Moto X Play users on Android 7.1.1 Nougat Soak test are now getting another Software update with Blueborne Patch
Android Oreo is already official and there we've the Moto G4 Play, Moto X Play, and Moto X Pure users who are still waiting for Android Nougat update for their Smartphones. All we know at this point is that, yes, Lenovo is testing Nougat on these phone. The company isn’t providing a timetable like it did earlier this year, though. That’s likely because it doesn’t want to give false hope and disappointment to their customers.

Earlier this month, Motorola started rolling out Soak test of Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the Moto X Play with August 1, 2017 Android security patch, Video calling Duo application, Stability improvements other interesting features along with Android 7.1.1 Nougat goodies. 


Then again, there's another update for the Moto X Play users running Android 7.1.1 Nougat Soak test. This latest software update features build no. of NPD26.48-24-1 and weighs in at around 15.6MB.

The update reportedly brings latest September Security patch and Blueborne Fix. The Blueborne vulnerability was discovered only recently. It’s a Bluetooth vulnerability that leaves Android devices open to a potential takeover by hackers. The vulnerability is also present in Windows, Linux and some iterations of iOS. Note that the device still runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat after the update.

Armis Reported that the BlueBorne spread through the air (airborne) and attacks devices via Bluetooth. Armis has also disclosed eight related zero-day vulnerabilities, four of which are classified as critical. BlueBorne allows attackers to take control of devices, access corporate data and networks, penetrate secure “air-gapped” networks, and spread malware laterally to adjacent devices. Armis reported these vulnerabilities to the responsible actors, and is working with them as patches are being identified and released.

September Android security update resolves 30 issues dated 2017-09-01, and 51 issues in the one dated 2017-09-05. Vulnerabilities range from moderate to critical, and Google particularly notes that it provides "Android partners with the flexibility to more quickly fix a subset of vulnerabilities that are similar across all Android devices."
