Android 7.1.1 brings December security patch
December's security patch fixes some critical security vulnerabilities that could enable arbitrary code execution. However, Google has confirmed that there are no reports of active exploitation of these vulnerabilities in the wild. The update fixes a total of 40 vulnerabilities ranging from severe to moderate.
The most severe of these issues are Critical security vulnerabilities in device-specific code that could enable arbitrary code execution within the context of the kernel, leading to the possibility of a local permanent device compromise, which may require reflashing the operating system to repair the device.
We have had no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse of these newly reported issues.
