Google Android Operating System < 5.1.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8666
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The Google Android operating system prior to 5.1.0 is affected by the following vulnerabilities

- An overflow condition in the 'print_option()' function of the DHCP client daemon 'dhcp.c' is triggered when handling DHCP options. With a specially crafted ACK packet response, a context-dependent attacker can execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-7913)
- There is an integer overflow conditions in the 'GraphicBuffer::unflatten()' function in 'platform/frameworks/native/libs/ui/GraphicBuffer.cpp' related to a large number of file descriptors or integer values. This may allow a malicious application to corrupt memory, causing a crash or potentially executing code with escalated privileges. (CVE-2015-1474)
- There is an integer overflow condition in the 'BnAudioPolicyService::onTransact()' function in 'IAudioPolicyService.cpp'. The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated when handling a bound array size. This may allow a local attacker to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1530)


Upgrade to Google Android operating system version 5.1.0 or later.
