Google Released May 2020 Android Security Update For Pixel Devices


Another month, another Android security update. Ahead of the first Android 11 Beta later this month, the next stable update for the Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 4 family of devices is rolling out. The May security patch contains the usual set of security fixes.




There are 15 issues resolved in the May security patch dated 2020-05-01 and 24 for 2020-05-05. Vulnerabilities range from moderate to critical, with the most severe relating to the media framework and a remote attacker possibly executing arbitrary code through a crafted file.
In the Android Security & Privacy 2018 Year in Review, Google notes that “no critical security vulnerabilities affecting the Android platform were publicly disclosed without a security update or mitigation available for Android devices.” Additionally, there was an 84% year-over-year jump in security patches during Q4 2018 compared to the prior year.



The dedicated bulletin for Google’s phones and tablets lists 7 security fixes and no functional updates. The first build this month is just for Pixel devices in Taiwan, with all other phones using the Global B2 version.
