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.
