Vulnerabilities > CVE-2015-7889 - Permission Issues vulnerability in Google Android
The SecEmailComposer/EmailComposer application in the Samsung S6 Edge before the October 2015 MR uses weak permissions for the com.samsung.android.email.intent.action.QUICK_REPLY_BACKGROUND service action, which might allow remote attackers with knowledge of the local email address to obtain sensitive information via a crafted application that sends a crafted intent.
Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE)
Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)
- Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
