Google is usually the first to release the official Android security bulletins, something normal considering they are the main force behind this mobile operating system. However, this month it seems that LG managed to come first by releasing the first security bulletin of the year.

According to the official entry on the LG Security Bulletins website, "The January Security Bulletin contains the patches for the vulnerabilities from Google and LG. The most severe of these vulnerabilities is a Critical security vulnerability that could enable remote code execution on an affected device through multiple methods such as email, web browsing, and MMS when processing media files."

All in all, LG's security bulletin handles no less than 81 vulnerabilities, of which only eight have been found in LG's software. The update is not out yet, but the list of handsets that will get it is public - the LG G series (G3, G4, G4 Stylus, G5), LG V10, V20, CK, as well as the G Stylo. Depending on region and carrier, the updates "may be released monthly, quarterly or irregularly" and LG also has plans to expand the list above.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
