Last Tuesday, Google released its monthly security report around its Android mobile operating system. A well-filled and rather disturbing bulletin, since in total, these are 52 security holes which have been identified by the Mountain View firm. Of all its breaches, eight are considered to be level "critical”, Reports Android Source, while the remaining forty-four breaches are classified as “tall”. These severity levels were established by Google according to their potential consequences, and the ease with which a potential hacker could have exploited the flaws in question. Among the most serious flaws detected and reported by Google, we find in particular "A critical security vulnerability in the Media Framework component that could allow a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code under the context of a privileged process".

Note that all of these defects relate to Android 8, 9 and 10, and exclude Android 11, its latest version.
