Google Releases March’s Android Security Update With Bug Fixes For Nexus And Pixel Devices


New month, new Android Security Update. March is already started and today, Google drops security patch for Nexus and Pixel devices with some bug fixes for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.




There are 16 issues resolved in the March security patch dated 2018-03-01 and 21 in the 2018-03-05 one. Vulnerabilities range from high to critical, with the most severe relating to the media framework and possibly permitting a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code through a “crafted file.”


As usual, Google notes that there are no reports of customers being affected by these security issues.

The dedicated bulletin for Google’s phones and tablets lists 43 security fixes and 3 functional updates. The Pixel and Pixel 2 XL benefit from faster screen wake when unlocking with a fingerprint and improved crash reporting. Meanwhile, the latter device has improved audio performance when recording video.
