Google this week announced the availability of a new set of monthly patches for the Android operating system, containing fixes for a total of 30 vulnerabilities.

The first part of the update, the 2020-11-01 security patch level addresses a total of 17 vulnerabilities in the Android runtime, Framework, Media Framework, and System components.

The most serious of the flaws is CVE-2020-0449, a critical bug in System that could be exploited to execute code remotely. The issue impacts Android 8.0, 8.1, 9, 10, and 11.

“The most severe of these issues is a critical security vulnerability in the System component that could enable a proximal attacker using a specially crafted transmission to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process,” Google explains.
