As part of its monthly release of Android Security Bulletin, Google just released the security patch for November to most of its Nexus phones. This has been characterized by new factory images that have been posted on the search engine’s Developer’s website. Google has also said that its partners were informed about the matters covered in this security update on the 5th of October and also that source code updates are set for release to AOSP over the next 2 days.

This new update covers seven security vulnerabilities. Two of them are regarded as critical. Google says that the issue regarded as most severe patched here is a vulnerability that can enable remote code execution on a device that is affected through many methods like web browsing, email and MMS when running media files. Though no one is yet to report of making use of any of the vulnerabilities, it’s still satisfying news to learn that Google moved in swiftly and sorted things out before anything got out of control.
