Google publishes September security patch changelog, but factory images are still MIA


HMD was the first company to release the September security update for one of its Nokia smartphones, but Google should be fast behind. The search giant has just published the Android Security Bulletin for September 2017, which contains all the fixes included in the update.

Usually, the changelog was published along with the OTA files and factory images for the update, but this time Google will not release them. The Mountain View company announced that Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus Player, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P devices will be receiving the September security update as part of the upgrade to Android Oreo.

The update has two security patch level strings, thus allowing Google to provide Android partners with the flexibility to more quickly fix the vulnerabilities that are similar across all Android devices.

The September security update contains a bucket load of fixes that have been detailed by Google on its official website. The most severe of the issues that have been addressed in the update is a critical severity vulnerability in media framework. For the full list of fixes included in the latest security patch, you can check out the link below.

Great work by Google yet again getting the security updates out for the best group of phones before anyone else. Other OEMs need to step up and take notice.

Google has to make it available you clown. You are wrong yet again. You are clearly triggered because I said they're top dog.

Google having to make it available has nothing to do with the fact that Nokia still beat them to the punch with releasing it, you idiot. I'm obviously correct, as evident by even this article. Lol, you're so triggered because Nokia beat Google to the punch with releasing this security update. Your extreme rectal pain with leakage is duly noted.

Who gives a crap? You just wanted to find something to btch and moan about. Gtfo it. You live in NYC, go outside and get "some." Step into the ballpark for once. I don't care about it as much as you do.

Lol, you do. That's why you responded. You just wanted to cry and btch and throw a tantrum because I posted facts to correct your ignorance. Gtfo of your crying because I proved you wrong. You live in some backwoods swamp area. Go outside and play with the gators and get "some" from the muskrats around there. Try and come close to the ballpark for once. Yes you do, stop lying. If you didn't, you wouldn't get so triggered when I post facts about it.
