The June monthly security update is now live for owners of the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 5, either Nexus 9, either 2013 Nexus 7, the Pixel C and Nexus Player. Both factory images and OTA zips are now available on Google’s developer site, so hit the links below to grab the latest security patches.Four of the six critical security fixes in this month’s update are related to privilege escalation on Qualcomm drivers and two remote code execution vulnerabilities (privilege elevation and remote code execution is how Stagefright worked, by the way). Almost all of the other fixes in the update also deal with privilege elevation. Keep in mind that Google is trying to eliminate vulnerabilities like Stagefright in Android N.
