Months after the potentially devastating security flaws in the mobile OS were publicly disclosed, Google continues to send out patches addressing vulnerabilities related to the initial reports. Today's monthly Android security bulletin includes a fix for another flaw in the Stagefright media playback engine, one in libutils where the Stagefright 2.0 vulnerabilities were found, and two in Android Mediaserver where all the vulnerable code runs. The over-the-air update was released today to Google's Nexus devices and will be added to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository in the next two days; Google partners including Samsung were provided the patches on Oct. 5, Google said, adding that the vulnerabilities are patched in Build LMY48X or later, or in Android Marshmallow with a patch level of Nov. 1.
