Android mobile users might be glad to know that the crew behind Google’s mobile security has taken the opportunity to roll out an Android update that should fix a couple of security flaws that could potentially put Android handsets at risk if cybercriminals had taken advantage of them. As told by Google to Ars Technica, the first was only designed for the purpose of doing some research, but would have been harmful if modified, plus it was easy to detect and use for malicious purposes.
Samsung was the first to announce it, saying that from now on, it will start rolling out security patches every month for all of its mobile devices that run on the Android mobile operating system. After Samsung’s announcement, Google also made one of its own, introducing a similar monthly update program for its Nexus line of devices. Both companies are planning to deploy their monthly security patches via over the air (OTA) updates.
