Samsung began rolling out patches over the weekend to fix six critical bugs found in its flagship Android handsets as part of its May patch bulletin. Flaws range from a remote code execution bug to a buffer overflow vulnerability, plus a peek-and-poke command bug that leaves memory locations open on targeted devices.
All six of Samsung’s critical vulnerabilities patched this month were identified in Google’s April Android Security Bulletin. Google released its May Android Security Bulletin last week. In all, Samsung disclosed and patched 27 vulnerabilities, 21 identified as high severity.
