Importantly, the April Android security patch comes in two security patch levels that both address various system-level vulnerabilities, ranging from high to critical. The most severe issue that the latest patch fixes a critical security vulnerability in Android’s media framework that could let a remote attacker silently execute arbitrary code using a “specially crafted file”. Google claims that there are no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse of the newly reported issues.

Launched in October last year, the Android Nougat-based Nokia 2 sports a 5-inch LTPS HD (720×1280 pixels) display and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 SoC, coupled with 1GB of RAM.
