Google has offered details on two of the bugs that it patched in the Android operating system currently available on the T-Mobile G1 smartphone. The two updates are known as the RC29 and the RC30 that began distribution in early November.

The RC29 patch fixed vulnerability in the G1 web browser that could allow hackers to take over the browser. The patch also updated the open source WebKit engine that powers the Android browser.

RC30 patched what Google calls the root console bug. The bug manifested when users were composing email messages or searching contacts where certain words were executed as Linux commands. One user discovered the flaw when typing the word "reboot" into a text message.
