ID SMNTC-111041
Type symantec
Reporter Symantec Security Response

Google Android is prone to an information-disclosure vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this issue to gain access to sensitive information; this may lead to further attacks. This issue is being tracked by Android Bug ID A-119041698.

Technologies Affected

  • Google Android 10.0
  • Google Android 9.0


Block external access at the network boundary, unless external parties require service.
Filter access to the affected computer at the network boundary if global access isn't required. Restricting access to only trusted computers and networks might greatly reduce the likelihood of a successful exploit.

Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.
To limit the consequences of a successful exploit, run server processes within a restricted environment using facilities such as chroot or jail.

Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.
Deploy NIDS to monitor network traffic for signs of malicious activity such as requests containing suspicious URI sequences. Since the webserver may also log such requests, audit its logs regularly.

Do not accept or execute files from untrusted or unknown sources.
To reduce the likelihood of successful exploits, never handle files that originate from unfamiliar or untrusted sources.

Implement multiple redundant layers of security.
Various memory-protection schemes (such as nonexecutable and randomly mapped memory segments) may hinder an attacker's ability to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code.

Updates are available. Please see the references or vendor advisory for more information.
