Recently our Josh Cannell wrote about a troubling vulnerability that could exist in 99 percent of Android devices where malware could bypass the Android security model.
Well, we have some encouraging news, Google has released a patch to fix the security hole, the update has been release to OEM’s and partners.
Gina Scigliano, Google’s Android Communications Manager, said that while Google didn’t have a statement, she could “confirm that a patch has been provided to our partners – some OEMs, like Samsung, are already shipping the fix to the Android devices.”
Tomorrow on Patch Tuesday, Microsoft will be issuing security updates that address multiple vulnerabilities across several of its products. This information was provided by an advance notification of the normal security bulletin released monthly by Microsoft.
