Old GMS Core Version Disabling GPP
We are following up on our intention to increase enforcement for devices that have pre-installed apps that modify sensitive security settings, such as Google Play Protect (GPP). Older versions of GMS Core (prior to v17.4.x) include this behavior.
Please be aware that if a build you have submitted or plan to submit for approval contains an older version of GMS Core (prior to v17.4.x), it will be considered to contain a PHA (Potentially Harmful Application) and may render the device not eligible for a GMS approval.

High uplink traffic issue from old Android devices
On June 13th, we received reports that the Android System was consuming significant data traffic on Android 5.1 devices. After analysing the issue, we found the high uplink traffic is from the mDNS system daemon. A recently added feature in Google Play services Version 17.1.22 used the NsdManager APIs which triggered a latent bug that existed in older versions of Android (i.e., pre-Android 8.0). The real issue is the old mDNS code — mDNS can go into an infinite loop on some pre-Android 8.0 devices.
