It’s February, so that means Google has released a new set of Android security patches that have been found and fixed in the last month. The update also means that Nexus devices still covered by the software update process will also be able to either flash a new image, or will receive an Over The Air (OTA) update with the new updates in a few days.

The list of issues included in the February security update with the associated Common Vulnerability and Exposure ID (CVE), as well as a description of and severity of the issue has been detailed by Google on their security blog:
