November Android Security Update Released

With it being the Monday of the first full week of the month, Google’s Android team has released the November Android Security Update today.  The full version for those who want to manually flash their devices as well as the OTA incremental updates are now both available.  Users of eligible Pixel devices and Nexus devices can expect the update to hit their devices in the coming days.

Normally the Android Security Update patches consist of two patches but for November, there are three.  The first patch, dated November 1st, contains 11 fixes as does the second, November 5th patch.  Like previous months, the patch for the 1st contains system level fixes while the one for the 5th contains driver and device specific fixes for the Pixel and Nexus devices.

The third patch, dated November 6th, contains nine fixes which are aimed at fixing WiFi vulnerabilities.

Google Pixel devices will be getting the November 5th update as they have already received the WiFi fixes.
