We’ve reached mid-September and Google has pushed OTA security updates to its arsenal of devices. The security patch for September was pushed yesterday. Now factory images and OTA images are live and up for downloads. The patch, fixes the recently discovered Bluetooth vulnerability (Blueborne) exposing billions of Android devices to hackers. So, if you have been clamoring for a quick fix, you can pull down one of the images. That is if you have one of Google’s toys.
