Beating Expectations: Android Security Patching for PRIV

by Volker Weber

Google releases Android security bulletins – a list of vulnerabilities – on a monthly basis, and the timely release of patches for these vulnerabilities is needed to reduce the risk of their exploitation. The following table shows how the world’s Android OEMs (phone and tablet makers) have performed in their patching programs. Each cell shows how many days elapsed between Google’s public disclosure of the monthly vulnerability list and the availability of a corresponding OEM patch to address the list.

BlackBerry CSO David Kleidermacher is rightfully proud of BlackBerry's achievement.

Wow, indeed! I *can* see myself picking up a Priv, if it was an unresitable offer 😁

It's not easy keeping things uptodate. Android and Swiss Cheese have almost the same amount of holes. But we try to keep on the ball. Not many other manufacturers can say that.

But it still surprises me how little most people actually care about security...

"...But it still surprises me how little most people actually care about security... "

I think this should be "..how little most people know about security...". It's not about care it's about knowledge. They would care if they would understand.

@Pedro: You are so right. But many just aren't willing to learn.
