May 2017 Security Updates to Google’s Pixel and Nexus Phones

Recently, Google has released the Android security patches for May 2017, dedicated to several devices belonging to various Nexus and Pixel devices. The devices that are receiving the update are the Google Pixel XL, with the versions belonging to Deutsche Telekom and Verizon, Google Pixel (also with the versions of the two carriers), Pixel C, Nexus 6P, 5X 6 and Player, LTE Nexus 9 and Wi-Fi Nexus 9.

Download Availability

All the aforementioned versions for May 2017 are available on the Internet and can be downloaded for the Nexus and Pixel devices that were included in the update. However, if you’re not willing to download the file yourself, you can wait for the official OTA (over-the-air) update to arrive automatically to your device.

Security Patches Issues

The tech giant Google has posted at the same time several details about the May 2017 security patches. The security patches contain 16 issues labeled by the company as being ‘Critical’. Among them, the biggest issue they could find is a flaw where hackers could take advantage of remote code execution on a device that allowed their access with the help of various methods, such as web browsing, email or MMS, when the user is processing media files.

In fact, this is the same description they have used for another Android update, inside which they have released a critical fix for a very important issue. Similarly, the representatives explained that no uses of these issues have been exploited by any attacker. Naturally, fans are happy to see that Google takes care of the safety of their devices and constantly issues updates to keep them secure.

Of course, the fight to keep off hackers and malicious people is a constant one, and it’s good to see that Google is keeping up with the times and the rhythm of the technological evolution.
