Google today highlighted its March security patch, which is first being delivered to Nexus smartphones and tablets. The patch resolves 16 issues, of which six 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 to the risks on February 1. Google has already made the patch available in factory image form via the Google Developer Site. It will release the associated new builds 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. Google is committed to providing monthly security updates to Android handsets.
