Android Security Updates

Google published yesterday a list of 42 smartphone models from 12 vendors that run up-to-date Android OS versions with the latest security patches applied.

$150,000 to any security researcher who files a bug report for a remote kernel exploit.
$200,000 to any security researcher who files a bug report for a remote exploit chain or exploit leading to TrustZone or Verified Boot compromise.
The list is meant to help boost sales for the listed models as a reward for vendors who focused on providing their customers with the security patches Google puts out each month via its Android Security Bulletin.
