TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: Google Releases Security Advisory for

Android to Address Several Critical Vulnerabilities


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: Google Releases Security Advisory for Android to Address Several
Critical Vulnerabilities
Description: Google has released a security advisory aimed at addressing
several critical Android vulnerabilities. The most severe of these
vulnerabilities is CVE-2016-0801/CVE-2016-0802, a flaw that “could allow
a remote attacker to use specially crafted wireless control message
packets to corrupt kernel memory in a way that leads to remote code
execution in the context of the kernel.” The advisory also addresses
remote code execution flaws found in Mediaserver as well as privilege
escalation attacks in other drivers and services. Google has released
updates for Android 4.4.4, 5.0, 5.1.1, 6.0, and 6.0.1. Partners have
also been informed of these vulnerabilities.
