(2) A malicious application without any permission could remove applications and gain read and write access from the list of locked applications configured in AppLock, therefore bypassing the security pattern configured by the user to protect them. (two advisories in document)
(2) A malicious application without any permission could gain read and write access to the list of Private Contacts and blocked numbers configured in ZenUI Dialer & Contacts. (two advisories in document)
(2) A malicious application without any permission could gain read and write access to the private SMS and MMS messages configured in ZenUI Messaging as well as send arbitrary SMS messages to arbitrary phone numbers. (two advisories in document)
Synaptics TouchPad Windows driver leaks multiple kernel addresses and pointers to unprivileged user mode programs. This could be used by an attacker to bypass Windows Kernel Address Space Layout Randomization (KASLR). (CVE-2018-15532)
Android Open Source Project (AOSP) vulnerability discovered, where a malicious application without any permission could exploit access to the user personal dictionary.
HT-TM05 is vulnerable to unauthenticated remote code execution in the /sysfirm.csp CGI endpoint, which allows an attacker to upload an arbitrary shell script that will be executed with root privileges on the device.
The latest version of Microsoft Basic Render Driver (BasicRender.sys 10.0.15063.413) is vulnerable to information disclosure. This issue allows an unprivileged user to map the kernel memory layout.
Historically, ATMs have been designed without privileged separation between the safe and the internal operating system. In an attempt to address this security concern, Diebold developed the AFD platform. The Opteva line of ATMs with the AFD platform contain an upper cabinet for the operating system and a lower cabinet for the safe, each with its own authentication requirements. Using reverse engineering and protocol analysis, IOActive found a critical vulnerability in the tested version of the Opteva ATM with the AFD platform. Despite its separation of privilege and authentication requirements,…
Ninebot Limited, which purchased Segway Inc. in 2015, sells a line of self-balancing motorized electric scooters used for transportation under 30km/h. Recently, issues regarding the safety of scooters have surfaced, primarily caused by poor manufacturing quality or a general lack of safety-centered design.
IOActive security researchers tested versions 1.4.2 for Windows and OS X and 4.0.4 for Android, of the Confide messaging application by reverse engineering the published application, observing its behavior, and interacting with the public API. During the evaluation, multiple security vulnerabilities of varying severities were identified, with corresponding attacker exploitation risks ranging from account impersonation and message tampering, to exposing user contact details and hijacking accounts. The issues were reported to the vendor through responsible disclosure and many, including those identified as being critical, were subsequently addressed and resolved quickly…
