Google this week released its July 2018 set of Android patches to address tens of vulnerabilities in the mobile operating system, including several rated as Critical.
The Internet giant addressed 11 vulnerabilities as part of the 2018-07-01 security patch level, including three rated Critical and 8 High risk bugs. The issues impact framework, media framework, and system.
All three Critical severity bugs are remote code execution flaws, one for each of the impacted components. The remaining vulnerabilities include information disclosure bugs, elevation of privilege issues, and denial of service flaws.
“The most severe vulnerability in this section could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process,” Google notes in an advisory.
