Google releases Android security update to fix critical vulnerabilities
Google has released a security patch that addresses three high-severity vulnerabilities affecting some of the latest versions of Android, including one that is believed to be actively exploited in the wild. The flaws, tracked as CVE-2023-21085, CVE-2023-21096, and CVE-2022-38181, were detailed in Google’s April 2023 Android security bulletin. The first two vulnerabilities are related to the Android System and could allow for remote code execution via phishing attacks.
