Top CVEs

  1. CVE-2024-31317: ZygoteProcess.java has a potential code execution vulnerability due to unsafe deserialization, which could lead to local privilege escalation. No user interaction is required. Source: CVE-2024-31317
  2. CVE-2024-31310: AutofillManagerServiceImpl.java could potentially hide an enabled Autofill service app in the Autofill service settings due to improper input validation, leading to local privilege escalation. User interaction is required. Source: CVE-2024-31310
  3. CVE-2024-3596: RADIUS Protocol under RFC 2865 is susceptible to forgery attacks by a local attacker who can modify any valid Response to any other response using a chosen-prefix collision attack against MD5 Response Authenticator. Source: CVE-2024-3596
  4. CVE-2024-31316: AccountManagerService.java has a potential arbitrary background activity launch due to parcel mismatch, leading to local privilege escalation. No user interaction is required. Source: CVE-2024-31316
  5. CVE-2023-50805: A vulnerability in Samsung Mobile Processor, Wearable Processor, and Modems allows an out-of-bounds write in the heap in 2G. Source: CVE-2023-50805

API Security

  1. Linux Kernel Vulnerability (CVE-2024-39491): A flaw in the Linux kernel's ALSA: hda: cs35l56 driver could lead to the use of an uninitialized cs_dsp instance if the driver is unbound and then re-bound. The issue has been resolved by ensuring the cs_dsp instance is initialized in the driver probe() so it can return an error if it fails. Source: CVE-2024-39491
  2. Node.js Permission Model Vulnerability (CVE-2024-22018): A vulnerability in Node.js affects users of the experimental permission model when the --allow-fs-read flag is used. The flaw arises from an inadequate permission model that fails to restrict file stats through the fs.lstat API, allowing malicious actors to retrieve stats from files they do not have explicit read access to. Source: CVE-2024-22018
  3. PingFederate REST API Vulnerability (CVE-2024-21832): A potential JSON injection attack vector exists in PingFederate REST API data stores using the POST method and a JSON request. Source: CVE-2024-21832
  4. Cache Driver GetBlob() Vulnerability: The Cache driver GetBlob() allows read access to any blob without access control check. If dedupe is enabled, an attacker who knows the name of an image and the digest of a blob they do not have read access to, they may maliciously read it via a second repository they do have read access to. Source: GHSA-55R9-5MX9-QQ7R
  5. RADIUS Vulnerability Detector (CVE-2024-3596): This script detects the CVE-2024-3596 vulnerability in RADIUS/UDP traffic by checking for MD5 collisions. It captures RADIUS Access-Request packets and attempts to generate MD5 collisions to determine if the system is vulnerable. Source: FC48FBCB-006B-56EC-9F5C-50ADFF912DED
