Google Details April Security Patch with Pixel Fixes Aplenty
Google today shared information about the April security patch headed to Pixel handsets over the next few days. The update tackles dozens of vulnerabilities. Google is pushing two separate updates, dated April 1 and April 5, that improve Google Play Protect, Google Mobile Services, the Android media framework, Android runtime, and the core kernel. In particular, Google says it worked with Qualcomm to resolve scores of existing vulnerabilities impacting Qualcomm hardware and drivers back to 2016. The April security patches are being made available to Google’s Pixel and Nexus phones first. It is up to individual device makers to implement the fixes on their own hardware.
