Google has just released the May 2023 security bulletin for its Android operating system. It addresses 52 different security issues in Android and components. The company publishes the security bulletin on the first Monday of each month. Manufacturers of Android devices may then integrate these security updates into their products.
Google's own Pixel devices are usually the first, or among the first, to receive these security updates. Third-party manufacturers, such as Samsung, Motorola or Xiaomi will release updates for their devices as well in the coming days and weeks.
Google explains that a high security vulnerability in the Framework component is the most severe issue in May 2023. It could lead to local escalation of privilege with "no additional execution privileges needed".
Patches are divided into two groups. The first lists security issues in Android and Google Play, the second vulnerabilities in Android Kernel and hardware-specific components, e.g., components from ARM or Qualcomm.
