The Android security bulletin for July 2019 revealed that the update fixes a critical security vulnerability in media framework. The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process using a specially crafted file. But, Google says there are no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse of issues reported. The July security patch also issues fixes for issues found in Library, Framework and System level bugs. The July security patch signed 2019-07-05 also brings additional fixes for Qualcomm components and Qualcomm closed-source components.

The security update is yet to reach a large number of devices. So essentially, it is primarily available for Google Pixel and Essential Phone. Samsung has also pushed the update to Galaxy A40 in certain markets. The update should reach more devices in the coming weeks. Android OEMs are generally slow with updates and push faster when the vulnerability is termed as critical. The July update does fix a critical vulnerability, but it is not as critical as other previous releases.
