HMD Global has reportedly started rolling out a new update for Nokia 6.1 in India, and the update brings the September security patch. Nokia 6.1 users can check for a prompt in their notifications panel, or head to Settings to see if there is any pending update. The September security patch brings fixes to many issues, including critical security vulnerability in Media framework that could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process. We recommend that you install the Nokia 6.1 update soon, as security patches often fix critical issues related to malware and phishing activities.
