October 2019 security patch comes to Pixel phones with critical bug fixes

At this point, we can't really say Android is the most secure platform today. There are plenty of things to like about Google's mobile operating system. What it does is help a hacker gain root access to a phone.

Google has reportedly notified its Android partners, and the security patch is now also available on the Android Common Kernel.

Somehow, that good work was undone in some later models - or never applied in the first place - leaving a list of vulnerable smartphones running Android 8.x, 9.x and the preview version of 10.

This required Riyad Mahrez and Walker to occupy the right and it caused is some issues from the off. It requires a lot of high-speed running. "I am happy and satisfied because this is how we work".

Google's monthly Android security fixes are normally just for Google devices, but Samsung, Motorola, LG, Oppo, Huawei and Xiaomi are all rolling out their own versions of the October 2019 security update to patch a major zero-day security vulnerability present on several Android smartphones.

"The bug is a local privilege escalation vulnerability that allows for a full compromise of a vulnerable device.If the exploit is delivered via the Web, it only needs to be paired with a renderer exploit, as this vulnerability is accessible through the sandbox", Maddie Stone, Google's project zero researcher mentioned in a post. Therefore, this bug is subject to a 7 day disclosure deadline.

The issue came to light recently when the Google's Threat Analysis Group (TAG) got wind that an exploit for an unknown flaw, attributed to the Israeli NSO Group, was being used in real-world attacks. Those with vulnerable phones should make sure they download the patch as soon as it's available sometime in the next few days. That's refreshing but an Android Open Source Project representative said, "This issue is rated as High severity on Android and by itself requires installation of a malicious application for potential exploitation".
