SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1034049
CVE Reference:   CVE-2015-6608, CVE-2015-6609, CVE-2015-6610, CVE-2015-6611, CVE-2015-6612, CVE-2015-6613, CVE-2015-6614   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Nov 4 2015
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Google Android. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. An application can gain elevated privileges.

A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error in Mediaserver and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-6608]. The code will run with the privileges of the mediaserver service, which has access to audio and video streams

A remote user can create a specially crafted audio file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error in libutils and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-6609].

A user can exploit unspecified flaws in Mediaserver to bypass security measures and obtain potentially sensitive information [CVE-2015-6611].

An application can trigger a memory corruption error in libstagefright to execute arbitrary code and gain elevated privileges on the target system [CVE-2015-6610].

An application can trigger a memory corruption error in libmedia to execute arbitrary code and gain elevated privileges on the target system [CVE-2015-6612].

An application can send commands to a listening debug port on the target system to potentially gain elevated privileges, such as Signature or SignatureOrSystem privileges on the target system [CVE-2015-6613].

An application can pass data to the restricted network interfaces, resulting in telecommunications data charges or preventing incoming calls or controlling the mute settings on calls [CVE-2015-6614].
