Google Releases May Security Patch for Pixel and Nexus Devices

Google today began rolling out the May security patch to both Pixel and Nexus devices. once again, there are two different security patch levels rolling out: one labeled 2017-05-01 and the other 2017-05-05. Each has their own set of bug fixes but combined they resolve a hefty 118 different software vulnerabilities discovered over the last month. The most severe of these security holes happens to be a remote code execution vulnerability within Mediaserver.

You can download factory images of the May security patch for your device here, while OTA images are downloadable here. Those without a Pixel or Nexus device will likely still get this month’s security patch, but it could be awhile before that time comes.
