Android’s March 2021 security update rolls out starting today

 

According to a report Today is Monday, March 1, which means it’s time for another security patch update. Right on schedule, Google published the Android Security Bulletin for March 2021. They also published the latest Pixel Update Bulletin which details the latest functional updates coming to supported Pixel phones in the update rolling out today. Meanwhile, multiple Samsung Galaxy phones have already received the March 2021 security update.

March 2021 Security Update Bulletin

In the Android Security Bulletin for March 2021, Google disclosed several security vulnerabilities affecting components such as Android’s runtime, framework, system, and media framework. The disclosed vulnerabilities are patched if your device is running the 2021-03-01 security patch level. As usual, Google has also disclosed several vulnerabilities in closed-source vendor components and the underlying Linux kernel. These vulnerabilities are patched if your device is running the 2021-03-05 security patch level. Just because these vulnerabilities have been disclosed today doesn’t mean they were discovered today — in fact, patches for these vulnerabilities have been in the works for at least a few weeks or even months now.
