Source: Android's January 2024 Security Update Patches 58 Vulnerabilities - SecurityWeek


Google kicked off 2024 with the release of patches for 58 vulnerabilities in the Android platform, along with fixes for three security bugs in Pixel devices.

The first part of Android’s January 2024 update, which arrives on devices as the 2024-01-01 security patch level, addresses ten security holes in the Framework and System components, all rated ‘high severity’.

“The most severe of these issues is a high security vulnerability in the Framework component that could lead to local escalation of privilege with no additional execution privileges needed,” Google notes in its advisory.
