Android 12 logo

With Beta 4.1, Android 12 is about to start. But until then, Android 11 is now up to date with the September 2021 security patch for the Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5 and Pixel 5a.

The September 2021 Security Patch (09/01/2021) fixes 17 issues and the 09/05/2021 (23 issues). The vulnerabilities range from high to critical, the most severe being related to the media framework and potentially allowing a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code from a compromised file.

In the last Android Security & Privacy Year in Review, Google states that " no critical security vulnerabilities affecting the Android platform have been made public without a security update or workaround for Android devices being available" .

The specific bulletin for Google devices lists 9 security fixes and no functional updates. The Pixel 5a receives a cumulative update from the June 2021 security patch. There are separate builds for the USA and Japan versions.
