With the latest security patch update dated September 1, the company has managed to resolve around 17 issues and with the patch dated September 5, the company has resolved 23 issues. The faults range from critical to moderate. The most severe of them is a critical security vulnerability in the framework component that could allow a remote attacker to cause a permanent denial of service using a specially crafted file.
The tech giant has also posted factory images and OTA images of the latest update for users to upload manually.
