December security bulletin posted ahead of likely Android 8.1 release tomorrow
05 December, 2017, 20:07
These two security bulletins include close to 100 security patches that will be going out to supported devices in the near future. More importantly, it prevents attackers from exploiting the KRACK vulnerability. "We encourage all customers to accept these updates to their devices", Google said.

"Exploitation for many issues on Android is made more hard by enhancements in newer versions of the Android platform". If you get the December 1st security update, then your device will have all the patches from it and previous security updates.
The biggest beneficiaries of Android 8.1 could be those on low-end devices though, as Google has also crafted the Android Oreo (Go edition). "The Android security team actively monitors for abuse through Google Play Protect and warns users about Potentially Harmful Applications".
There are 19 issues resolved in the December security patch dated 2017-12-01 and 28 in the 2017-12-05 one.
The dedicated bulletin for Google's phones and tablets lists 48 additional fixes, though no functional updates are mentioned. What's worse is consumers complained that the November security patch caused their devices to suffer from a battery-draining problem. Google is already aware of the issue, but it has not issued a fix for it just yet.
After selecting the stories you want to package together, you pick a cover photo, give it a name, and post it to your profile. The new update seeks to address those problems by allowing people to hold onto their stories once they are posted.
