Date Mon, 16 May 2016 20:09:02 GMT
This is pretty important, and the vulnerability has been out for a week now
but has just been released for Studio.  (Upstream IntelliJ had it patched)
 Everyone using Studio should update ASAP.

Subject: Android Studio Security Alert: Update to Android Studio 2.1.1

Dear Android Studio Developer,

As an app developer on Google Play, we wanted to make you aware of an
important security update for Android Studio.

On May 11th, we released the Android Studio 2.1.1 update
This incremental update addresses a security vulnerability in the
underlying IntelliJ platform that affects all previous versions of Android
Studio. The vulnerability concerns the IDE itself and has no effect on
individual apps.

*Please update to Android Studio 2.1.1 as soon as possible*. More
information about the vulnerability can be found in this G+ posting
JetBrains has also released more details
on the vulnerability.

To address this security vulnerability, simply go into Android Studio and
check updates. For OS X users, navigate to the *Android Studio* Menu and
click *Check for Updates*. For Windows or Linux users, navigate to the
*Help* menu and click *Check for Updates*. You should be running at least
Android Studio 2.1.1. The update message was sent as a in-product
notification to all users of Android Studio. If you want a new install, you
can download v2.1.1 from the Android Studio website

If you’re still using v1.5.x and not able to switch to v2.x immediately,
please download Android Studio v1.5.2 from the Android Studio tools website
