “Android partners with the flexibility to more quickly fix a subset of vulnerabilities that are similar across all Android devices.”

Google devices will receive the latter patch, while devices from other manufacturers will also feature OEM-specific fixes. This month’s bulletin also includes a new section that lists patches that are specific to Google devices.

Vulnerabilities range from moderate to critical, with the most severe possibly enabling remote code execution when browsing, using email, or MMS. However, Google notes that there are no reports of customers being affected by these security issues.
