Posted September 11, 2018 08:16:11google has released an update to its security software to address a number of vulnerabilities affecting over one million devices.
The update, which was rolled out to Android devices on September 8, also affects Microsoft’s Bing search engine, as well as several other sites and apps.
Google confirmed that over one hundred million users in the US have been affected.
The company is now working to resolve the issues, which are being described as “zero-day vulnerabilities.”
The issue affects devices running versions of Google Play for Android (including those running the Play Store) as well, and the company says the update is rolling out to all devices on August 16.
Google says it’s not yet clear how many of those affected devices are actually affected, or if other devices are affected.
Google’s spokesperson did not provide a detailed breakdown of how many devices are impacted.
Google said it is working with the developers of those sites and applications to determine how many affected users have already been patched.
Google says that if you are running the latest version of Play on a device, you should apply the update immediately.
The fix will be applied on September 11 and will be delivered as part of the normal Google Play updates for the next six weeks.
The update will only be available on older versions of Android, so older devices are not affected.
