Google today highlighted its January security patch, which is first being delivered to Nexus smartphones and tablets. The patch resolves 12 issues, of which five are considered critical. The most severe could enable remote code execution via email, the web, and picture/video messages. Google says it discovered the vulnerabilities earlier this year and alerted its parters on December 7. Google has already made the patch available in factory image form via the Google Developer Site. It will release the associated patches to the Android Open Source Project within the next 48 hours, and will push the update over the air to Nexus handsets in the next few days. Google said, as far it is aware, none of the vulnerabilities were exploited.
