Google pushed out its monthly Android patches Monday, addressing 17 critical vulnerabilities, six of which are tied to its problematic Mediaserver component. An additional four critical vulnerabilities related to Qualcomm components in Android handsets including Google’s own Nexus 6P, Pixel XL and Nexus 9 devices were also patched.
“The most severe of these issues is a critical security vulnerability that could enable remote code execution on an affected device through multiple methods such as email, web browsing, and MMS when processing media files,” wrote Google in its May Android Security Bulletin.
